WoodWing Software have released version 9.2 of its multi-channel publishing system Enterprise. Via a brand new connector, this release enables the centralized publication of content to WordPress sites.
WoodWing Software, founded in 2000, develops and markets a premier, cost-efficient multi-channel publishing system, Enterprise – including the editorial management application “Content Station” – coordinates and streamlines the process of creating, managing and publishing static, dynamic and interactive content for all media channels including print, Web, social, smartphones and tablets.
Along with WordPress publishing capabilities, Enterprise 9.2 also brings about a number of additional new features ensure even smoother and faster processes in multi-channel publishing environments.
Traditionally seen as more of a blogging tool, WordPress has been continuously expanding toward becoming a mature Web CMS. As a result, the distinction between traditional blogs and full-featured websites is becoming increasingly blurred. The system is rapidly gaining acceptance by media and brands, including Forbes, Time, Metro (UK) and many more.
In fact, according to WordPress, 409 million people view more than 13.1 billion WordPress pages each month.
The new WordPress connector for Enterprise enables publishers and brands to transparently integrate WordPress as a new channel in their publishing and communication processes. Content Station, the editorial management application of Enterprise, follows the same easy three-step process as for any other digital channel when it’s publishing to a WordPress site: Creation of a dossier, authoring of text and images, and the immediate publication of the article.
With Enterprise 9.2, WoodWing also further simplifies repurposing of content. Article components and other content published to WordPress sites can easily be reused in social media, mobile, other CMS systems, in print and on tablets – and vice versa.
The latest version of Content Station now eases the editing of the properties of any number of files at one time, a huge time saver when facing production deadlines. For example, users can quickly update properties of multiple assets such as their status, next assigned worker in line, copyright information, and other metadata.
In print production and tablet publishing, Enterprise Server enables users of InDesign and InCopy to access all content through WoodWing´s Smart Connection panel directly from within both applications. They can conveniently search and browse, open layouts, place images, save versions, and route documents to others according to the pre-defined workflows.
The Smart Connection plug-in now allows the replacing of an image in the layout with a file in a different format – all while the version control features of Enterprise help keep track of the changes.
With Enterprise 9.2, WoodWing also officially released the support for Adobe InDesign CC and InCopy CC, which successfully passed an intensive public testing.
Dennis van Nooij, Vice President Product at WoodWing, had this to say:
“In order to help our customers to stay competitive, we always strive to further optimize existing processes based on customer feedback, while at the same time providing new features reflecting market trends and new opportunitie. The new version 9.2 of Enterprise and Content Station offers a well-balanced mix of both.”
