PaperThin, Inc., a mid-market content management system vendor, has announced that several non-profit organizations and associations have recently selected CommonSpot Content Server to manage their Internet, intranet, and extranet sites. New customers in the non-profit and association sectors include Academy for Education Development (Washington, D.C.), American Academy of Pediatrics (Elk Grove Village, Ill.), American Society for Engineering Education (Washington, D.C.), Association of Public Television Stations (Washington, D.C.), Memphis Arts Council (Memphis, Tenn.) and United Way of the MidSouth (Memphis, Tenn.).
In developing their new Web initiatives, several of these organizations have engaged PaperThin partners including Beaconfire Consulting (Washington, D.C.), Edgewater Technology (Wakefield, Mass.), Fig Leaf Software (Washington, D.C.), Fusion Productions (Webster, N.Y.), and Ringger (Memphis, Tenn.) to redesign and build their new sites, which the organizations will then maintain themselves.
Using CommonSpot's features, PaperThin partners are able to build dynamic Web sites quickly. Deploying standard features like templates and style sheets allows a designer to maintain a consistent look and feel throughout the site. Once the site has been built, content owners, rather than in-house Web developers or outside consultants, can create and publish dynamic, personalized Web content within a controlled environment. No special technical knowledge is required, and authors can publish documents, images, PDFs, video clips, and other content using a wizards-based interface.
