DotNetNuke Site of the Month Winner - August

Congratulations to the August DotNetNuke Site of the Month Winner, Piedmont Community College ( Thank you Kevin Tyburski for submitting the Piedmont Site. Piedmont Community College will also be entered into our Site of the Year contest. The winner of that contest will be announced at DotNetNuke World in Orlando on November 10th


Kevin tells us that "We're very excited here at Piedmont Community College to win this award! Hopefully we have done DNN proud with what we're trying to present."

We're using 5.6.2 Professional Edition (transition from Community)

We wanted to meet four different objectives when going through our first complete web overhaul in almost 10 years here at Piedmont Community College. Consistency, collaboration, community and cost. Since we are a community college our areas of marketing and information are much broader than most businesses. We offer over 40 programs of study at multiple locations, covering two counties in North Carolina and helping groups ranging from high school students, current students, retraining businesses to local involvement with our Foundation and community events. The first initial focus was the need to have the information shared and consistent between multiple areas on our web site ensuring it to be correct. From our research gathered we also wanted to display the information in multiple ways based on generational marketing. DotNetNuke has the all the options and tools to achieve this in an easy and functional way.

Making it easy was also a major portion of collaboration. With having multiple locations and many programs of study we needed faculty and staff to be trained on an easy to use system and to be in complete control of the information, while mirroring the approval processes we currently have in place. The Professional Edition allowed us to do all of this seamlessly. It offered the granular permissions, document management and the ability to set up the approval processes based on content. It couldn't have worked out better for us.

Lastly, both community and cost were probably the most important part of the decision. Having a knowledgeable and large community of users. DotNetNuke is head and shoulders above others with users, support and forums as a CMS provider. DotNetNuke was also hands-down the best when comparing cost with features offered with opportunity for expansion. We started with the Community edition and seamlessly transition to Professional. We're continuing to implement new and exciting parts to our web site on a regular basis. We're excited about what the future has in store at Piedmont Community College using DotNetNuke as our CMS."

The September contest is now open, so please submit your DotNetNuke sites and tell your friends to support you by voting on Facebook. And don’t forget, in order to be eligible for our year end “Site of the Year” Award which will be announced in November at DotNetNuke World you must win one Site of the Month Contest.
