New website launch during a pandemic
We are thrilled to announce that Chester SU have joined the UnionCloud community and went live with their new site last Friday 14th August, check it out here: www.chestersu.com/
Chester Students’ Union were looking for a digital platform partner to help them ensure maximum engagement with all its 13,000 members.
With over 9 satellite sites they were looking for a membership engagement platform that made it easy for students to engage with that was accessible for all. Especially for those students travelling further afield from their central base, in making sure they could still effectively connect and engage with all that they do.
Chester SU will be accessing all of UnionCloud’s functionality to support and effectively engage with all their members needs from a sophisticated content management system.
From online elections, including self-nomination functionality and voting using our progressive web app, our many other modules and suite of API’s giving all Students’ Unions the power to do anything with data.
Alice James, Head of marketing at Chester SU had this to say about working with us:
Migrating to a new website can always feel an unsettling time for Unions. To implement a site during a global pandemic was extremely ambitious to strive for! With the hard work and support of the UnionCloud team our new website is live and we love it.
Working with UnionCloud felt organic and effortless. As a small, stretched team we received so much professional expertise, support and guidance during what should have been a challenging time. Thank you to everyone at UnionCloud but particular thanks to Harry Vann for being a lifeline.
Rebecca Butler, Community Manager for HE in the UnionCloud team said:
As a team we have greatly enjoyed working with Chester SU, from the very beginning we were impressed by their inclusion of students throughout their tender process.
Their hard work and commitment to pulling together a re-vamped site structure in time for a new site launch, during a time that has posed challenging for most through the pandemic is impressive also. We look forward to exciting things ahead working with Chester SU!
Through UnionCloud’s functionality and our experienced support and service we are extremely excited in supporting Chester SU’s ultimate goal to improve the student experience for all at the University of Chester.
Welcome to our community, Chester SU!
