Isobar and Accordant, linked by Isobar, have announced today they are partnering to lead the digital transformation of the University of Canberra, after winning a competitive pitch. In the first joint project since Accordant joined the Isobar Group in March, the teams will draw on their extensive network capabilities for the University of Canberra’s Digital Student Journey project. The outcomes will enhance the online student experience through advanced digital engagement, conversion and retention strategies, while supporting students throughout their academic life and beyond.
The platform will position the University of Canberra as one of Australia’s most digitally progressive tertiary institutions. The personalisation and optimisation of a student’s digital touch points will provide a contextual, intuitive and student-centric experience by delivering relevant information to individuals over the course of their engagement with the University. The program will see Isobar and Accordant, Linked by Isobar, partner with Adobe to deliver their largest joint project to date on the Adobe Experience Cloud.
Isobar is a market leader in the use of the Adobe Experience Cloud, delivering a single cohesive experience-based platform using Adobe Experience Manager (AEM), accessible across all digital devices and seamlessly integrated with relevant University of Canberra systems. The development will also incorporate the use of Adobe’s Audience Manager, Analytics and Target functions.
