Greater efficiency with a multisite for group of schools
NUOVO Scholengroep is a Utrecht-based umbrella foundation that includes 15 different secondary schools.
Since October 2018, Plate has been supporting the content teams of the schools within the NUOVO Scholengroep with a user-friendly CMS within an efficient multisite solution in which functionality and content is shared between the different websites.
How did Plate convince NUOVO?
Plate has oversight of the software and is not dependent on third-party plugins, for example. For larger organizations like NUOVO, it is important that responsibilities are clear and that websites are secure. To meet all the requirements of individual schools, an open source solution required many external plugins. These plugins in turn require maintenance because innovations can move quickly.
Plate provides a secure and scalable solution on which innovations are automatically implemented in a hosted manner. This keeps the technology up-to-date.
The board of NUOVO attaches great importance to a uniform appearance of the schools. Together with the design partner in this case, we designed a theme in which each school can express its own identity, but in which uniformity of the school group is maintained.
Based on the central theme, NUOVO Scholengroep has a website up and running in less than 60 seconds on a test domain in its own environment. For example, a new school can be provided with a strong online appearance in a short time.
With Plate, individual schools are in control. All changes can be made independently within Plate's user-friendly CMS that is fully visually manageable. Thanks to a digital help environment, schools work independently with Plate and questions no longer reach NUOVO's main office.
Lower Total Costs of Ownership (TCO)Thanks to Plate, NUOVO Scholengroep has made efficiency gains in several areas. By centrally managing hosting, management, appearance and modules, the annual costs for the websites within NUOVO Scholengroep have been cut in half.
