Avtec CMS Receives Major Upgrade in Speed and Functionality
Avtec just recently moved Avtec CMS to a new hybrid-cloud server platform which has resulted in unprecedented speed increases as well as enhancements in functionality for the credit union CMS. Avtec CMS’s publishing speed is now twice as fast as the previous version.
When we first started working on Avtec CMS, we had many ambitions. We wanted it to look great. We wanted it to perform great. We wanted it to be easy and intuitive to use. We wanted it to have features that no other CMS like it has. We wanted it to be the best in its class. We wanted it to make the website editing experience for credit unions a joy and not a burden.
One problem with many CMS, or Content Management Systems, these days is the extra complexity on top of the design and content of a website that isn’t always necessary. Instead of following the traditional CMS model of downloading the software to your website and running it from there, AVTEC CMS instead allows you to easily manage your website from one centralized web-based dashboard. It simply stores your FTP or SFTP credentials, so you just host your website and Avtec handles hosting the CMS. Nothing is ever installed on your website and you never have to worry about your CMS database crashing.
Avtec CMS is an amazingly easy to use service that allows credit unions to give users different levels of permissions based on their knowledge. If they know what they’re doing, they can go right into an intuitive interface and start editing pages, or if they’re just learning, the credit union give them access to edit the text in a few paragraphs that they predetermine.
Inline Editing | Credit Union CMS
The driving concept behind Avtec CMS is its built-in “Inline Editing” experience. Inline Editing is a new technology introduced in Avtec CMS that allows you to select any editable element on a page and edit it in-place. As a result, the editor can be used to edit content that looks just like the final page. It is a total boost to the user experience because the edited content looks like the final outcome in a live browser. This eliminates the need for previewing pages or using a staging server because the edited content looks exactly like it will in a live browser before you even hit the “Publish” button. Inline editing allows the user to edit text directly in the page without requiring going to a separate page or article manager like in traditional CMS’s. It makes the interaction more direct and intuitive as the user can edit the text in the same place where it is shown. Overall, Inline Editing is a major game-changer.
Revisions and Backups
But there is also powerful user management, a full-featured file manager and an incredible revision system built right in. The revisions system, which stores up to 6 months of revisions and backups for every page, is the perfect solution for credit unions looking for a disaster recovery option that will meet most compliance requirements. For example, after a credit union accidentally wipes out a whole section of important text on a web page, they can simply revert to the previous version of that page with one click.
