The University of Hull digitally transformed its website with Zengenti’s flagship CMS Contensis in 2016, when its existing system could not change and adapt with the times as they did. Their digital team recognised the need to scale up and offer better digital experiences for their staff and students.

With Contensis there is a lot of great functionality out of the box. The SaaS product is constantly being updated with new features usable over the cloud. We like that Contensis works with many large enterprises and leading universities across the UK, so it understands our needs and requirements.

The move to Contensis 6 years ago has helped and supported the University of Hull team to develop a completely new website, which is sleek and modern by design. We’re pleased it continues to meet the expectations of their existing and prospective students. And the requirements of the developers and content editors working at the university, with each new release.
