What We Do

Every school has a website. That seems like a simple thing to say out loud, but many people don't realize the potential that their website holds for their institution.  The Ellucian Web Services Team tries to help maximize that potential.  The days of your website being an afterthought, or a luxury status item, are long gone.

Ellucian Web Services is part of the Central Technology Services division as a part of the Technology Management team.  We work with other Ellucian teams including Banner, Colleague, and Functional support.    Working closely with other Ellucian teams allows us to integrate your website with Ellucian products you may already have.  We can pull data from systems for use on the website, or push data collected into external backend systems.

The website doesn’t have to be a stand-alone system anymore, especially with Ellucian Ethos making it easier than ever to connect your web site to your ERP.  If you can imagine it, we can do it.

We Can Help

Over the years, we have worked with dozens of different content management systems.  We can provide ongoing maintenance for almost any system that you currently have but, most of the time, we try to redesign and migrate our customers over to a modern CMS like WordPress or Drupal. These modern systems provide a robust user experience and makes web site maintenance easier and cheaper overall by eliminating licensing fees and lowering the maintenance needed to manage the site.

The Ellucian Advantage

Our talented team has written custom tools that only Ellucian can offer to its clients.  Why pay thousands of dollars for external 508 compliance tools when we have one that was written in-house that can accomplish the same thing?  That is the Ellucian advantage!  We also write custom modules for other Ellucian (and third party) systems all the time.  Whether that means creating a complete shopping cart experience for your Ellucian Elevate implementation or something unique for your institution, feel free to reach out to us and let’s talk and see if there is something that we can do to help your institution’s web presence reach its full potential.
