28th April 2015 -Northumbria Students’ Union (NSU) has appointed Membership Solutions Ltd (MSL) as the preferred bidder for their New Digital Platform project which will encompass website design and build, elections, clubs and societies, e-commerce and student messaging facilities.
28th April 2015 - MSL is delighted to have been selected to work with NSU leaders as they implement a new digital platform to support their student awareness, engagement and participation objectives as well as strengthening their relationships with prospective students and parents, the general public and alumni.
NSU has a presence on both Northumbria University campuses in Newcastle upon Tyne, as well as the university’s London Campus. It supports over 100 societies engaging more than 4000 students, operates award winning bars and venues and provides vital services for students ranging from academic representation to CV enhancing volunteer opportunities.
The new digital presence will replace the current website and content management system and is just one element of a full rebranding project NSU is undertaking. NSU’s decision to move to an MSL provided platform, which NSU will manage themselves, forms a significant part of their modernisation programme to transform their student services.
Kerry Tudor, Marketing Manager at Northumbria Students’ Union, commented, “The redevelopment of our website and digital communications is key to achieving many of our long term goals, as we aim to continually make a positive impact on the lives of our students. This is a significant project and we are extremely excited to be working with the team at MSL and maximising the potential in their extensive web platform provision. We were impressed by the passion for the student experience and attention to detail in MSL’s proposal and we can’t wait to see our ideas come to fruition.”
Colin Watson, CEO of Membership Solutions Ltd, added, “We are delighted to have been chosen to work with Northumbria Students’ Union on this important project. Their website and online engagement facilities are vital to maximising participation in all student activities, enhancing the student journey from fresher to graduation and ensuring a secure commercial future for the union. We are fully committed to helping NSU achieve all these objectives.”
