Manhattan, MT (PRWEB) July 31, 2006
TechMeridian, a leader in the development of web management tools for business users, will launch its new service, Tuplix in the fall of 2006. Tuplix is a next generation service for managing websites. It will enable non-technical users to edit the content of any website – new or existing, without installing software or moving the site to a new hosting provider.
TechMeridian envisions marketing the Tuplix service primarily to web graphic designers who will turn around and offer the service to their business clients.
Tuplix will greatly ease the burden of site maintenance tasks. Today, designers are usually responsible for making ongoing content edits to their clients' websites after the sites launch. Keeping up with constant edits often becomes a hassle for designers, and more often than not their clients wish to make edits on their own, but are unable to. "With all the talk of Web 2.0, businesses are finally ready for this kind of tool," says Michal Lenz, President of Echo Alley Inc., an Information Architecture company in Vancouver, WA. "To date, the only way I can provide web editing capabilities for a custom business website is to hire a programmer to implement a custom software tool. This costs thousands of dollars and can take months."
Tuplix will eliminate this hassle. Designers will be able to hand off the editing responsibilities directly to their clients through Tuplix. And since designers will be able to tightly control what areas of the website can be edited, they need not worry that their clients might accidentally modify the overall design.
Tuplix will work with existing websites. By making a five second change to any existing web page, content within that page will become editable inside Tuplix.
Ease of use is a top priority. The learning curve for a new user will be under five minutes. Users will make content edits on the web page itself, instead of going to a separate page. Utilizing web 2.0 technologies like AJAX and DHTML, Tuplix will offer the flexibility of a web-based application with functionality found in desktop software. Tuplix is built on a PHP5 code framework and the industry leading open source database, PostgreSQL.
Since Tuplix will run as a web-based service, customers will be able to make edits from anywhere and will not need to install any software. It will be available as a monthly service with hosted and remote hosting options.
TechMeridian will release Tuplix, for private beta testing in the summer of 2006. Tuplix will be available for the public in the fall of 2006.
