Fast delivery and flexibility is key to launch of new charity website by netXtra

The Sutton Trust, a self-funding charity aimed at combating educational inequality and preventing the subsequent waste of talent amongst young people, is celebrating the launch of its newly redeveloped website - Given the remit of fast turnaround and improved website usability, and all on a limited budget, the new site was perfectly suited to the Suffolk based website development company, netXtra’s Xpress rapid delivery website solution.

As a result of the recent launch, The Sutton Trust now have a more effective and branded platform in which to leverage the organisation’s charitable services and underlying ethos of promoting social mobility through education. Additionally, netXtra’s website content management system Xanadu ensures that The Sutton Trust staff can easily manage site content instantaneously, thereby removing their dependency upon external agencies who could take several days to make simple and routine updates.

The new website has already attracted positive comments from regular visitors, who include school teachers, students, parents and government agencies.

Newly improved areas on the website include pages detailing the trust’s project work with students at schools and universities, and an enhanced area dedicated to The Sutton Trust’s Summer Schools initiative. Offering detailed information on various placement opportunities, this much improved feature of the website also provides Sutton Trust staff with the flexibility to more effectively manage summer school applications. Furthermore, visitors can now also search, filter and review the many research reports and specialist studies that have been commissioned in response to specific issues or events.

Laura Sparshot, who manages the Sutton Trust’s website, said “We needed an updated site that could be managed internally. The new website by netXtra does just that and was delivered on time and within budget. We are very pleased with the results.”
