Percussion Software Named a "Hot Vendor for 2013" by Aragon Research

WOBURN, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2013) -  Percussion Software, a leading provider of web content management (WCM) software, today announced that it has been named Hot Vendor in Content Management and Collaboration for 2013 by Aragon Research. This annual report released by Aragon Research highlights vendors with a new product or service offering, release of a compelling new technology, or a compelling offering that leverages trending technologies such as Cloud, Content, Mobile or Video. Percussion was selected because of its patent pending technology, releasing any day now, that allows organizations to import website design and content with very little services or HTML work.

"Enterprises want better ways to manage their websites, including migrating the website theme when switching to a new WCM provider. Percussion is pushing the envelope here with their new import tool," said Aragon Research CEO & Lead Analyst Jim Lundy.

"Percussion changes this WCM game and is offering organizations the ability to migrate their websites without the manual labor costs, allowing marketers to immediately publish, create, and edit all content and templates. Waiting is not a business option! Companies wait months and years to affect the content on their website because the time to 'go live' is too resource intensive and thus too costly. This cost is creating a disadvantage to getting content updated frequently, which impacts getting found on Google or any other search engine," said Deidre Diamond, President and CEO, Percussion Software. "At Percussion we say 'go live' first, migrate into CM1, and start using the WCM. Don't wait until the design is finished to give your marketers a CMS that allows them to take full control of their web content and make changes that drive revenue. Our Percussion team is committed to innovation that makes marketers' lives more productive at a much lower cost. We hope the market enjoys the innovation."

Percussion CM1 is an intuitive, visual, drag & drop interface, combined with advanced features like workflow, roles, shared assets, and versioning -- provide advanced web content management (WCM) functionality you need right out of the box. No custom development, no expensive service engagements -- just a product that works the way it should.

Just as with Content Authoring, the demand for digital content is fueling the growth of the content management market. Finalists were chosen amongst 6 other vendors, each playing a part in the big themes such as Cloud, ease of use, integration, and security.
