Content Management AG (CM-AG), one of the world's leading developers of Web-based applications, recently gave people something to be excited about for this year's HostingCon. Last Friday they announced that they would take the opportunity to unveil their new Reseller Edition and customization options for CM4all Sites at the event.
It was just last year at HostingCon 2010 that CM4all's premium site building solution was initially presented to the public, and since then it has met with great succes, being brought out in various language versions and markets by OEM partners around the globe. Based on totally overhauled CM4all technology and maintaining proven administrative APIs, the product is available for licensing and is already at work in various hardware scenarios, inlcuding everything from redundant failover solutions to highly scalable cluster solutions in the data centers of OEM partners.
CM4all Sites was initially developed as a platform solution that can be adapted and customized to each OEM partner's individual needs, and it is dedicated to serving leading telcos, MSOs, ISPs and Web-hosting companies worldwide. This new Reseller Edition will provide increased flexibility in overall product customization and it will also add room for the integration of custom content like OEM-specific ads or video tutorials.
The ability to customize pre-defined website categories and their related default content allows OEM partners to align the product with specific target groups or vertical markets. The CM4all Sites Reseller Edition will provide OEM partners with a multi-tier distribution system to create a separate GUI and product setup for each of their resellers from within one central installation.
“After launching the new platform, our focus was clearly on enhancing
and extending the proven customization options that our global OEM
partners have benefited from over the past ten-plus years. Our new
options guarantee that all our OEM partners will benefit, whether they
are operating under a single brand, leveraging multiple brands or
operating a complex multi-tier distribution system via resellers or
channel partners,” explains Robert Schovenberg, CEO of CM-AG. “We are
truly excited about the future innovations we will launch in the years
to come,” he adds.
The announcement of the Reseller Edition comes off the heels of an annoucement by CM4all from earlier this year introducing Simplified Templates, which can by styled with HTML and CSS according to CM-AG's Simplified Template Guide. This allows the templates to complement the built-in slection of fully customizable CSS templates. The concept enables CM-AG's OEM partners and their resellers to easily extend the template database within the product with specific templates for vertical markets or special customer groups; they can also include these templates within a managed service offering.
