Rocking the Building Blocks for Social Networks.
San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) October 9, 2009
Couto Solutions launches a completely new product and services lineup that is built around the brilliant Telligent Community Server Social Media Platform. Couto Solutions CEO, Justin Couto says, "About two and a half years ago we made a conscious decision to seek out and find a web publishing platform that would allow us to quickly build branded, scalable, modern web site applications that contain all of the features required by the Web 2.0 era of corporate collaborative web sites. That search led us to Telligent's Community Server Platform and we have never been happier." Couto Solutions has since built a plug-in system for Community Server and several product building blocks (plug-ins) that extend the Community Server Platform's functionality. Listed below is a brief description of their initial offering and how these products and services can lead to more successful social media driven web presences.
Brief Explanation of the Community Server Platform
Telligent's Community Server is a web publishing platform that provides all the modern features organizations come to expect in a web presence right out of the box. It includes Blogs for distributing articles and information, Forums for having conversations and customer interaction, Media Galleries for managing files (video, audio, etc), Content Management for managing page content, and Wikis for managing documentation and information. Did I say that comes out of the box? As you can see, it is a great starting point that can be scaled almost infinitely.
Couto Solutions Product Lineup for Telligent's Community Server
Once Couto Solutions started building custom web sites on top of the Telligent Platform, they quickly realized that many of the customizations they were developing could be repurposed for other clients. As a result, they decided to start offering products for the platform. Below is a list of what they currently offer and they are just getting started:
