Sitefinity is a robust CMS that is extremely versatile and easily scalable. Enterprise-level companies are a great fit for Sitefinity. Based in ASP.NET technology, Sitefinity CMS is a flexible content management platform that is widely used for the construction and management of commercial websites, intranets, community portals, etc. The CMS is designed to make managing website content a cinch for non-technical users. For the more technical user, Sitefinity provides for a wide array of custom- developed options.
Sitefinity offers the following standard features:
Word-like Editor – Sitefinity’s Word-like text editor allows you to easily edit content without any HTML knowledge.
Videos, Images and Documents Manager – Content editors no longer need assistance from the IT department to place banners and videos on the website. Uploading images and documents is as easy as saving them to the desktop. Video content can be quickly uploaded to Sitefinity CMS and played through the integrated video player. Also, thanks to the Sitefinity image wizard you can control how the image galleries will be displayed on the pages.The Sitefinity Document and Images manager allows users to make batch uploads and upload many images and files at once to save time. In addition to this, Images & Documents module support upload of zip files, which can contain hundreds of images and will be unzipped automatically by Sitefinity, once uploaded.
Search – Sitefinity offers an advanced search service that allows you to quickly and easily find information managed by the CMS. The search indexes allow you to define which parts of the site are being searched and how the search results are displayed. Additionally, by using the search content authors can instantly find where certain keywords are used on the website and quickly and efficiently update content.
Online Administration – The CMS can be completely managed through a web browser – end-users can upload files as well as manage page content and organization online.
Workflow Processes – Do you have multiple authors and editors who contribute content simultaneously? Not a problem. By defining a workflow process you can make sure content will be properly reviewed and approved before going live. A powerful workflow system guarantees the quality of the published content, ensures accountability, and facilitates the cooperation between your editors. Workflow can be enforced on content or page level and can be easily turned off when you decide you no longer need it.
Templates – A template determines the layout of your webpage and the way content elements are organized. With Sitefinity we offer a set of ready-to-use website templates to help you set up your site quickly, but you can also create your own templates. Additionally, templates allow you to easily make changes across different pages, and even across the whole site. You can apply changes to a group of pages, which are using the same template by simply editing the template. For example, if you want to update your company logo which is displayed on 1000 pages, you’ll only need to edit the template, instead of going through each individual page.
Integration with Third Party Systems – Integrating your website with marketing systems, line of business applications, CRM systems, notification services, mail clients, etc. is of critical necessity for improving your business processes. Sitefinity’s scalable and open architecture enables us to easily tie the CMS with existing systems.
Multi-Lingual Sites – With Sitefinity, it’s easy to create and maintain content in multiple languages. You can prepare a content block in one language and then create mirror versions for the other languages. In Sitefinity you won’t need to create separate pages for each language, as all of the language versions will be associated with the same page. Additionally, when creating content in different languages you can take advantage of the inline spell-checker, which has more than 10 built in language dictionaries and the option to add custom ones.The Sitefinity User Interface can also be localized in different languages. If your content editors are based in different countries, they would be able to see the labels, tool tips, error messages and buttons in their own language.
