KU SCHOOL OF PHARMACY WEB SITE REDESIGNED

AllofE Solutions announced the release of a newly redesigned web site commissioned by the KU School of Pharmacy. The design is geared toward providing seamless integration between the main KU site and the School of Pharmacy site, as well as giving the site a progressive image. The improvements provide a comprehensive navigation structure to organize the hundreds of web pages in the site making it easier to navigate than ever before.

The site redesign works with the School of Pharmacy’s ContentM Content Management System from AllofE to make the school’s web presence both efficient and effective at delivering valuable and timely information to students, prospective students, and faculty. The site’s menu structure, look and feel, and front page layout have all been modified to give it fresher, cleaner feel, and to make it more readable and easier to navigate. Much more than just providing an interface for information, AllofE has leveraged their extensive site design and marketing know-how to provide the optimal online presence for the School of Pharmacy.

The site redesign is part of AllofE’s continued relationship with the School of Pharmacy. AllofE previously implemented a comprehensive Web Content Management system for the school. AllofE also provided the school with a custom-designed interface for collecting and evaluating financial aid applications. AllofE’s wealth of knowledge about the academic industry, gained from years of experience creating academic solutions of all kinds, has helped them to make this ongoing relationship a complete success for all concerned.
