the latest version of its mid-market Web content management system.
PureCMS is a full-featured Web content management system (WCM),
which enables non-technical teams to create, edit and manage Web
site content visually without using hypertext markup language
(HTML), while ensuring Web site administrators have full control
over access, usage and publishing rights. PureCMS solves the
"Webmaster bottleneck" most organizations with active Web sites
face at some point due to over-reliance on technical personnel.
PureCMS 3.0 supports customization of complex workflow and
approval processes, automates the management of a site's
navigation, provides granular administrative control, expands
the use of templates, and enables multi-server publishing for
greater productivity and improved Web site management.

"Our experience meeting the content management needs of mid-size
organizations resulted in interaction with customers that required
more sophisticated capabilities," said GlobalSCAPE President and
COO, Randy Poole. "PureCMS 3.0 meets market demand for
customizable, automated, and broader-reaching processes, which
create more effective Web sites and businesses," continued Poole.
"At Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA),
our challenge was implementing an effective Web content management
platform that would work with our existing infrastructure and
provide a streamlined process for updating rapidly changing
information on our Web site, critical to public transportation
in our region," said Julie Ann Schmanek, SEPTA Communications
Liaison, Public and Government Affairs. "GlobalSCAPE and PureCMS
not only achieved our goals, but provided exceptional service and
guidance during the entire implementation process. We couldn't be
happier," continued Schmanek.
PureCMS is Web-based and Windows®-like, installs on a staging
server running Microsoft Internet Information Services® (IIS)
and can publish to any Web server platform. Non-technical users
simply browse to a copy of their organization's Web site hosted
on the PureCMS staging server, login, click the page they want
to edit and make changes on screen. Once proposed changes are
saved, the next individual in the approval process is notified
via e-mail and can approve, deny or request changes to pending
activity. Once final approval has been received, changes can be
published immediately or scheduled for a specific time.
