Content Management Systems (CMS) are becoming more and more popular. This is mainly due to the fact that they lower development costs and make content generation a lot easier and more efficient than how it was done in the past. With millions of users around the world using CMSs for their website and with the huge communities that support them, there will always be people available to help you if you get stuck while working with it. This is especially true if you use one of the many open source CMSs that are available on the market.
Since there are a lot of people who use them and there is a lot of support available for the administrators/developers, this creates an ideal position for us. A position where we are able to help our customers with their implementations in a way that wasn’t possible before. The large spread of these systems and the way they are coded allows us to create packages of our products in the form of plugins or modules that our customer can, in turn, use to automatically implement our products on their website. After that, all that’s needed is some minor configuration and then they have ReadSpeaker implemented! All in just a few short minutes. This does not only make implementation easier, but it also helps to further reduce implementation costs.
Think about it for a moment. Web agencies often charge a lot, even for the smallest changes. Wouldn’t it be more efficient if you could implement ReadSpeaker yourself in a short amount of time and save that money? Especially when it’s done in such a fashion that anyone could do the installation? Time is money, and if you are using a common CMS, you can save on both.
We currently support a number of CMSs for each of our products. The main ones are Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, while we also have plugins for Moodle and EpiServer. For example, here is a short list of our most recent plugins for the new version of Enterprise Highlighting:
- Drupal 6.x/7.x
- Joomla 1.5
- Joomla 1.6/1.7/2.5/3.0
- WordPress 2.x/3.x
- Sharepoint 2010/2013
These all work out-of-the-box in a vanilla installation of each CMS but may in some cases require a few modifications in order to fit your theme or template.
Are you using a CMS that is not in the list above? Fear not! Custom plugins can be ordered from us if it is an Open Source system that is well documented (and has support for external modules/plugins). Contact us for more information.
