Albany - Mercury Web Solutions has recently begun incorporating its new Content Management System, MercuryCMS 2.0, into all of its new website development projects. The platform, which was developed in house by Mercury’s staff of professional developers, is based on the Microsoft ASP.NET platform.
MercuryCMS has been available since late 2007. Planned enhancements, made since its introduction, have brought the software to the MercuryCMS 2.0 level. The CMS gives Mercury the ability to develop its websites with the foundation of a re-usable modular based platform that is customized to the needs of each individual client.
Some of the optional items now available through version 2.0 are tools for News and Events, Media and Photo Galleries, Business or Membership Directories, Membership Registration, Polling Systems and Online Payment Solutions - all tools that can be easily managed by the client. The CMS, which is all database driven, uses some of the latest technology available in website design and development.
“The nice thing about this system is that, even though we start development of each project with the same basic foundation, we can customize the various elements to meet the needs of each particular client. Other developers, that use off-the-shelf CMS platforms, are not able to modify the code to provide the exact design and functionality a client may want incorporated,” says Don Buskard, CEO of Mercury Web Solutions.
MercuryCMS 2.0 is the first of many new initiatives the company has planned for the upcoming year. They have stated that the new CMS platform will allow Mercury to offer new products and services much faster, enhancing their competitiveness in a wide range of market opportunities.
