GlobalSCAPE Launches WCM System Designed for Small to Medium-Sized Businesses

Jan 14, 2003


GlobalSCAPE, the maker of the popular file transfer application, CuteFTP,  has launched a new Web content management system, PureCMS, intended to allow users of all skill levels to update their organization's Web site content. PureCMS is Web-based and Windows-like to provide a familiar interface.  Users access it from a browser, it runs on a server with Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS), and it can publish to any Web server.  Non-technical users simply browse to a copy of their organization's Web site on the PureCMS staging server, click the page they want to edit, login and make textual or graphic changes on screen. They can even copy and paste content into the Web page from Windows applications such as Microsoft Word.  Once proposed changes are saved, that individual's team leader is notified of pending activity via email.  They are able to visually compare proposed changes to the previous version, approve, and publish, or schedule for publishing, literally in seconds. Key features of PureCMS include: access control via workgroup-level administration of roles and responsibilities; editorial workflow, including e-mail notification of pending activity; visual comparison of proposed changes to previous version for rapid decision making ability; and templates for creating new Web pages and support for common development tools such as Microsoft Front Page or Macromedia Dreamweaver. PureCMS is available immediately from GlobalSCAPE based on a tiered, per-user license basis.  Pricing begins at $350 per user and is available for 3,10, 20 and unlimited users.  For more information visit the GlobalSCAPE Web site at
