New Nstein CMS Puts Publishers First
Nstein Technologies, Inc. (www.nstein.com) is giving publishers part of their wish list with its new WCM 4.0 content management system, which provides tools for the creation and management of complex websites and microsites. According to the company, customer feedback was the driving force behind many of the product’s new features.
"Part of our success as a company is listening to the needs of our customers and the market in general," says Nstein president and CEO Luc Filiatreault. "To meet their readers’ needs, publishers have a dizzying array of new dissemination channels that they need to fill with content. The key is to have a development platform that is both nimble and easy to use so you can meet those needs before someone else does."
The new release features a role-based interface for editorial teams that includes the following:
- Multisite and multichannel content management
- Out-of-the-box conversion and importation of content from XML formats
- Role-based configurable editorial dashboards
- Automatic search and association of assets
- On-the-fly content association
- Real-time semantic generation of tags and metadata
- Faceted search
- Search engine optimization toolkit
WCM 4.0 will also integrate with Nstein’s TME and DAM for on-the-fly semantic tagging and association of stories. In addition, its open design means it will work with third-party content modules—such as Facebook, Twitter, forums, blogs, and wikis—as well as other content management systems and repositories.
