Intranet Connections has released the newest version of its intranet 2.0 CMS platform with the aims of reducing administration overhead for intranet managers and simplifying the design of site navigation. Intranet Connections version 10.5 targets small to medium size businesses wishing to have SharePoint-like functionality, but without the price tag or management overhead.
Carolyn Douglas, CEO of Intranet Connections, “Our focus is on ease-of-use and providing SMB’s with an out-of-the-box intranet that they can implement themselves. Version 10.5 provides intranet administrators with a simple solution that is easy to install, implement and manage on an ongoing basis, without the need for custom development.”
A key enhancement in the new release is the addition of a revised menu builder that features a drag and drop interface to manage site navigation. The redesigned interface allows administrators to add a horizontal menu to their site, create drop down menus, add menu headers and relocate menu items from the left main to the site header directly through the site interface. The new menu builder provides more flexibility to intranet managers wishing to customize their information architecture in a simple manner.
This latest release also builds on the popular tagging feature with the addition of a new content tag management interface. The robust tag administration area simplifies routine tag management tasks such as creating tag groups, moving tags between groups and finding tags with dynamically filtered search results. Admins can pre-populate and organize commonly used tags so that end users can easily tag and find relevant content.
Also included among the other features of v10.5 are an upgrade of the HTML editor to improve accuracy when composing complex document layouts or pasting from Word, an extranet friendly security model to simplify user-rights administration on intranet/extranet implementations and a new Multiple File Upload tool for improved ease-of-use, stability and performance.
