SITEFORUM successfully takes the reigns of Mail-Service @ingenieur.de

1. July 2015 - Erfurt, Germany - SITEFORUM offer is very well received by engineers

1. July 2015 - Erfurt, Germany - The publishing house VDI used to offer a free mail-service with the attractive @ingenieur.de address and, for four years, provided their members professional real-time communication on the SITEFORUM platform. In order to get a suitable product for their needs, engineers were able to choose between a free basic package and a premium version with extended features.

At the end of 2014, VDI decided to stop the mail-service and concentrate on other business units. It was clear for SITEFORUM that it would continue the paid service on its own. With an improved and favorable offer engineers would be able to show their profession in their private and business emails.

The mail-service offers all advantages of modern online communication:

  • personal address, e.g. firstname.lastname@ingenieur.de or company@ingenieur.de
  • convenient web interface to write, send and receive e-mails from any computer
  • 100% ad-free
  • options to set up the address for email programs like Outlook or on smartphones
  • online address book, redirect feature and out of office notes

All of that in compliance with high security standards, as the complete email communication is saved on servers in German data centers.

Because of the great demand for @ingenieur.de addresses, SITEFORUM has decided to expand its service and also, in the future, to provide an attractive and cost-efficient mail-service for other industries and interest groups.

This version will mark another milestone in SITEFORUM’s history and is due to be released in summer 2014. It will be an overall improvement of the software and will come with lots of great new features to look forward to. Also, existing features will be consolidated, replaced or given a complete makeover to make sure you get the most efficient tools to support your business. Here is sneak preview of what to expect…

New fully integrated Editor

Throughout the portal you will find a new and fully integrated WYSIWYG editor with a huge featureset for easy content creation in all SITEFORUM modules. We have chosen the CKEditor which has a large open source community, is compatible with all browsers, and allows BBcode and Add-ons. See http://cksource.com for more details. We will provide different versions of the editor for different content types and you will be able to select which type you would like to use for your content. We also plan to add a caching mechanism so you don’t have to start from scratch when you leave the page by mistake or your session expired. In case you run own applications in your SITEFORUM portal you will find easy guidelines how to integrate this new WYSIWYG editor.

Improved Subscription Management

The subscription management will be heavily improved and enhanced with release 8.0. This will enable you to subscribe to public media pool folders and receive notifications when new files are available in these folders. In the company directory you also will be able to allow your registered users to follow companies of their choice in order to receive alerts when the company posts new content or uploads new files. A great benefit for companies and your users. Additionally you will be able to easily plugin your own custom applications.

New security feature “Temporary Login”

This new feature supports high data protection transparency as it will enable Portal Masters to nominate a specific user for a login as another user for a limited period of time. This can be very helpful for support incidents or when staff members are on temporary leave and you have to replace them. The nominated user is informed via email that they’ve got a temporary login and can access the portal with the other user’s privileges without knowing the login details. Everything will be tracked and will be available for Portal Masters in their history. You can also switch on email notifications for the user who’s login is being used.

Improved Developer Tools

More and more of our clients decide to build applications on their own based on their SITEFORUM Portal. SITEFORUM 8.0 will be equipped with the stable version of the newly integrated code editor for our development environment, SITEFORUM Studio. This editor (http://ace.c9.io/) runs in most browser versions and does now support several functionalities of the SITEFORUM programming language. We will also provide new debug / log files to our increasing developer community which allow you to easily eliminate performance issues and to improve your source code.

Other Highlights

  • Improved way to customize pages with a heavily simplified, easy-to-use Application Pool
  • Improved event application for easy participation
  • Support of the EU cookie directive to easily show your visitors / users the cookie policy of your portal
  • New mass operations for invoice management
  • Story sorting via drag & drop
  • Human readable URL’s in nearly all modules to boost you portal ranking in search engines

SITEFORUM Included in the Cool Vendors Supporting Multiple Nexus Forces, 2013 by Gartner

May 1st, 2013 - Erfurt, Germany - Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, today cites SITEFORUM in the “Where are They Now” section of the Cool Vendors Supporting Multiple Nexus Forces, 2013 report. SITEFORUM’s „MobileSuccess360™ customer-relationship building and engagement platform” employs all four of the Nexus Forces: mobile, social, information and cloud.

Each year, Gartner publishes a series of research reports in key technology areas that identify vendors with innovative products and services. The Nexus of Forces describes the convergence and mutual reinforcement of four interdependent trends: social interaction, mobility, cloud, and information. The forces combine to empower individuals as they interact with each other and their information through well-designed ubiquitous technology. SITEFORUM, a German software vendor and platform provider has been evaluated for their MobileSuccess360 platform.

The “MobileSuccess360™ platform” addresses a problem that many retailers, shop owners, restaurants and other businesses have with many unknown visiting customers. They can find it difficult to establish close relationships with their direct or indirect customers. Buyers leave with the product they purchased and a receipt; but there is little opportunity to follow-up or engage them. Using classical Customer Relationship Management (CRM) techniques is not the solution; there are too many people and too little time. How can a business solve this problem? Traditional “one-to-many” marketing methods such as flyers, classified Ads, and television and radio spots are an expensive and inefficient way to reach these customers and learn about their affinities and preferences.

Dirk Schlenzig, CEO of SITEFORUM, says, “We believe being cited in the a Gartner Cool Vendors Supporting Multiple Nexus Forces, 2013 report, exemplifies our solution as a forerunner and thought leader. We enable organizations to discover their large number of unknown customers and take them on a journey where these customers become not only known customers but really good friends and even advocates of that organization. Our platform has a “built-in seven steps Mobile Engagement Strategy” that helps these companies to move away from the traditional ‘one-to-many’ approach to the revolutionary ‘one-to-one’ relationship."
