A WCMS allows individuals who manage or contribute to websites to create, publish and update content. Since the U of S follows a decentralized website management model with hundreds of web publishers across campus and thousands of pages of web content, consistency of information across the organization is a considerable challenge. To help manage content to ensure information is accurate, relevant, current, consistent and shared among websites, the U of S uses the web content management software Cascade Server by Hannon Hill.

Want refresher training? No problem. We customize the session to your needs. 

In order to begin using the WCMS, to request a demo or to obtain more information about the service, e-mail specific questions to wcms_enquiries@usask.ca
