Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 08, 2014
Hannon Hill Corporation has released Cascade Server 7.12, the newest version of its award-winning enterprise content management system. With the addition of a broken link report and new stale content filters, the latest version of the CMS continues the company’s ongoing initiative to improve the user experience and focuses on content reporting and content authoring with enhancements to the draft and editing interfaces.
Cascade Server 7.12 features a brand new site-wide broken link report. Keeping up with the quality of your site’s internal and external links is no easy undertaking, but it's an essential part of maintaining a high caliber website. Both your visitors and search engines demand sites to be free of broken links. This feature will regularly scan your site for both internal and external links, allowing users to find and fix these links before they ever go live.
“Think of how negative a visitor’s impression of your site could be if they were redirected to a page that no longer existed? A bad user experience can result in lower trust and lower conversions, and it can hurt your SEO efforts. These are just some of the reasons I’m so excited about the new broken link report feature and how it can improve the effectiveness of our clients' marketing efforts,” said Hannon Hill’s Marketing Coordinator, Diana Muina.
Cascade Server 7.12 introduces more improvements to content drafting, including simpler and cleaner draft status indicators with clearer messaging and added information about when your draft was last updated.
“Cascade Server 7.12 is our second major release so far this year. Our customers keep telling us how much they appreciate the more frequent releases, because they can get their hands on new features more quickly,” said Hannon Hill’s CEO, Kat Liendgens.
Cascade Server 7.12 also brings the ability to apply one or more folder filters to the Stale Content report to help you focus on just the content that matters to you. Folder filters are specific to each user and can be applied by both stale assets and assets needing review.
“We really zeroed in on the authoring and reporting phases of the content lifecycle because we know that's where a lot of users spend their time. Even subtle changes to frequently repeated processes in these phases can go a long way, and this release has both subtle and game-changing features,” said Hannon Hill’s VP of Engineering, Bradley Wagner.
Lastly, Cascade Server 7.12 improves support for inserting and link-checking scheme-relative links to keep up with the trend towards more HTTPS-enabled sites and a secure web.
