Vasont Systems announced the latest interim release of its top component content management system (CCMS), Vasont® ST 2.4, that enables users to store multilingual content once for maximum reuse and deliver it to multiple media channels. Enhancements in this release focus on project management and system administration improvements. Vasont ST 2.4 is now available for both the perpetual license and SaaS (software as a service) CMS (content management system) models.
The Vasont ST 2.4 CMS includes project management enhancements such as notifications when projects are estimated to run behind schedule, giving managers advanced notice of potential scheduling issues so they can be resolved before they adversely affect product launches and costs. The new Project Tasks Description Report provides managers with detailed information about workflow projects to monitor and improve the organization’s processes, and can be used to compile and deliver a set of procedural instructions for users. In addition, the new Map Asset Report summarizes all assets used within a map to support tracking content modules, quality-checking of content prior to publishing, and improving content reuse in both DITA and non-DITA CMS environments.
The company notes that “Vasont CMS system administrators also benefit from upgrades in release ST 2.4.” The upgrades include expanded user privileges for more flexibility in user profile maintenance. Preferences within the Vasont CMS software allow system administrators to amend content configurations more quickly using new batch capabilities to update metadata.
Designed to improve productivity and dynamic publishing, the Vasont ST 2.4 CMS helps organizations streamline their multilingual technical documentation and business information via flexible business rules and workflow functionality. The system’s comprehensive single-source functionality stores content once, ensuring accuracy and increasing the efficiency of repurposing content to multiple media formats while managing the workflow and the overall business process of creating and publishing content.
