Share Article

Medium sized businesses depend on concrete5 for their web presence. These tools let larger groups enjoy the ease of use of in-context editing.

PortlandLabs, the company behind concrete5 CMS, has released new tools and pricing to serve larger organizations that want an easy way to edit their website.

Multi-Step Content Workflow
Enforces custom multi-step, multi-path content approval steps while maintaining concrete5's intuitive editing experience.

Adds collaboration tools to increase efficiencies for a team managing a multilingual localized web presence.

Centralized Digital Asset Management
Creates a single source of truth for data which can be repurposed across print, mobile and multiple micro-sites.

HTML Exporter
Takes a complete copy of a website’s latest content and creates a set of files that can be hosted on any web server or CDN.

“These tools, along with our support SLA’s, dedicated hosting, and services really provide a rich set of solutions for organizations considering concrete5 for their web presence,” says Franz Maruna, PortlandLabs CEO. “There’s no reason that the user experience of web builders like SquareSpace and Wix can’t be enjoyed by larger organizations with complex needs. With concrete5, we’ve eliminated the gap between publishing and editing for mission critical business websites.”

While there are thousands of content management systems out there, very few let you fix a typo by just popping the page into edit mode. The intuitive approach of concrete5 is beloved by content editors who can consume and create documents in the same UI in a word processor, but often have to suffer through an arcane frontend vs. backend approach for editing their website.

Concrete5 is so simple to use, one might think it isn’t powerful enough to serve a large organization’s web presence, but nothing could be further from the truth. A powerful permissions model lets site administrators control access down to individual parts of specific pages on the site. Every change is tracked with versions that can be rolled back. Many organizations have used concrete5 to build public facing marketing sites and secure intranets.
