A Content Management System for Multiple Users

I’m continuing to test drive iCMS, the content management system from our client, IDD, Inc.  As what I term a technology survivor, I am enjoying a leisurely, step-by-step start. 

As a company owner and founder, I envision my company’s future corporate site with many users. Handshake 2.0 is a custom site built on a TypePad backend.  Although I have stretched the use of TyepPad for content management, its function, which it delivers beautifully, is content creation and publishing.  In the future, our growing enterprise will need software that can handle multiple users with multiple permissions to create, edit and publish content. 

As I mentioned in my first impressions of iCMS, I felt very gratified to see the “Admin” tab upon log in.  When I put the cursor on the Admin tab, I beheld a dropdown menu of a dozen options with delight.  I seek power usership of the software in my world and I need to see the structure of what I’m using to understand its capabilities.

iCMS offers multiple options for site administrators

Since multiple users are on my mind, I clicked Admin, then Group Editor.  Again, multiple options displayed themselves among the Group Tasks.  I was impressed with the high level of tasks available to all users, and how any combination of them could be assigned to groups of users. 

iCMS allows a choice of tasks to be assigned to groups of users

Conclusions so far about iCMS, without having even created a page of content:  It makes sense.  It looks easy.

From this twenty-year veteran of software, “easy” is not a word I use lightly.  Or often.
