The Challenge

Pomeranian Medical University in Szczecin (PUM) is a public, higher education institution with a medical profile. It conducts didactic, R&D and therapeutic activities and has earned a number of awards and distinctions in medicine. In 2009, Squiz's advanced MySource Matrix web system was implemented as part of policy of improving service quality and openness to people and new backgrounds.

The main reasons for the actions taken were the following:
- Introduce a modern WWW Internet communication medium
- Refresh page layout
- Facilitate web pages editing process by enhancing editing capabilities while reducing editor’s workload
- Use open-source software
- Ensure compliance with the requirements of Polish law
- Invest in a flexible tool with great configuration capabilities
- Select software that is constantly developed by its creators (security and new opportunities in the future)

The main reasons for the new website project:

- To select a reliable, enterprise-class product used by e.g. government institutions
- To invest in a flexible tool with many configuration options
- To simplify the publishing process
- To enhance editing options
- To comply with RWD (Responsive Web Design) requirements and WCAG 2.0 AA standard (web page accessibility for persons with disabilities)

The Solution

Squiz has implemented a web system in line with PUM’s requirements. The analysis and pre-implementation preparation process and the implementation itself have been carried out as per the timeline. The exchange of information between the client and Squiz has been done in a friendly manner and corresponded to the assumptions of response and implementation time of agreed tasks.

Our cooperation was smooth. We were particularly pleased with:
- High competencies of Squiz employees
- Thorough (analytical) approach to submitted subjects/tasks
- Quick communication on queries before and during implementation
- Foreseeing the effects of discussed IT solutions

The outcome of the project was PUM’s web portal that meets university’s requirements and complies with the requisites for public institutions (Polish law). Noticeable, positive users’ feedback on the new design and marked improvement of work performed by PUM’s editors.
