CMS Fiona 7.0.1
Friendly. Easy. Powerful. A CMS for producing interactive and dynamic websites.
Interactive and dynamic websites
Next to the renowned high performance of CMS Fiona in general, version 7 of the Infopark content management system offers many new options for implementing interactive and dynamic websites faster than ever.
With the combination of Ruby on Rails and Infopark's CMS Fiona, the layout and the functionality are designed and developed as a Rails application. The content is provided by the CMS. Rails Connector for CMS Fiona takes care of the collaboration between the two components.
The widget concept, based on true in-place editing, has been available since 2014 for version 7. This makes it possible to design completely new kinds of graphical user interfaces and therefore simplifies the editors' daily routine.
With this cooperation of the practice-proven CMS and the modern Ruby on Rails framework, creating high-performance and scalable websites and web applications where content management, content publication and dialogue applications are readily integrated is quick and easy.
In addition, we offer companies and organizations a setup for the cloud for Fiona CMS.
Tailor-made web applications
CMS Fiona combines targeted information handling with perfect integration of multiple country sites, micro-site and customer relationship management. The possibility of tailor-made web applications with the content management system can be used quickly and easily - from the corporate website to the customer service to the information portal.
Simple handling concept with in-place editing
CMS Fiona has a menu-oriented, clearly structured and pleasant graphical user interface. The user guidance is oriented on popular operating systems and standard applications. The consistent task orientation makes the learning curve easy without any expensive training. You can edit content directly from the preview mode.
In-place editing guarantees the quality is high by making the handling easy and providing precise layout control. Using "Action Markers", any function, e.g. scripts or help texts, can be directly inserted into the interface. Browsing through the preview is completely synchronized with the navigation and the personalization functions.
The widget concept takes the process of working directly in the content a step further. Here, the individual components - so-called widgets - are placed on the page and filled with content. The individual widgets can be completed to an extremely high degree and can be reused and extended as often as you like. And there are no limits to the features of a widget. It is possible, for instance, to insert entire picture galleries, videos or forms via drag & drop and without any programming knowledge.

Advantages of integrating Fiona 7 CMS with web customer relationship management (WebCRM)
Content presentation and customer interaction in the web are directly connected through content. Precise information about the interests and actions of the existing and new customers makes it possible to develop and apply targeted offers and marketing strategies. It is therefore recommendable to include important functions of customer relationship management at the editing level.
The WebCRM integrates all the important basic functions for customer relationship management, for instance:
- Contact and account administration
- Customer history management
- Administration of expenses
- Prospective client management
- E-mail campaigns
- Ticketing system and customer care
- Event management
Linking CRM and CMS in a single portal allows for personalized information handling and direct customer management right at the content management level. This accelerates the interaction, increases the service quality and subsequently customer bonding and satisfaction.
Using CMS Fiona provides benefits in many areas. The most important factors are:
- Cost savings in the administration, editing and handling of web-based information systems
- Increased productivity through corporate-wide integration of applications and automation of routine work
- Quality improvement through multiple usage of content, consistent application of the corporate design, automatic link management, etc.
- Reduction of risks through detailed control of the lifecycle of content and time-controlled publication processes
The joint administration of content for print and online alone makes it possible to easily save costs in the five-to-six digit range.
