Georgia Southwestern State University Launches New Website With Percussion Web Content Management Software; Optimizes Content Strategy and Improves Site Navigation

WOBURN, MA--(Marketwire - Mar 8, 2012) - Percussion Software, a leading provider of Web Content Management and Content Marketing software, today announced that Georgia Southwestern State University (GSW) launched its newest version of www.gsw.edu using Percussion's web content management (WCM) software. GSW has created a compelling new website with an improved navigation and template structure to more effectively engage prospective and current students, faculty and alumni online.

Previously, GSW did not have the control and structure in place to effectively manage their web presence. With Percussion's WCM software, GSW now has the ability to easily manage content, expand the number of content contributors, and enhance the overall web experience. The GSW team was able to deploy the new system on their own, utilizing Percussion's Customer Success team -- reducing the overall project costs.

"We believe our website is the critical first impression that many prospective students have of Georgia Southwestern State University," said Stephen Snyder, GSW director of University Relations. "We recognized the need to make improvements that were not only aesthetically pleasing but also included improved navigation and organizational structure of content. By deploying Percussion's WCM software we have further empowered our faculty and staff to create a more dynamic site to better interact and engage with students online."

Located in Americus, Georgia, Southwestern State University is a public, four-year unit of the University System of Georgia with more than 3,000 students. Georgia Southwestern offers outstanding professional programs of study as well as programs in the arts, humanities, sciences and graduate programs in business, computer science, education, and English. Founded in 1906, Georgia Southwestern is recognized as one of the best colleges in the South.

Recently named a "2011 Trend Setting Product" by KM World Magazine, Percussion CM1 represents a breakthrough in the industry. By delivering advanced web content management functionality as a software package Percussion removes much of the traditional complexity associated with managing content online. Percussion's significant advancement in user interface design makes it possible for users to take control of their web and content marketing initiatives while maintaining the flexibility to address "what's next" on the web. By delivering core functionality as a product rather than a customized framework that is difficult to support and upgrade, Percussion CM1 offers users unmatched simplicity at lower cost.

Percussion is hosting a Webinar roundtable titled "Web and Content Marketing Strategy in .EDU: A Roundtable Discussion" on March 21st at 2pm ET together with GSW. To learn more and to register please visit www.percussion.com/edu-webinar.
