CoVia Introduces Vertical Community Portal Solution

CoVia announced the general availability of Vortal, the newest addition to CoVia’s suite of enterprise portal solutions. CoVia Vortal enables companies to quickly create industry specific, personalized portals that can be entirely managed by non-technical users who can quickly produce, update and sustain fresh, relative content for any targeted community – all without IT support. Supporting such features as self-registration and password protected access, Vortal enables any organization to add “MyOrganization”-like functionality to their publicly facing web sites in less than 30 days. Using iChannel content syndication and delivery technology, Vortal delivers organization and industry specific news content and information directly to targeted users desktops and enables them to customize their view to suit their particular objectives and interests. Organizations can intersperse company content with syndicated news feeds included with the Vortal application to produce a robust information destination for customers, prospects and partners. Since Vortal also uses many self-service technologies developed as part of the InfoPortal platform, managing and updating the site can be done by anyone capable of operating a web browser. No specific experience or knowledge of XML, HTML or other programming languages is required for day-to-day users to keep the site fresh and valuable. The result is low cost of ownership and more relevant and timely information delivered directly to customers. CoVia Vortal is available now. For additional information, please visit
