To replace an existing outdated solution that had started to fail and was challenging for new staff to learn in order to undertake updating of messages on a regular basis.
Through research and recommendation, a number of suppliers were approached in order to implement an on-site trial.
Suitable products were identified and a rigorous evaluation process undertaken following which Sedao was chosen as the product of choice for the project based on:
- Simplicity of the overall user interface
- Scalability of the rollout across a multi-campus university Stability of the product resulting in less administration support requirements
- Access to technical support
Sedao provided a complete Site License incorporating unlimited use of all software.
- Easy to use intuitive interface with simple editing functionality
- Serviced from a central management account with the ability to have sub-users share editing capabilities
- Manage multiple screens across multiple campuses
Sedao was rolled out across each campus site and is successfully used to disseminate information relevant to each area of the university.
We changed to Sedao over a year ago and have found the solution to be robust and reliable with ongoing upgrades. Any issues have been dealt with efficiently and effectively.
