MAT Pain-Points

  • As trusts grow, they end up with multiple different website suppliers across the MAT.
    • No economy of scale.
    • Lack of central control.
    • Makes staff training difficult and costly.
    • Creates duplication of work.
    • No central support contract – lots of different contracts with different renewal dates / costs and terms / also number of  different contacts.
    • No one company has a strategic handle on TRUST goals and needs from their sites – lack of strategic development.
    • Difficult to manage the Trust brand presence across all school sites and maintain a consistent appearance.
    • Some schools may have excellent sites and others have very poor sites.
  • Sites become out of date, especially as staff members leave and update costs mount.
     
  • Frustration with having to go through the process of building a new site every 5 years.
    • This is very time consuming and costly.
    • Leads to need for retraining and duplication of previous work. 
  • Pressure to “get it right” or suffer additional costs to amend and develop in future. Lack of flexibility to meet changing needs and requirements – amending the site is seen by suppliers as an opportunity to charge for additional work!
     
  • Lack of marketing on websites to drive enquiries for admissions / school staff.
