What are your biggest website challenges?
Your website is your most important public-facing asset and gives the first impression of your organization.
Presenting your university in the best light is key to attracting and retaining students from all backgrounds and abilities.
With thousands of pages, continually updating content, a wide range of stakeholders, and accessibility challenges, you’ve got your work cut out. Silktide can help.
Thousands of pages to manage
Nobody can be expected to manage tens of thousands of web pages alone. Keeping track of content that changes daily, accessibility challenges, and disparate stakeholders is an insurmountable task.
Unlimited testing capabilities
Silktide reports on your entire web structure, including subdomains and micro-sites. We help you identify and correct issues across website content, marketing, and privacy. You no longer need to be an expert in everything.
Silktide automatically tests your website against all three levels of WCAG 2.1 accessibility legislation, including mobile device testing.
We’ll educate and guide your team toward better accessibility compliance by giving you a comprehensive website testing platform.View web accessibility

Marketing, SEO and advertising challenges
Content is only the first step. Your marketing team demand the very best performance from your website, including well-optimized, highly ranked pages.
Page speed optimization
Making sure images are optimized for size and your pages load quickly should be an important focus for your development and content teams.
Keyword research and backlinks
With Silktide, you’re able to report on keyword rankings, competitors advertising and backlink quality, as well as identify and solve a wide range of technical challenges.View marketing
Time and resource pressure
Managing and optimizing a multi-thousand page website is a huge, seemingly unmanageable task, and often more work that is reasonable for one person to understand. Often, too many users are responsible for web content, resulting in inconsistency in quality across your sites.
Silktide identifies inconsistencies and technical errors throughout your sites. You can streamline and align your content strategy using custom policies, and get tasks broken down into manageable chunks.View prioritization
Disparate tools and processes
Your team may be getting information from a wide range of tools, creating disjointed data. This makes it difficult to find and report on issues or monitor progress toward improvements.
Roles and responsibilities
Silktide gives your staff unlimited access to one single platform, where they get maximum visibility on issues and can easily share information between teams.
Migration and redesign
The migration of web content from one system to another is often an ongoing task. If you’re undergoing a website migration, your to-do list might look like an encyclopedia.
Silktide audits all of your websites and gives you a comprehensive list of pages, documents, links, contact details and technology, making migration more manageable.
