SiteEditor.com, a revolutionary online content management system, goes live.
East Sussex, UK - January 18th 1999. SiteEditor.com, the
revolutionary online content management system announced at this
year's MacWorld Expo San Francisco goes live today.
SiteEditor.com, accessible on the Web at http://www.siteEditor.com/,
enables organisations to quickly and efficiently build and maintain
web sites in a zero-HTML publishing environment.
"What really sets SiteEditor.com apart from other content management
products is that it's a web based application. The customer does not
have to install any software on their computer other than a standard
web browser, available free of charge from Microsoft or Netscape. In
addition, there's no hardware to buy and maintain. We host the
content management server and the software. The customer accesses our
site via the Web to perform all their web site management tasks and
finished HTML and graphics files are transferred by FTP to the
customer's own web site elsewhere on the Internet", said Dan Garner,
Managing Director of NewMedia Workshop, "Alternatively, we can also
host the web site and pages can be rendering dynamically from the
"Traditionally, content management systems are expensive. Take, for
example, Vignette StoryServer. It would cost many tens of thousands
of dollars to get this system up and running. This has stopped all
but the upper echelon of web sites from investing in such a system.
With SiteEditor.com, we're empowering users, for no start-up fee and
then only $50 per month, with a powerful content management system to
look after the day to day content management of their web site - a
task which we all know is the biggest single cost, both in time and
effort, for a web site owner.
This converts to great savings for the customer. Not only is there no
investment in technology, but the support and maintenance costs are
vastly reduced. Using SiteEditor.com, the return on investment for a
company is much faster."
The system can also link into a company's existing content production
methods by using a companion application for Windows and MacOS called
SiteEditor Gateway. An organisation can easily route existing word
processor or database content through SiteEditor Gateway and onto the
In addition to web pages, Adobe Acrobat and QuarkXPress XTags

generated, making SiteEditor.com an ideal solution in a mixed-media
