Campusuite 4.0 is here

Latest update of CMS for schools and colleges now even friendlier, more powerful

October 13, 2008

NEWPORT, KY – Innersync Studio has unveiled its latest version of web content management system software designed specifically for schools and higher education with the latest release of Campusuite 4.0.  With simple, browser-based tools to control web site content, Campusuite 4.0 features a wide range of new and improved functionality in three major areas: extended tools and features, application security and enhanced usability.

"This product evolution ensures that our clients are positioned to accommodate the upcoming trends and techniques that are expected to be demanded in the future and needed today," said Steve Williams, Campusuite's co-founder. "Mindful of the emerging prevalence of Web 2.0 technologies, we're continuously engineering in ease and access for content administrators, publishers and end-users."

Highlights of Campusuite 4.0's enhancements:

  • Content syndication via XML and RSS feeds
  • Mobile/PDA version of key information
  • Web 2.0 features such as easy content tagging
  • Improved interface controls using AJAX
  • "Private" Intranet/Extranet password-protected areas
  • Enhanced browser-based page editing feature:
    - Page layouts
    - Spell checking & Find and Replace
    - Image control

Already implemented at select schools, colleges and universities, Campusuite software enables web site administrators to keep fresh such frequently updated information as news, events, calendars, photos, faculty and staff directories, videos and FAQs. Ready-made, easy-to-use content modules plug into existing web site designs, eliminating the mystery and technical prerequisites for keeping web content current.

Campusuite simplifies the growingly unwieldy process of overall web site management by providing simple web-based tools to content authors, publishers and administrators, who can easily create, share and publish content in a decentralized work-flow environment. Employees closest to the content are afforded greater control of the content with permission-authorized access.

"What makes Campusuite different from other off-the-shelf CMS products is that we've created easy-to-use modules that address the specific needs of school and college web administrators," said Jay Cooper, Marketing Director at Innersync. "Many of the larger, more horizontal CMS packages have functionality and data fields that a school or college would never use."

A practical solution for many departments within an institution where content is constantly changing -- admissions, student activities, sports information, alumni affairs, faculty and staff -- Campusuite enables content authors to easily create and edit their respective pages of their web site.

"A school's web site is becoming increasingly important to many facets of their operations," said Cooper. "Recruiting, athletics, development -- it's their primary public face. Campusuite gives them tools to make their sites more effective, easily. We've found a great deal of interest on the part of many administrators at this conference," added Cooper. "They are hungry for web content solutions that not only improve their whole process, but are easy to implement, as well.
