Telerik has released version 4.3 of its Sitefinity .NET Web content management system. And like we expected, there are more capabilities to support the online customer experience.

One of the Mid-Market Web CMS

Telerik was one of the Web CMS vendors we included in our look at the mid-market content management solution providers. The vendor is working on its customer experience story, but its primary focus has been to solidify its core web content management and e-commerce capabilities.

Sitefinity 4.3 comes with a number of performance improvements that should speed up the page load time of both the front-end website and the back-end CMS. But it also packs some new e-commerce, email marketing and social features. So let's have a look.

Sitefinity 4.3: CXM Updates

Email Campaigns

Telerik has separated the module for email campaigns from the CMS back-end navigation. The editing process has been improved and optimizations were made to both the subscriber and mailing lists.

Need Help Migrating?

Sitefinity 4.3 comes with a migration tool to help you migrate from version 3.7 of the Web CMS, which includes all content, custom fields, URLs and more. Along with the new features, a number of issues with the existing Migration module have been resolved.
