GlobalSCAPE Announces Availability of PureCMS 2.0
Sensible Content Management Solution Eliminates "Web Master Bottleneck" and Enables Non-Technical Team Members to Update and Manage More Effective Web Sites
SAN ANTONIO -- GlobalSCAPE (OTCBB:GSCP - News) Monday announced the availability of PureCMS 2.0, the Web Content Management system that everyone can use. PureCMS 2.0 empowers organizations to share responsibility for Web site content management with non-technical team members, provides security and control for multiple Web sites from the same interface, and enables workflow for highly effective change management. PureCMS 2.0 demonstrates GlobalSCAPE's continuing commitment to respond to customer needs with powerful solutions, which are affordable and easy to use.
"Today's companies are demanding scalable Web Content Management systems that can deploy quickly, don't require excessive user or administrator training, and most importantly, demonstrate a rapid return on investment," says GlobalSCAPE President and COO, Sandra Christal. "Version 2.0 can be installed in 10 minutes, is rapidly adopted by end users and contains the features that small-to-mid-size organizations need most," continued Christal.
PureCMS is Web-based and Windows®-like, so it's familiar. Users access the tool from a browser, it runs on a server with Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) and it can publish to any Web server. Non-technical users simply browse to a copy of their organization's Web site hosted on the PureCMS staging server, click the page they want to edit, login and make textual or graphic changes on screen. They can even copy and paste content into the Web page from Windows applications such as Microsoft Word or Excel. Once proposed changes are saved, that individual's team leader is notified of pending activity via e-mail. They are able to compare proposed changes to the previous version, approve, and publish, or schedule for publishing, literally in seconds. PureCMS customers include local, state and federal government, finance and banking, healthcare, higher education, small-to-medium size businesses and large multinational organizations.
David Barton, Systems Analyst at AAA Cincinnati, stated, "I wanted a sensible, easy-to-use content management system, something that could be up and running in a very short time. I found exactly what I was looking for in PureCMS."
PureCMS 2.0 offers a comprehensive solution for managing content-rich Web sites and includes the following new features:
Extensive Web Page Editor. Update existing pages or create new ones with ease using the enhanced WYSIWYG editor. The editor includes a Styles drop down list that references your own style sheets so you can quickly format and edit pages. Easily add forms, special characters, tables, images and hyperlinks. Cut, copy, paste, and check spelling just like you would in your favorite word processor.
Docucomp® Document Comparison with Revision Marks. Quickly identify changes to old and new versions of a Web page. Changes are highlighted and color-coded to speed up the approval process. You can also compare pages side-by-side for graphic changes and visual impact.
Multiple Site Support. Manage Internet, Intranet and different business division Web sites on the same system. Permissions can be configured to allow editing on a single Web site or several sites.
Enhanced Publishing Permissions. Share the responsibility for publishing with other team members, users, group leaders, and administrators, or restrict the ability to publish to one Webmaster.
