Local online application developer and Internet services company Chromium last week launched a Web editing product that it claims is so simple to use that even a CEO could manipulate the contents of a Web page.
The Content Management System, which was revealed at the Smart Business '99 Electronic Commerce Expo in Perth, is a fully secure browser-based application that lets authorised users develop and edit Internet content and other information networks from any Web-enabled terminal.
Chromium director Rob Donkersloot said the application was developed in response to customer demand, allowing cost-effective management of Internet and intranet operations by eliminating the need to train staff in Web technologies or to pay external consultants to change the content of a site.
"We came at this from an end-user perspective. There's no point in utilising the latest technology if the system is so complicated and inefficient that people don't use it," Donkersloot said.
He claimed the system has already received strong interest from a number of corporations, while Chromium is considering partnering agreements with other Australian online solution providers.
With one site set to go live shortly, Donkersloot said the application is customised to an organisation's needs during integration and would cost around $12,000 for a mid-sized company.
