We have people in our department who already know how to build a Web site. Why do we need to use RedDot when we already have software we’re familiar with?
By adopting a content management system that is used University-wide, your department has consistent access to experienced Web developers who are intimately familiar with the details necessary to keep your site running and up-to-date. In contrast, by relying on student workers or a variety of unsupported software packages a department is taking a risk with its Web content. If a crackerjack student worker designs your Web site and then graduates, you no longer have anyone who knows how to keep it up to date. Building your department site in RedDot means that there will always be someone on campus to help train your staff in working with the Web site and troubleshoot any problems you might have.
