An engine fully developed with J2EE technology and a Graphical User Interface (GUI), fully visual and easy-to-use, based on OpenLaszlo.
Fine-grained operator role & permissions
With Platinum you can define different operator groups; for each group you can decide which actions it can make on the content, whereas each single operator can be assigned permissions on applications and features, as well as the website areas he/she can manage.
You may also assign operators a different editor level (basic, standard or advanced), depending on his/her skill.
Platinum engine allows a multi-site management through the same back-end interface, so as you can manage different websites with just one installation (virtual hosts). This important feature enables you to share digital contents archives, operators, and any other asset, among even totally different websites.
Content publication Workflow
Contents, edited by all editorial staff, may be subject to an approving workflow, before they get published online. Platinum provides a 2-level workflow: "Editor" and "Approver".
Within the Platinum back-end dashboard each single "Approver" can find a detailed to-do list about the contents that need to be verified and approved or rejected.
Data integration from external sources
If you need to access data stored in external sources (ERP, company DBs, Third-party applications, etc.) or provide them through your Internet or Intranet website, with Platinum you can import or access such data.
Your sales data, B2B order entries, or a structured product catalogue: Platinum can be interfaced manyfold: XML/Web Service, Talend, Quartz, iBatis, Hibernate, Mule ESB.
Easy-to-use and user-friendly interface
Platinum Graphical User Interface (GUI) is fully developed with OpenLaszlo (www.openlaszlo.org), a technology enabling the development of web-based applications with a very good usability and user-experience. Platinum back-end is therefore provided through a high performing and appealing interface, thanks to a Drag & Drop feature.
Restricted areas and user profiling (LDAP, SSO, Active Directory)
Platinum provides you with highly flexible tools to manage areas with access restricted to profiled and authenticated users. All necessary users profiling and management features are built-in: signing up, profile modification, password retrieval and authentication. User's profile data can be easily extended according to your website needs, by adding those data necessary to better profile a user, such as more personal information (e.g. photo, phone numbers, social network accounts, …), user categorization (e.g. Department, Unit, …).
AUTHENTICATION can be accordingly enhanced through an integration with an LDAP / Active Directory. You can moreover set up a Single Sign-On (SSO) with external third-party applications.
High performances – Caching
Platinum engine has been optimized with caching tecnhniques, so as to increase performances and reduce hardware needs.
With Platinum you can manage a multi-language website, by easily duplicating the structure of another language and all its contents.
Platinum is compatible with both western and eastern / middle-eastern languages.
Staging and Production – Publishing a content is always one click away
Platinum provides you with a staging feature, hence allowing to distinguish between a staging and production environment. This important feature enables editors to work on a page content with no worry of doing something wrong on the online version of the page content he/she is modifying, because staging and production are two logical separated environments.
Editor can preview the page he/she is editing in stage mode. Once ready he/she can submit in production (ready to publish) the edited content. Publication can be carried on either on a single page or a whole subset of the sitemap, with just one click.
