CrownPeak Powers Web Site Management 2.0

November 10, 2006; 06:35 AM

CrownPeak (http://www.crownpeak.com/), the company defining the future of content management, today announced it is empowering customers to manage the flow of content from creation through publication to any Web 2.0 interface (e.g. blog, RSS, wiki, AJAX, etc.).

* Web Site Management 2.0 is an easy, cost-effective and powerful way for customers to use CrownPeak CMS to publish multiple forms of content from a single source for their end users to consume however they'd like: "create once, publish many."

* A Content Management System (CMS) allows non-technical users to make changes to an existing Web site with little or no training. Delivered as a software service (SaaS), CrownPeak's CMS is built from the ground up to enable integration with other SaaS products and/or content feeds such as PRNewswire, Reuters or any XML syndicated feed. Contrast this with traditional software products that need extensive integration work to enable even simple connections.

* CrownPeak CMS offers organizations a flexible, award-winning interface with powerful content management, workflow, and publishing features. This combination provides a powerful way to centralize single publishing tasks into multiple outputs with one click.

Now customers can deploy CrownPeak's Web Site Management 2.0 capabilities across any of their Web properties from a single interface to manage their overall site in a more effective way. This also provides end users with more ways to digest content. - Blogs: Many customers utilize CrownPeak CMS to drive corporate blogs. Using CrownPeak, customers can gain greater control over their corporate blogs by employing workflow, approvals and archiving over both postings and comments. Most blogging tools today lack the workflow or approvals associated with content that is published or comments posted. - RSS and Atom Feeds: Today, almost every customer posts RSS feeds as part of its site content. With Web Site Management 2.0, CrownPeak customers now have multiple choices when utilizing RSS as part of their communication strategy: CMS can publish these feeds, or RSS feeds can be automatically generated out of the search engine. In this instance, people can subscribe to RSS feeds of specific queries to the Web site. - PodCasts/Video/Audio: CrownPeak CMS facilitates the publishing of digital assets such as audio and video files, and simplifies the process by which a customer publishes the XML associated with the Podcast RSS feed. As a result, users can easily subscribe to the podcast. As with all digital assets, all versions are kept, so customers have a complete and centralized archive of all the podcasts that are issued. - Social Networking: Content is more than outbound communication these days -- it's also inbound. CrownPeak enables customers to empower their Web site users to post comments back to blogs, or even pull content or data directly into the CMS via email and/or forms posted out on the Web site. Features can be easily deployed by the customer, including the ability to "tag" content, "rate this article" or "comment on this page."

Quotes, attributable to Jim Howard, CEO of CrownPeak

  * "CrownPeak is dedicated to helping our customers succeed in leveraging
    new capabilities for digital marketing. Whether it's integrating Web
    2.0 features -- or mashing up software-as-a-service capabilities such
    as content management, email campaign management and web analytics --
    we help customers manage their Web sites in a more effective way."

  * "The term 'Web 2.0,' coined in 2004 by Tim O'Reilly in collaboration
    with MediaLive International, describes the evolution of the Web to
    become a more open, flexible, and interconnected platform. While the
    term is being hyped by some companies -- there is no doubt there is a
    sea change occurring in the way Web sites are being managed."

  * "When you combine new applications that people are developing for their
    sites -- RSS Feeds, wikis, blogs, social networking features and
    multimedia -- with new methods of online marketing such as search
    engine marketing, email campaign management and viral marketing, one
    thing is clear: Web 2.0 features enable the collaboration of content."
