Ektron Inc., a provider of Web content management and authoring software, has announced enhancements to its content management solution that are designed to give organizations control over their workflow processes. The workflow suite is intended to automate the collaboration, management, and approval of content. Organizations can add content process control, which includes assigning tasks, monitoring progress, and managing all content centric processes.
Ektron's workflow suite supports an organization's Web site, intranet and extranet maintenance tasks, as well as Web-enabled business processes. Site managers including Webmasters, marketing and HR managers can assign tasks, automate status, support messaging between users, and run reports/statistics on the task or procedure. Ektron's new suite also enables organizations to create and manage multiple-language versions of the same content within one CMS. The workflow capabilities make it easier to manage and control the process of translating content on a Web site. The tools built into the CMS allow organizations to observe the work of their third-party translation service, assigning priorities and deadlines, tracking progress, and collaborating, from within the CMS. Ektron's CMS ships with three business-user interface languages: English, French, and German.
