Ektron eWebEditPro
by Rick Smith (March 5, 2001)


Once a corporate web site is launched, keeping it updated can be a big headache. While many complex and expensive publishing solutions exist, Ektron has created the eWebEditPro software tool to help solve this problem affordably. People who create text content can now be the people who change, add or modify pages, without having to contact the webmaster and without becoming an HTML expert.

The eWebEditPro program works very simply. It looks and acts like Microsoft Word, runs on your local browser and requires little or no installation. It can be used for quick text changes as well as editing complex items like tables, links and image references, without having to deal with HTML. This allows anyone who can operate a word processor to effectively edit and maintain web content. To maintain a corporate "look and feel", the webmaster can impose "rules" on font size, style and formatting used.

Key features of Ektron's eWebEditPro are:

  • Faster web updates - changes can be made when needed or when mistakes are found, instead of waiting for the next "batch" of changes to be made

  • Fewer workflow bottlenecks - more people can make the changes instead of only the "webmaster"

  • Easy to use - simple "Word-like" interface won't require specialized training

  • No/little software installation - software runs in the browser

  • Higher quality pages - text can be spellchecked during entry eliminating spelling mistakes during entry

  • Better looking pages - tables and images can be added that may be too time consuming to be created by "webmaster"

  • Multi-platform/Multi-browser compatibility - runs on PC and Mac, IE and Netscape.

  • Central control - Webmaster can control formatting and other functions.

  • Low cost - a TEN user license is only $299
