Located in northwestern Wyoming, Northwest College is a small community college serving around 2,000 students from all around the United States, as well as around the globe. As an educational institution that prides itself in being student-centered and forward-thinking, their web team was looking for a way to be extremely efficient and effective with their limited time and resources.
When looking to implement a CMS, Northwest College turned to dotCMS as a way to decentralize their web content maintenance. dotCMS met many of their higher education requirements right out of the box, making it an easy choice for the web team at Northwest College. However, because they have such a limited web team, Northwest College needed an easy way to make sure they stayed up-to-date on the latest dotCMS upgrades and security fixes without overtaxing their resources. For this, they moved their site to dotCMS Cloud.
“Being on the Cloud has been a lifesaver for me. I try to upgrade our dotCMS instance at least once a year and the support I get from dotCMS to do that is critical. I couldn’t do it on my own.”
