As an ambitious team that creates fresh content regularly, we needed a CMS with the scope to scale up in the future and which offered flexible workflows for publishing.
The Sitecore platform was identified as the ideal platform. As well as offering the opportunity to extend and expand the site, it provides the high levels of security that UK Sport had requested as part of its brief. It gives the organisation greater control over its content too, with each department now able to create, edit and publish their own pages and allowing the in-house communications team to manage the site more efficiently.
An example of Sitecore's efficient content management workflows can be found with one of the newest features of the site, the Jobs area. This has been programmed to allow general users to upload relevant jobs to dedicated parts of the site (Basketball Coach, for example). The job appears in the CMS, where site administrators can choose whether to publish to the front-end.
