Mary Hare is a growing organisation and becoming ever more diverse in the services it provides. Tribiq came up with a web site for us that meets all our needs, and makes sure that it continues to do so on an on-going basis.
Staff at Tribiq always respond quickly to questions and implement changes and developments promptly. Importantly for us, as an educational establishment that does not have the resources to keep abreast of technical advances that may be of benefit, Tribiq make us aware of new ideas that may be useful.
As a national charity we have to make sure we get value for money and working on the Tribiq CMS system, we are able to get the very best for our limited resources.
Not least, staff at Tribiq are very friendly and pleasant to work with.
Jane McMillan, Development Director, Mary Hare
Mary Hare is the UK's national grammar school for the deaf. However, this simple description belies a wide and complex sphere of activities.
Mary Hare undertakes many activities, including an arts centre, music therapy, hearing aid repair services, earmould manufacture, and many other things. Together with primary, secondary and university eductation, Mary Hare delivers education at university level.
A lively organisation, its objective was to create a site which would enable a flow of up-to-date information - including news and events - by a team of content authors, with the minimum of effort.
Because of this, Mary Hare chose to use Tribiq CMS for the site, leveraging Tribiq's design skills and the CMS's powerful management and Microsites features.
Tribiq CMS's Microsites system allows multiple small websites to be run from within an overall site.
Each Microsite can have its own URL (web address), and to preserve uniqueness of content (an important aspect of Search Engine Optimization), the site's navigation reflects this by changing to the correct URL as visitors navigate around the site.
Each Microsite has its own unique appearance - its own "Skin" - although this is done elegantly, so that all Microsite look well co-ordinated in terms of their visual style.
Tribiq designed all such Skins - 15 in all - and built the site with a hierarchy of Microsites.
In addition, the Tribiq system allows a team of administrators to be defined, each with restricted permissions, so that authors and publishers may perform only certain tasks on certain Microsites.
