OmniUpdate, a longtime partner in higher education website development and vendor for OUCampus content management, came to Kanner Kreative looking for a more user-friendly, intuitively-architected solution for their support website. Through various methods of gathering user feedback and working with OmniUpdate support staff, the solution resulted in a more intuitive navigation structure and website architecture.
