Vasont Systems Releases Vasont(R) 12.0

New features to leading content management system focus on project management and collaboration for writers and managers

EMIGSVILLE, Pa., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Vasont Systems, a leading provider of content management software and data services, today announced the release of the next major version of their content management system, Vasont(R) 12, that enables users to store multilingual content once for maximum reuse and delivery to multiple channels. This release is available on May 1, 2009 for both the client/server and hosted (SaaS) models.

"Vasont 12 gives users tighter control over their content, enables virtual collaboration, and provides better project tracking and reporting," said Richard Schiding, President of Vasont Systems. "The focus on improving the management of the business process surrounding the content led to significant enhancements that will provide additional time and cost benefits for clients."

Vasont 12 includes these major enhancements:

  • Collaborative Review package provides effective virtual collaboration with colleagues. Internal and external reviewers markup content with changes and comments while seeing other reviewers' feedback simultaneously. Accepted changes automatically update in Vasont, minimizing manual updates.
  • Project Management tracks projects to meet publishing deadlines. The Project Management window provides overall statuses of workflow projects across multiple departments and highlights overdue projects. When needed, users can inquire for specific status information. Gantt charts provide a graphical view of project timelines.
  • Translation package consolidates translation project information in one efficient window. Vasont's Translation Projects window provides tracking and status for each multi-language translation project. Translation coordinators submit projects to multiple vendors for quote or translation. Integrations with translation vendors automate content delivery and status information to/from Vasont.
  • Preview feature provides a styled view of XML content and lowers editorial costs. Vasont's Preview displays content in a styled view to speed up editorial time by making content easy to read. Annotations display in the Preview for easy review and notation.
  • Content Ownership increases content security. Specific pieces of content within a collection are restricted to alterations by its Content Owners while other users can only view it. Content Ownership provides an additional layer of content security.
  • Associate Administrators role provides flexibility to coordinate administrative responsibilities across multiple groups. Vasont's administrative responsibilities (changing content setups, updating user permissions, running utilities) are delegated to Associate Administrators as assigned by the Super Administrator to keep the system operating efficiently across departments.
  • Notifications keep users up-to-date. For users who want to know when critical events happen, Vasont's Notifications alert users when activity occurs with specific variants, workflow tasks or projects, eliminating the need for phone calls or emails.
  • Reusable Workflow Projects eliminate setup time. Users set up Workflow Projects once and reuse them with any content. Processes remain consistent and setup time is saved.
  • Alias Attributes and Valid Values accelerate configurations. Attributes and valid value lists are defined once on content Aliases and used across all related content, promoting accuracy and reducing setup time.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
