Port City Web Partners With Ektron to Deliver Cutting Edge CMS Solutions
Port City Web, LLC (www.PortCityWeb.com), an award-winning Web site design and development firm specializing in business Web site design and development, eCommerce, SEO and content management systems, today announced that it has partnered with Ektron, a technology and market leader in Web content management software. The partnership will extend Port City Web's offering of business-grade, 3rd party applications that the company integrates into business Web sites.
Ektron CMS400.NET content management system allows any business user to easily add and modify Web site content and take advantage of innovative features such as social networking, RSS feeds, Web alerts, blogging, enterprise search, document management functions, eCommerce and more. By integrating Ektron's CMS into Port City Web's customer Web sites, development and content management production is streamlined for the end users, and businesses can invest in tools which offer value across their entire organization. Ektron CMS400.NET provides an all-in-one platform for rapidly creating, deploying and managing interactive Web, extranet and intranet sites and eliminates the need for businesses to invest in multiple solutions, in-house development staff and other Web editing tools.
Although the partnership has been formalized, the relationship between Port City Web and Ektron has been ongoing for almost 2 years. During Port City Web's re-branding and re-designing of Service Credit Union's corporate Web site, Ektron's CMS400.NET was selected to manage the credit union's site. Port City Web not only re-designed the credit union's Web site, but also developed the new Web site and implemented the Ektron content management system into the new Service Credit Union Web site. "Finalizing the partnership was more of a formality, something we had planned to do after seeing how powerful a tool it was for managing Web sites," said Erik Crago, President & CEO of Port City Web. "Ektron has so many powerful features, but the search engine is my favorite," noted Crago. "Google has taught people to search for what they're looking for, and it's no different when people visit a Web site. If they don't find what they're looking for, they leave -- period. Ektron's built-in search engine is the best I've seen in a CMS, and it will keep users on the Web site, and that's huge," said Crago.
Since its founding in 1998 Ektron has been committed to providing affordable Web content management and authoring solutions. Ektron CMS400.NET empowers non-technical business users by providing an intuitive user interface for managing their Web site's content and messaging. Ektron has a complete set of social networking tools and fully supports all Web 2.0 functionality. An open API provides web designers and developers all the tools to extend Ektron's solution. Headquartered in Nashua, N.H., Ektron has more than 20,000 customer implementations worldwide, including NASA, Kodak and Johnson & Johnson. For more information visit: http://www.ektron.com.
