GMV implements a new platform to develop the websites of Barcelona University’s faculties

The project started with the general implementation of the solution and the Pharmacy Faculty’s website

The new platform will help to optimise Barcelona University’s technological resources, thereby making possible significant cost savings

Barcelona University has implemented, in conjunction with GMV, a new platform for the development of websites for its faculties, aligning its brand image in all of its faculties and responding to the needs of its different users’ groups.

The objective pursued by the university with this new project is to simplify, unify and optimise processes and procedures, which, in the medium term, will translate into savings both in terms of costs and technological resources. The initial implementation of the Pharmacy Faculty’s website will be used to evaluate whether the new platform fits in with the websites of the remaining faculties and with the corporate services of the Barcelona University.

As a new feature for Barcelona University, GMV has used a responsive web design so that the newly developed websites can be accessed from any mobile device and browser, thereby optimising the user’s experience. In addition, integrations have been carried out with different applications of Academic Management, Research Management, Personnel Directory and Single Sign-On of Barcelona University.

José María Legido, Director of GMV’s North East office, stated that “we are implementing GMV’s most innovative solutions in the new platform in response to our client’s needs” since “achieving a global vision, in order to integrate all of the new websites of the faculties and their different departments, is a multidimensional and multidisciplinary challenge that has required decisiveness and strategic vision to foster a technological change in Barcelona University in which we are playing our part.”
