Wallace State Community College Launches New Web Site With Percussion Web Content Management Software

WOBURN, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 17, 2013) - Percussion Software, a leading provider of web content management and content marketing software, today announced that Wallace State Community College has launched its newest version of www.wallacestate.edu using Percussion's web content management software. Wallace State has streamlined the new web site's information architecture and is rapidly scaling the amount of content on the site to improve engagement with students and prospective students.

Wallace State selected and deployed Percussion's CM1 web content management software to ease the previously cumbersome process of managing their web content. With over 20 contributors, Wallace State required a new product that the college could use to provide an easier experience for these contributors to quickly add new content.

"We were looking to streamline our web strategy and address the limitations of our existing technology with a new web design and it made sense to us to also update our content management system," said Kristen Holmes, Director of Communications and Marketing at Wallace State. "The Percussion team has been exceptional to work with as they guided us through the process of bringing the new site live in CM1."

Since opening in 1966 in Hanceville, Alabama, Wallace State has served hundreds of thousands of students. From the very beginning, Wallace State embraced a commitment to excellence that has become not only a tradition but a source of inspiration. Today Wallace State is one of the largest colleges in the Alabama Community College System, serving more than 6,500 students each semester. This college is a virtual powerhouse in educational programming, with more than 50 majors leading to degree, certificate and transfer opportunities. It has been named one of the Top 120 community colleges in America by the Aspen Institute, is ranked in Community College Week as one of the Top 50 colleges in the nation for the number of health care graduates it produces, and is an Achieving the Dream institution.
