Ephox Announces New Integration with EPiServer CMS

PALO ALTO, Calif. — April 7, 2010 — Ephox, a leading provider of software for improving web content management (WCM), today announced a new integration with EPiServer, the world’s fastest growing provider of WCM, online community and e-commerce platforms. The new integration of Ephox EditLive! with EPiServer CMS will bring rich, intuitive online authoring capabilities to EPiServer customers, enhancing business user productivity and improving web site quality.

“This integration provides great features to professional and occasional editors who use EPiServer CMS,” said Allan Thraen, senior solution architect for EPiServer. “Editors at all levels have come to expect desktop-like functionality when editing web content. EditLive!, which we view as one of the best WYSIWYG editors in the market, is a perfect fit with a familiar feel, nice usability and an excellent accessibility checker.”

The latest version of EditLive! includes several features that enable content creators to work together more efficiently and effectively. Templating functionality gives content administrators the ability to create reusable content templates for consistent web site styles and standards that can be employed by business users. For improved collaboration, context-based commenting capabilities enable users to comment directly on any text or object in an online document, and track conversations related to specific comments. As the only web-based editor that supports Autosave, EditLive! preserves content even if the web browser crashes or the server session times out. Additional features include broken hyperlink reporting, Auto-Correct, the ability to import Word documents, and Thesaurus.

“Through the use of its guiding principle, ‘power through simplicity,’ EPiServer has been helping its customers create unique and engaging websites. Our Rich Text Editor, EditLive!, was created on similar principles,” said Andrew Roberts, CEO of Ephox. “Now, businesses can take advantage of the power of the EPiServer CMS, while enabling their non-technical users to easily and quickly create compelling web content. This integration provides the best of both worlds.”


EditLive! for EPiServer is available immediately and can be downloaded at http://editlive.com/episerver.
