Vignette announced availability of a new version of its Vignette Content Management (VCM) product, claiming significant usability features that streamline the content contribution process and enable organizations to deliver richer web experiences.
It said VCM now features personalized and customizable start pages for content contributors, which reduces the amount of time and steps required to publish or update content.
In-context editing uses the web site itself as the management interface to create and modify content, and enables entire pages to be replicated for use anywhere within the site. Vignette said a more efficient publishing process means organizations can accelerate content to market and deliver more relevant online experiences that reinforce the brand, extend customer relationships and provide new channels for growth.
As well as a streamlined interface and enhanced presentation management, it said the new suite also sees the addition of new Ajax-based content components to enable users to find what they are looking for faster.
Vignette is going through a turbulent time. It said earlier this month that it expects third-quarter revenue to fall 10% to a range of $42m to $44m, well down on the $46m to $50m it had predicted in July. CEO Mike Aviles said the company had a difficult quarter, and strong services revenue was more than offset by disappointing license revenue.
