Crafter Studio Enables Effective WEM Through Multi-Channel Publishing

Posted by on February 13, 2012

Over the past year, organizations of all sizes and have shifted their focus from basic Web content management towards Web experience management. As the amount of Web usage continues to grow for both consumers and enterprises, creating an engaging Web experience is now a top priority. I’m sure that many people have experienced incidents where a website’s lackluster UI or ineffective search that didn’t produce the right results have deterred them from spending more time on the site or even from ever returning. Losing out on these valuable customers is a costly mistake that organizations can’t afford to make. Thus, providing relevant content thru an engaging user experience is paramount to a successful online digital strategy.

And now, with new mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets being constantly introduced to the market, organizations need to make sure those same Web experiences are applied across all delivery channels.

When it comes to managing these Web experiences, it’s important to use the right WEM system to produce a consistent experience across the different channels, and doing so in an user friendly manner.

At Rivet Logic, we’ve been busy developing and enhancing Crafter Studio, our complete authoring and publishing environment for managing Web and enterprise content. Developed as a major extension to Alfresco, Crafter Studio is a user-friendly and extensible platform for managing multi-channel publishing for mobile, Web, social channels, etc.

One new feature we’ve recently released is the availability of different templates for the different publishing channels, allowing the system to serve the same content through the appropriate template for each publishing channel – iPhone, iPad, desktop, etc.

The demo below showcases this features along with Crafter Studio’s in-context editing and multi-channel in-context preview capabilities.

Rivet Logic Officially Launches Crafter rivet

Posted by on September 23, 2009

After countless hours of development, many real-world deployments, and a few internal name changes, Rivet Logic officially launches the Crafter rivet to help with enterprise WCM implementations.

Crafter rivet is a high performance, yet flexible, content delivery framework that consumes web content that’s published from Alfresco WCM and delivers them to a variety of presentation-tier frameworks and technologies for building content-rich Web applications.

We first started development of Crafter rivet back in 2007, when we worked with Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions on their kaptest.com implementation. This successful implementation won Rivet Logic and Kaplan the JBoss Innovator of the Year Award in 2008. Since then, we’ve continued to develop Crafter rivet and to utilize it on several customer projects. Based on this success, we’ve decided to contribute back to the open source community as an open source project.

We will continue to invest in its development, and we expect to use Crafter rivet as a basis for many of our future WCM implementations. The response from some of our most recent customers has been outstanding – we have projects underway across a variety of vertical markets, and spanning several different technology stacks. For example, we are currently helping different clients implement ColdFusion, PHP, Seam, Surf, Grails and Portal front-ends for their Alfresco WCM solutions.
