Content management tools can do a lot these days, but few are able to match up to the exceptional default capabilities of IntelBuilder. This software acts as a CMS and social media platform, offering users the best of both worlds when it comes to content publishing and serving as a viable web application framework environment. Here is an overview and a little more on what IntelBuilder has to offer.
The Content Management Aspect
The IntelBuilder content management system is developed and maintained by software creator Vesta Digital. Like most CMS products, the software has the ability to create and manage basic content. IntelBuilder is geared more towards the inexperienced user, designed to be easy to use and managed. It makes it simple for administrators to add and edit existing content, delete content and add an unlimited number of pages to a website. Some of the most notable benefits IntelBuilder offers include:
– Built for search engine optimization with SEO-friendly URLs and meta data management.
– Cross web browser compatibility
– Automatic submission to major search engines.
– Built-in support for Google Analytics
– Integrated reporting and web statistics.
In comparison to other proprietary commercial CMS products, IntelBuilder distinguishes itself through ease of use, a rich set of features and a high level of global compatibility. Being a new solution, it is uncertain whether IntelBuilder will evolve into the award-winning content management solution its developers think it will be, but so far, it appears to be simple and powerful enough to suit the needs of most users.
The Social Media Aspect
IntelBuilder offers a social media platform that enables users to achieve a goal that is becoming increasingly popular on the web: being able to effectively distribute content. Once your content has been published, the platform lets you distribute it over popular social networking sites like FaceBook and Twitter as well as social bookmarking sites such as Delicious and Digg. It also allows you to send out content to major guns such as Google News and other prominent news and media outlets. IntelBuilder gives you the ability to effectively manage your audience of readers and subscribers along with tools for monitoring your website traffic and statistics.
Price and Availability
In all honesty, the features and capabilities mentioned in this article can be obtained from a number of CMS products through various add-ons for free. However, when going with a proprietary solution such as IntelBuilder, they will cost you some real money. The software is available in a variety of pricing plans with the most affordable coming at $49.95 per month with a one-time setup fee of $295. The platform is module heavy and very extensible, but the default installation comes with features such as a text editor, site map, RSS news, search functionality and Google Maps among others. IntelBuilder could turn out to be worth every penny but before making an investment, we recommend examining the product a little closer to determine if it can suit all of your content management and social media needs.
