I had the opportunity to see Zunch Communications' new blog platform Sympozeum last week. If you're about to install WordPress, sign up for a Blogger
account or integrate another solution on your site, you may just want to hold
off for a few weeks.
Sympozeum is an enterprise level weblog platform (they
will be offering a 'personal' version at the official launch) to help
companies of any size or type share knowledge, build a reputation and receive
feedback. You may be thinking; how is this different from any other blogging
platform? Well, it's not - at least not on the surface. The real power of
Sympozeum is in the features it offers blog administrators. Besides the
fact that you have one of the premier integrated marketing and development teams
in the Web universe standing behind you in Zunch, the functionality even as a
stand-alone product speaks for itself and will be attractive to all bloggers -
both aspiring and established.
The features most appealing from my point of view:
Sympozeum is about sixty days away from public launch but you can sign up to
receive notification of its deployment at
- Search engine friendly: Immensely important to get your blog and all
its content indexed.
- Ease of management: post management and category management are very
intuitive and simple to administer
- Blog Search: what's really lacking in most blog platforms is a viable
search offering, Sympozeum has it.
