West Virginia University Parkersburg (WVUP) struggled with an outdated website for years and it became unmanageable. The website lacked a Content Management System (CMS), which contributed to the stale and outdated information. The institution could not deal with the problem directly.
Replacing the entire installation with a modern database driven solution on a solid and reliable hosting platform.
August 16, 2013, West Virginia University Parkersburg (WVUP) launched their new website produced by Image Associates. Built on WordPress, the site represented a vast improvement over what they had before.
The response to the new design has been positive, and the rollout has been featured in the local media. (Parkersburg News and Sentinel link: http://www.newsandsentinel.com/page/content.detail/id/577315/WVU-P-launches-new-website.html?nav=5061)
“We chose to work with Image Associates to redesign and launch WVU Parkersburg’s new website because their proposal reflected that they understood our needs and how to best meet them. It’s been a pleasure working with the Image Associates team. Any questions we had throughout the development of our website were answered promptly and thoroughly. They took our heavily outdated website and delivered a final product that is a dynamic, user-friendly website. We’ve received nothing but positive feedback from both internal and external constituencies, and I would be glad to work with Image Associates on future projects.” – WVU Parkersburg Marketing Director Katie Wootton
