Share Article

Elcom has released elcomCMS 8.2. We take a look under the hood to see what’s new and exciting in this latest release.

Leading .NET enterprise web content management system provider, Elcom has announced the release of the latest version of elcomCMS, 8.2.

Following on from the success of 8.1, which was released in December 2012, Elcom has continued to expand and enhance its collaborative and social capability.

Meeting Manager

A unique capability that Elcom has introduced to elcomCMS 8.2 is the new Meeting Manager module. This dedicated management tool provides Meeting Co-coordinators, Executive Assistants and anyone responsible with managing a meeting with the functionality to schedule meetings, upload agendas, create meeting packs, invite participants and more. For meeting attendees, it provides a central portal to access to calendars, meeting information and documentation in readiness for meeting. It goes one step further and actually lets the meeting co-ordinators record minutes against agenda items in real time and monitor and record the time taken.

This is a particularly powerful tool for boards, projects teams and anyone that meet regularly, on either a project basis or for strategic level discussions.

Facebook, Twitter & Google Connectors

Elcom has strengthened elcomCMS’ connectors to external social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter and Google in 8.2. OAuth, the standard for web authorization, has been implemented to provide single-sign-on capability to elcomCMS. Members simply use their preferred social networking account credentials to log into elcomCMS, reducing administration and support requirements.

Other capabilities introduced include the ability to track the number of page ‘shares’ and ‘likes’ individual members have made; and the ability to push and promote events managed through the elcomCMS into Facebook Events.

Responsive Images

elcomCMS now takes your uploaded images and creates several sizes and versions for a variety of screen sizes. When a mobile device instead of simply “squashing” the original image elcomCMS will behave responsively and serve the appropriately sized image for the device allowing you to provide a seamless responsive design.

Dropbox, SkyDrive & Google Drive Connector

Cloud-based file hosting services such as, Dropbox, SkyDrive, Google Drive, Box, are growing in popularity and elcomCMS 8.2 has delivered connectors that allow you to access your external accounts through elcomCMS.

List, navigate and search through your 3rd party cloud storage within a dedicated page on elcomCMS.

Elcom has also managed to squeeze in other great features into this release. Notable new features and enhancements include: Responsive Image management, PayPal Connector, SCORM management, built-in Image editing and geo-location template switching.

Commenting on the latest release, Anthony Milner, Elcom’s Product Director said “this release has a particularly strong focus on integration with third party tools. Users are embracing BYOD for hardware but this concept has also been occurring within the enterprise evidenced by the large number of teams using popular cloud storage solutions such as Dropbox and Skydrive. Our latest release helps teams to unify their information no matter where it exists.”
