DEVELOPMENT & TRAINING OF DNN CMS
Workforce Velocity serves as a central point of accountability for improved talent sourcing, selection and retention efforts across multiple skills, locations and/or vendors. Focusing on best practices and process improvements, Workforce Velocity takes a collaborative approach that ensures each customer receives the solution that is right for their operating environment.
One of the key selling points of their service offering includes the use of their proprietary software called Workforce Velocity. In a progressive effort to expand the reach of their business, Workforce Velocity sought to sell the software, for lease or purchase, as a single software product rather than as part of an overall service offering.
Following preliminary discussions, we suggested the use of DotNetNuke (DNN), a .NET open source platform, as the best choice for the new Workforce Velocity website. Although Workforce Velocity was a Linux shop and Joomla was the most obvious choice for an open source platform, it was not intuitive enough for the likings of the Workforce Velocity team. After viewing a demonstration of DotNetNuke and gathering information on its capabilities, Workforce Velocity decided the best choice for their new Workforce Velocity website was DNN. This choice led the push of their IT team from Linux to .NET to allow for use of the DNN framework.
To effectively market, a dedicated website for the new product would need to be developed. Workforce Velocity did not have the internal resources or expertise available to develop a website up to par with their vision.
“We have a product we are proud of and it is extremely valuable to our sales and company overall.” – Michelle Ventulett, Workforce Velocity
A true collaboration between SOLTECH and Workforce Velocity led to the launch of a website true to the vision of their look and feel as well as desired functionality. Once the development of the initial website was in process, the Workforce Velocity team underwent training of DNN’s Content Management System to gain a better understanding of how to quickly and easily update their content.
