City of Boise Selects Percussion Software's Rhythmyx 5.5 ECM

Dec 07, 2004


Percussion Software has announced that the city of Boise, Idaho, has selected the newly released Rhythmyx 5.5 enterprise content management (ECM) system to improve egovernment and enhance its online presence. The city of Boise anticipated tremendous growth in the volume of documents, images, graphics, and Web content for this site and began planning for a CMS in 2002 to ensure that the content volume could be handled in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. The city decided to implement a content management system in an effort to eliminate redundant and out-of-date content and to ensure that Web pages adhere to city policies and mandated accessibility standards. Rhythmyx enables the city's authors to edit content in several different ways: using Word, via a Web form, or by editing the Web page in-line. It also provides authors with two ways to locate content, via the folder structure or by navigating to a specific page.
