Through its unique drag-and-drop interface, Percussion CM1 enables users to create, launch, and optimize sophisticated web sites with unmatched simplicity and at lower cost. Users can easily make any kind of edit or change -- such as creating new templates, modifying page layouts, integrating social content, or embedding third-party web applications -- enabling users to take control of their WCM initiatives while maintaining the flexibility to address "What's Next" on the web. By empowering the user, organizations can make the vast majority of required ongoing updates and changes to the site on their own, reducing their reliance on time-strapped internal technology teams or costly external services providers.
