Syncrony, a national provider of Web design and content management services, has beefed up its arsenal of website development and Content Management System (CMS) tools with the recent inclusion of DotNetNuke (DNN) 6.2.
DNN 6.2 is a social CMS that enables the creation and deployment of powerful internal social collaboration solutions and online communities for customers, partners and employees.
“The latest version of DNN software builds on the already strong Web CMS capabilities that have made it the leading Web content solution in the Microsoft ecosystem. With its social capabilities, it has significant internal and external implications for business,” explains Howard Rybko, CEO of Syncrony.
“Internally the business can create social networks in order to strengthen various aspects of the operation, including productivity, collaboration and overall communication. From an external point of view, the platform can be used to build communities which will enhance the role of the customer. This is a targeted offering that aims to lower support costs and increase revenue,” says Rybko.
He adds that social software and the formation of integrated online communities adds a fresh dimension to website development and general appreciation.
“DotNetNuke is very pleased to be partnering with Syncrony to bring the leading social CMS for business to the South African market.” says Bob Cortale, Senior Vice President, Sales and Customer Care of DotNetNuke Corporation. “With the comprehensive suite of social tools integrated into DNN 6.2, and Syncrony’s expertise in professional site development, we will now be able to deliver feature-rich, collaborative websites to a new and rapidly growing market.”
The combination of robust social tools with websites means that decision makers can pay attention to the relevance of online communities – and Syncrony is in a leading position to ensure that this aspect of their online presence remains front-of-mind for local companies.
“In order to compete more effectively, businesses not only have to have effective online presences, but they need to engage with communities online, build brands, portfolios and advertise services. The new software helps to facilitate this and we have the expertise to support clients all the way,” Rybko adds.
He believes from a service delivery point of view, there is a clear-cut opportunity for operators to add more value to the market and help to empower clients to leverage off the expanding social network environment.
