WOBURN, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - Percussion Software, a leading provider of web content management (WCM) software, today announced the launch of LiveFirst, a patent pending technology and methodology for website design and page migration. This patent pending technology allows organizations to import website design and content into the Percussion CMS without having to rebuild from scratch.
Recently named "Hot Vendor for 2013" by Aragon Research, Percussion's new migration tool LiveFirst represents a breakthrough in Web Content Management (WCM) migration. This release provides a combination of technology and methodology that allows customers to migrate an existing site and go live in 1/4 of the time of traditional WCM implementations. Site Importer provides the ability to import all of an organization's website design, content, and site architecture. Design Manager and Design Inspector let users create templates based on existing pages' layout and design.
"Live First is a comprehensive website migration capability" said leading industry analyst Jim Lundy, CEO of Aragon Research. "It allows a website theme to be migrated, not just pages, making it unique in the Web Content Management market."
Added Deidre Diamond, CEO & President: "Percussion is truly committed to lowering the cost of an engaging and modern website that allows marketing to be nimble and drive change quickly to the web. Our LiveFirst technology will now allow businesses who couldn't afford to participate in content marketing the ability to compete and win!"
According to Aberdeen Group's recent report, Content Marketing ROI: Quantifying the Value of the Difference, "As the platform for serving content, the web content management system (CMS) serves as the critical foundation for content marketing... Leaders are 45% more likely than Followers to give Marketing the ability to directly post and update content without the need for IT or site administration support (90% vs. 62%). This capability allows marketing to be more responsive in its content marketing efforts, adding new content to support trending keywords, for example, or replacing under-performing content."
Percussion has an intuitive, visual, drag & drop interface, combined with advanced features like workflow, roles, shared assets, and versioning, to provide advanced web content management (WCM) functionality you need right out of the box. There is no custom development and no expensive service engagements -- just a product that works the way it should.
Percussion will be demonstrating LiveFirst through a webinar on June 25 at 1 PM EDT. To attend, register at www.percussion.com/about/news-and-events/events/webinars/livefirst.
