EF Education First, the world’s largest private education company, was named “Best Education Website” by Sitecore, supplier of web content management systems for more than 27,000 websites. Adoption of the market’s latest tools, such as Sitecore, have allowed EF to maintain its position at the cutting edge of education technology. In managing over 300 site versions in 60 markets and 35 languages, EF harnesses Sitecore’s powerful tools to ensure internal flexibility and maintaining seamless customer experiences.
In choosing EF’s website, Sitecore cited creativity, integration with applications, overall site visitor experience, and ability to educate, inform, and motivate an action. With complexities stemming from using three separate languages (.Net, ASP, and Java), six products, and natural and paid landing pages, EF’s use of Sitecore allowed it to deploy its solutions across all markets with www.ef.com.
