PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Telerik®, an end-to-end provider of development tools and solutions for building and analyzing cross-platform and mobile applications, is celebrating the explosive success of Sitefinity™, the company’s renowned web content management (WCM) solution. In the last 12 months, Sitefinity has grown its user base by 40,000 to a total of 70,000, and now drives websites for 49 of the Fortune 500. Sitefinity’s strong multinational traction also continues, with recent customer wins including BNP Paribas Fortis (Belgium), IC Group (Canada) Phones4you (UK), and Shearings (UK). Additionally, Telerik released Sitefinity 6, a new version that harnesses the competitive possibilities of mobile. Sitefinity has also won major industry awards, including the Stevie® “People’s Choice Award” for “Favorite Content Management Solution.”
“Sitefinity changed the way we work. We’ve reinvented the way we go to market and are clearly moving up the value chain,” said Paul M. Lacap, Director of Product Innovation & Marketing Services, IC Group. “Since implementing Sitefinity, our web project turnaround time has gone from weeks to days, saving us an immense amount of time and effort. Telerik’s Sitefinity was well worth the investment.”
The Mobile Imperative for Web Content Management Systems
Web traffic for branded websites is becoming increasingly mobile. Web experiences must be tiered to support this massive trend. Telerik’s Sitefinity reflects a comprehensive strategy that uniquely delivers on that need.
Gartner recently noted, “As mobile computing continues to grow explosively, finding ways to effectively deploy existing Web assets to mobile channels is paramount.”1 Sitefinity 6 addresses three key areas of mobile content – responsive design, mobile websites and mobile apps. Telerik’s industry standard-setting mobile approach has been acknowledged with several key awards, including:
- American Business Awards SM (Stevie) “People’s Choice Awards - Favorite Content Management Solution” and “New Product or Service of the Year – Software – Content Management Solution” – Gold Winner
- KMWorld “2013 Trend-Setting Product” – Sitefinity 6 was selected by the panel because it demonstrates thoughtful, well-reasoned innovation and execution for the most important constituency: the customer.
- International Business Awards SM (Stevie) “Best New Product or Service of the Year – Software – New Version” – Silver Winner - “Complete Mobile Strategies Now Possible with Telerik Sitefinity 6”
- Golden Bridge Awards – Two finalist designations for “Mobile Innovative Products or Services” and “Mobile/Wireless Solutions”
Partnering for Success
Sitefinity continues expanding its alliances. In the last year, more than 100 companies have joined the Sitefinity Partner Program. Telerik also launched the “Sitefinity Partner Awards Program” in July. Categories include: Top Websites of the Month, Partner of the Quarter, Expertise Awards and Certified Solution Partner Awards.
“In 2013, we delivered the first truly mobile web content management platform that gives organizations the flexibility to pick the mobile strategy that’s best for them, rather than one their vendor supports,” said Martin Kirov, Executive Vice President for Telerik’s Sitefinity. “But we’ve delivered so much more, too – whether aligning ourselves with the best services teams around the world or providing integrations with popular business technologies that enable organizations to deliver a more personal experience to their audience through richer context. We have no intention of slowing our innovation down. Look for more exciting announcements in the coming months.”
