New Hampshire-based Ektron Inc., today added enhanced workflow capabilities to its Web Content Management (WCM) offering.
The new workflow features give managers control over their publishing processes by automating collaboration, management and approval of content assets. Organizations can now add content process control, including tasks management and progress monitoring.
“Web applications including a Website, intranet and extranet need content process control and accountability,” said William Rogers, CEO, Ektron, Inc.
"As more and more knowledge workers are touching content, a tool to govern the multitude of tasks and events associated with Web strategies is essential to maximize the work of all workers. Task management is the solution to bring new levels of accountability and productivity within a content management environment where workers are already updating and managing content," added Rogers.
Ektron’s workflow suite supports an organization’s Website, intranet and extranet maintenance tasks, as well as critical Web-enabled business processes.
Site managers can now assign tasks, automate status, support messaging between users and run reports/statistics on the task or procedure. Archiving and complete history of tasks provides an analysis of the process and procedures resulting in more productivity.
For organizations looking to address accountability and auditing issues associated with content, Ektron CMS300 provides them with real-time task monitoring information.
Multi-Language Web Sites
Ektron’s new suite also enables organizations to easily create and manage multiple-language versions of the same content within one CMS. The workflow capabilities make it easier to manage and control the process of translating content on a Web site.
The tools built into the CMS allow organizations to observe the work of their third-party translation service - assigning priorities and deadlines, tracking progress, and collaborating, all within the CMS. Ektron's CMS ships with three business-user interface languages: English, French and German.
