SoftQuad Announces XMetaL Quick Start Program

SoftQuad Software Ltd. this week launched its XMetaL Quick Start Program. XMetaL Quick Start enables companies to prototype, pilot or deploy an "XMetaL content creation solution" for XML-based publishing, e-commerce and knowledge management applications.

The XMetaL Quick Start Program is customized for each organization's needs, and can be utilized to enhance existing content applications as well as develop new applications from scratch. SoftQuad and the client have an initial consultation, and then SoftQuad designs a customized program, including XMetaL user licenses and consultation services focused on the specific areas that will get the application off the drawing board and onto the Web.

Each XMetaL Quick Start package includes one or more services, including:

  • Development of a Requirements Document
  • Information Analysis and DTD creation
  • XMetaL Performance Tuning
  • Advanced XMetaL Customization and Application Development
  • Integration with Backend Systems
  • On-site XMetaL Training
The XMetaL Quick Start Program sells for a retail price of $10,000. XMetaL is an "advanced XML authoring solution that delivers unprecedented ease of use to authors, while shielding them from the complexities of XML." The tool uses a familiar word processor-like environment that makes XMetaL a deployable solution used to reduce typical training and implementation costs.
