Vasont Releases Vasont 11 Single-source CMS

Vasont Systems announced the release of Vasont 11, the latest version of its single-source content management system that enables organizations to store their multilingual content once for maximum reuse and delivery to multiple channels. Vasont 11 has an improved and simplified user interface (UI). The new UI includes a Windows-like design with buttons and icons so users can easily navigate through the system. Detail panes bring relevant information about the selected content’s properties and relationships, such as its content reuse, versions, and metadata, to the user’s fingertips for greater productivity and less “clicking” to find information. Vasont’s Home page is personalized for each user, displaying his/her favorite collections, queries, and workspaces for quick access to content. Also, up-to-date workflow information provides the user a “to-do list” based on his/her active workflow tasks. Vasont 11 also includes many other productivity enhancements beyond the UI. Vasont’s LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) integration allows for enterprise security with a single login for each user for organizations using LDAP. The continuation of their architecture migration includes asynchronous server side processing for loads and clones, allowing client machines to be freed up so users can continue to work on their machines while these processes are running. http://www.vasont.com
