Sigma Kappa Selects GIN to Provide New Colony Websites, GIN Systems, and Facebook Fan Pages
Gainesville, FL, March 22, 2011- Sigma Kappa Sorority has chosen Group Interactive Networks (GIN) to provide each of its new undergraduate chapters with a custom website that interfaces with GIN's web-based members-only organizational tool ("GIN System"), and customized Facebook fan pages for chapters.
Each Sigma Kappa colony will have a dynamic public-facing website with features such as photos, links, files, and rich text. Officers of the website can create new webpages, change existing webpages' photos and text, and add new information all without any previous web experience. The websites are combined with a secure web-based "Members-Only" area that includes unlimited mass text messaging, email listservs, an online calendar, secure file sharing, surveys and polls, announcements, and other tools designed to simplify chapter management and communication.
GIN's Headquarters Communication System will also allow the national organization to post files, announcements, and calendar events directly into the file folders, announcement areas, and calendars used by each chapter. Members can also access their GIN System portal from Facebook or their iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch to stay connected on the go.
A custom fan page for chapters will allow each to enhance its presence in Facebook. With graphics that reflect Sigma Kappa's established branding, these custom pages will allow chapters to more easily share information with groups outside of their chapter, including parents, potential members, and university professionals.
"Working with GIN has been a pleasure. The websites developed for our new chapters are professional and very easy to manage. The GIN System itself has made the daily operations easier with a multitude of features like file storage, points management and sending mass text messages. GIN's experience with social media in all its various forms has been very helpful to our organization," said Meaghan Miller Thul, director of colonies and new chapters for Sigma Kappa.
"We are thrilled to bring GIN Systems to Sigma Kappa colonies," said Ethan Fieldman, GIN's President. "We know these tools eliminate the headaches associated with chapter communications and organization, and they can really help new chapters get to know one another and share key information right from the start. Our websites and Fan pages will provide another avenue for promoting the colony and sharing their stories and we look forward to seeing their success."
