A new business environment exists where software systems are increasingly complex and management is asking its work force to perform more work with fewer personnel. In addition, companies are experiencing additional pressures to comply with added government and business regulations. CPortals, cSoft Technologies’ Enterprise Portal System, provides your company with the means to give your employees the needed information for their jobs so they can proactively respond to and anticipate necessary changes.
CPortals offers a customizable, single point of access to your business’ enterprise systems that can improve the productivity of each employee. CSoft Technologies’ professional installation team works with your team to understand your business systems and to train your staff how to integrate your existing business solutions.
• A .Net application with a customizable framework that can interface with most business systems using a database
• Full security controls that allow area content managers to administer security at the page, module, or site level
• Area content managers with ability to design the look and feel of their web site without affecting other areas within the company
• A wide selection of ready-to-use modules which area content managers can use to customize their own area.
CPortals is not like other portal systems. With its unique implementation method, the CPortals software allows the system administrator to establish independent portal instances for each business area and assign a content manager for each area. The system administrator can also establish modules that are available site-wide. Content managers can then design their portal site and add the appropriate content modules for their area web sites.
CPortals is intended to be used by non-IT personnel to create and maintain their own website. There is no complicated process or confusing terminology that typically would require someone with an IT background to understand and implement.
Content is easily added to any page using the different content modules. Each module allows the page administrators to design the look and feel that best works for their area.
