Good reasons for choosing Synkron Via

Intuitive interface

Implementing a new IT-system in a large company or organization with several departments will often entail an increase in the need for educating the parts involved. With Synkron Via the need for educating users is minimal and they can quickly start concentrating on producing good and useful content. This is due to the fact that Synkron Via is built on a completely new type of interface, which makes it easier for an editor to produce and edit content. The system is using principles that most users will probably know from common software and operating systems. Content is organized logically in folders with a drag-and-drop function, the system allows keyboard shortcuts and the editor is similar to that in Microsoft Word.

The system publishes several sites in several languages through several channels

The administration of several sites - for example campaigns, languages or editions and to several channels, can entail an immense amount of manual work in other systems. In Synkron Via content is handled in multiple dimensions. A single document in the system can for instance contain several versions and be presented in multiple channels simultaneously. Due to this, it is possible to make an original text as well as an easy-reading version in one single procedure. Publishing to international sites and cross-media publishing is therefore made a lot more efficient. Synkron Via is able to contain several sites which means that the maintenance of the organization's online activies can be handled with the same tools.

International sites

When editors in international companies works with different time zones, with different character sets and keyboards and the visitors also comes from different time zones and read different languages - then the CMS makes demands. The system keeps track on where in the world the different editors are located, so all dates and times are converted from the editor's local time to GMT. it does therefore not matter, in which time zone the editor stays or where the server is located. Synkron Via is controling all this. Synkron Via is also controlling the international character sets, so it never becomes a problem to manage content in other languages.

Publish content automatically

The automatic processes in Synkron Via makes it possible to publish content without the editor having to think about how and where it should be published. Thereby it is possible for a municipality to delegate the editorial tasks to contributors from each and every administration without losing the centralized control.

An investment in Synkron Via will therefore provide for a lot of measurable advantages, like improved  routines and more simple processes with regard to the decentralizing of tasks and responsibility.

Synkron Via employs a range of widespread technologies such as Microsoft .NET and open standards such as XML, XSLT and web services. This makes the task of expanding the system with new modules  or integrating it with other business systems much easier, whether it pertains to ERP, CRM, ESDH or other systems. Synkron Via is implemented in Microsoft .NET and developers have access to the CMS-framework, which contains classes and methods to expand the system – fx. By developing new modules.
