Cologne, Germany; Boston, USA – August 5, 2011
Content Management AG (CM-AG), a leading developer of web-based applications, has today announced that it will unveil its Reseller Edition and new customization options for CM4all Sites at HostingCon 2011. The premier North American conference and trade show for the hosted services industry will be held in San Diego, California, from August 8 to August 10.
After initially being presented to the public at last year’s HostingCon, CM4all’s premium site building solution has been successfully rolled out in various language versions and markets by OEM partners worldwide. The product, based on a completely revamped CM4all technology and maintaining proven administrative APIs, is available for licensing and has already been deployed in various hardware scenarios ranging from redundant failover solutions to highly scalable cluster solutions in the data centers of OEM partners.
“After launching the new platform, our focus was clearly on enhancing and extending the proven customization options that our global OEM partners have benefited from over the past ten-plus years. Our new options guarantee that all our OEM partners will benefit, whether they are operating under a single brand, leveraging multiple brands or operating a complex multi-tier distribution system via resellers or channel partners,” explains Robert Schovenberg, CEO of CM-AG. “We are truly excited about the future innovations we will launch in the years to come,” he adds.
Dedicated to serving leading telcos, MSOs, ISPs and web-hosting companies worldwide, CM4all Sites was developed as a platform solution that can be adapted and customized to each OEM partner’s very individual needs. The newly released Reseller Edition provides both increased flexibility in overall product customization and added room for the integration of custom content, such as OEM-specific advertisements and video tutorials. By customizing the pre-defined website categories and their related default content, OEM partners can align the product with specific target groups or vertical markets. By licensing CM4all Sites Reseller Edition, OEM partners with a multi-tier distribution system are also able to create a separate GUI and product setup for each of their resellers from within one central installation.
Earlier this year, CM4all introduced Simplified Templates. These templates can be styled with HTML and CSS according to CM-AG’s Simplified Template Guide to complement the built-in selection of fully customizable CSS templates. The Simplified Template concept enables CM-AG’s OEM partners and their resellers to easily extend the template database within the product with specific templates for vertical markets or dedicated customer groups, or alternatively to include these templates within a managed service offering.
These additions are critical for supporting our OEM partners in maximizing new business opportunities and fully leveraging up-selling and cross-selling with CM4all Sites. Nonetheless, CM-AG's widget technology, which allows for convenient drag-and-drop, configuration, and arrangement of all website elements, and the unique WYSIWYG editor, which features superior usability, are already an integral part of every end user account. The built-in widgets range from contact forms through weather forecasts to social media connectivity with Twitter® and Facebook®. CM4all Sites is designed with an open widget API that allows for continuous development of widgets by CM-AG, OEM partners, and external software engineers.
CM4all Sites will be showcased at booth #121 for HostingCon’s international audience.
