Dieese – Departamento Intersindical de Estatistica e Estudos Socioeconomicos – is a 60 years old non-profit and educational institution linked to worker unions, and recognized as of public interest in 3 levels of government. Our school also offers scholarships of 50% of the monthly fee for all students (mostly coming from working class), or up to 90%, defined according to socio economic criteria and requirements.
Our website has been online since 1996. Because we have a small Communication team, we try to avoid having an extensive workflow for publishing. Thus, the same study that is produced and sent in pdf by email to our partners is published thru a link for download. However, this creates problems for being indexed by search tools, which privilege the content in html, and therefore, for the proper presentation of the institution to the internet, according to its expertise. There are also other technical reasons for not using a content manager, such as the need to integrate the content to our own and more specific indexing systems.
After years of trying to get around the problem without much progress, we found the BuildVu. From the generation of html pages through the tool, we could start to have better visibility in the search tools, without needing to extend the workflow. In addition, we were able to associate each generated page with content sharing tools, what the PDF files did not allow.
Thank very much IDRsolutions for providing a very adequate solution to our problem.
