GlobalSCAPE Introduces New XML-Based Enterprise Content Management System
PublishXML(tm) Offers Businesses a Way to Repurpose Data for
Delivering Up-to-Date Information Through Web Sites, Publications,
PDAs, Cell Phones and Other Formats
SAN ANTONIO --GlobalSCAPE (OTCBB:GSCP - News) today announced the availability
of its PublishXML enterprise content management system.
Content management needs vary greatly across industries and
organizations. PublishXML is designed to meet the requirements
of businesses to deliver consistent, up-to-date information
across multiple channels, automatically.
"Our experience in meeting the Web content management needs of
mid-size organizations resulted in interaction with customers
that required more sophisticated, enterprise class features,"
says GlobalSCAPE President and COO, Randy Poole. "PublishXML
meets the demands of business where the rapid and consistent
delivery of information that is format and device independent
is crucial to their operations. It solves a big problem while
still being implementation friendly, whether customers are
working with service partners or managing it themselves,"
PublishXML delivers powerful features, which include content
repurposing, multi-server content publishing, and customizable
data definitions. In addition, the application supports flexible
templating, configurable user and group access rights, and a
sophisticated XML workflow engine.
PublishXML is targeted for customers ranging from small
businesses to large multinational organizations which exist
in growing markets including finance and banking, healthcare,
technology, media, publishing, manufacturing, higher education
and local, state and federal government.
PublishXML offers the following features for highly effective
Visual and Structured Data Authoring
With PublishXML's visual content authoring interface, what users
see in their editing environment is what they will get when
information is published. Users have the ability to manipulate
the arrangement, size, and look of content with the WYSIWYG
editor. The structured data authoring conforms content to
appear in a predefined structure output such as a press
release. Essential items, such as spell check, are included
with the application.
Personalized Task Management Panel
Customize viewing preferences and manage tasks more efficiently
in a workspace environment best suited to each individual
Multi-Level Workflow/Approval Process
In coordination with the workflow dashboard, workflow modules
that deliver tasks from content creation to archival are an
integral part of PublishXML. Optimize workloads by enabling
users to know exactly what their tasks are and when they are
due. Content can even be expired at a certain time and users
can be notified via email.
Multi-Channel Repurposing of Content
XML, the standard for data transmission and storage, enables
content to be shaped in almost any format imaginable. Enter
content into the system once and make it available in full
HTML, printer friendly HTML, PDF, and WML formats. This also
allows your Web site visitors to get the information they
need in the format they need it. For example, if they need
to print a Web page, they can select the printer friendly
HTML. If they are accessing your Web site with a PDA, then
they can select the Handheld version of the page.
Microsoft Word Integration
Documents in Microsoft Word format are easily integrated
into PublishXML. This feature benefits transition time to
PublishXML since most users are already familiar with
Enable multiple users to collaborate on one piece of content
from anywhere, at anytime. Powerful collaboration features
are an important part of content management.
PublishXML is highly scalable. With the underpinnings built
on XML technologies, content can grow infinitely large and
still be easily maintained and managed by PublishXML.
PublishXML will not only handle large amounts of content,
but will also handle a large array of users as well.
Pricing and Availability
PublishXML is expected to ship in April and is priced at
$25,000 per server. Education, government, and volume
licensing options are available. PublishXML runs on Windows,
Linux, Solaris, BSD or MacOS operating systems using
Microsoft IIS, Apache, Netscape or Zeus Web servers. For
