Contensis has powered the website of King’s College London (KCL) since 2010. In that time the higher education sector has changed dramatically – along with the needs of the university’s stakeholders, staff and students. But, as the university has evolved, so has Contensis, allowing the team at King’s to use the latest digital tools and techniques without having to go through a lengthy and expensive replatform.

KCL's whole search offering now runs entirely off the Contensis Search API.

“Now we’re using the cloud platform, we are able to run a modern service that is much more stable and higher performing. This frees our team up to develop and improve, rather than just keeping the sites running.”
