Cologne, Germany; Boston, USA – September 5, 2011
Content Management AG (CM-AG), a leading developer of web-based applications, is proud to announce that ICONZ has successfully launched CM4all Sites through its brand Freeparking, a New Zealand market leader in domain name registration, e-mail and website hosting services. Marketed under the product name “CreateASite” four different website plans are available for yearly fees starting at NZ$299. Since its founding in 1992, ICONZ has built a reputation as the leading hosting and connectivity company of its kind in New Zealand. New Zealand’s government, corporate and SME sectors all rely on ICONZ's comprehensive portfolio of managed hosting, security and connectivity services.
“As a company dedicated to excellence, we evaluated several site builders on the market to find the best. With its unique usability features, expandable widget catalog, template customization options and OEM readiness, we believe CM4all Sites is the right solution for providing our customers with the most advanced DIY website builder available today,” explains Maria Brosnan, Business Manager at Freeparking.
CM4all Sites’ Instant Setup Page gets users up and running in seconds by providing them with a complete pre-configured website. They also benefit from CM-AG's innovative widget technology, which allows for convenient drag & drop, configuration, and arrangement of all website elements. Built-in widgets range from contact forms through weather forecasts to social media connectivity with Twitter® and Facebook®. Users interested in e-commerce can leverage the shop widget to set up their own online shop and integrate it into their website. To guarantee an always up-to-date range of features, CM4all Sites comes with an open widget API that enables the integration of third-party services and allows for continuous development of widgets by CM-AG, OEM partners, and external software engineers.
For improved usability, a unique WYSIWYG editor provides full drag & drop functionality and allows for direct editing without any pop-ups. The improved template model enables users to fully individualize the included set of CSS templates by editing all colors and fonts as well as adding their own logos and images. A comprehensive file browser with an interactive drop zone accelerates uploading to the user's webspace and greatly simplifies file management.
“We are excited to see that our first OEM partner in New Zealand has successfully integrated CM4all Sites into its comprehensive range of products. With our premium website building solution, both novice and advanced users will find the right tools to realize their very own vision of a professional website with ease,” states Robert Schovenberg, CEO of CM-AG.
The user interface of the English-language version of CM4all Sites was adapted to Freeparking’s corporate design, and the software was installed in the company's data center. CM-AG safeguards the software’s availability with 24/7 support and continuously updates both the operating system and the software application.
