Cologne, Germany; Boston, USA – September 20, 2012
Content Management AG, a leading provider of web-based applications and value-added services, is proud to announce that Hostnet recently signed a multi-year OEM partner agreement for CM4all Sites. Founded in 1999, Hostnet is one of the leading hosting providers in the Netherlands, serving more than 165,000 customers and managing 600,000 registered domains.
“After a long and thorough evaluation phase, we selected the CM4all Sites platform for several reasons. First, it’s the most customizable website builder on the market and can be tailored to individual target groups and industries. Additionally, various types of product licenses combined with CM4all’s feature point model enable us to offer attractive and flexible product bundles to all our customers. But most importantly, we believe that thanks to CM4all Sites’ innovative widget concept and its superior usability, our customers will be able to create and update professional desktop and mobile websites with ease,” explains Merijn de Brabander, Business Manager at Hostnet.
CM4all Sites delivers numerous innovations, including an instant setup page, an enhanced WYSIWYG editor, and a comprehensive file browser with an interactive drop zone. Thanks to CM4all’s new widget technology, users at all levels will be able to integrate sophisticated features into their websites ranging from contact forms through weather forecasts to social media connectivity with Facebook® and Google+™. Additionally, CM4all Sites is designed with an open widget API. Combined with the new Widget Developer Network, this enables the integration of third-party services and allows for continuous development of widgets by CM-AG, OEM partners, and external software engineers. Developed with usability in mind, all of these innovations were introduced with the ultimate goal of allowing SMBs and consumers to use the application intuitively, getting them up and running quickly, and saving precious time by avoiding the steep learning curve required by some competitor products. With CM4all Sites, users create a professional looking website within minutes.
“We are pleased to welcome Hostnet to our global OEM network as our first Dutch partner for CM4all Sites. As we look forward to a successful long-term partnership, we are confident that leveraging our platform in various business models will help this successful hosting provider further strengthen its position in this competitive market,” says Robert Schovenberg, CEO of Content Management AG.
In the coming weeks, CM4all Sites will be adapted to Hostnet’s corporate design, installed in Dutch and English-language versions in the company’s data center, and integrated into its system environment.
