NetObjects Unveils Authoring Server Suite 3.0

NetObjects, Inc. today announced its NetObjects Authoring Server Suite 3.0, a new product for controlled collaboration on corporate Intranet sites.

NetObjects Authoring Server Suite, (NAS) builds upon NetObjects TeamFusion, the company's collaborative Web authoring product.

NAS provides a collaborative environment designed to integrate the three groups of people most directly involved in building and maintaining corporate intranets: the departmental content producer, the Intranet web team, and the IS department. It includes an authoring server at its core, an administrator module, the NetObjects TeamFusion client and a Java-based content contributor.

Key new features include:

  • a FrontPage connector: enables end users to integrate their Office applications into the Intranet. It allows integration of legacy FrontPage pages, and enables users to continue to use their existing tool while taking advantage of the Authoring Server's controlled environment.
  • an open and secure server that supports industry-standard databases and operating systems.
  • an integrated asset management and remote administration system that simplifies collaboration.
  • the integration of the NetObjects Fusion 3.0 authoring client to provide Web teams access to the latest technologies such as DHTML, e-commerce applications and databases to build e-business Web sites.

NetObjects Authoring Server Suite is available through a network of authorized distributors and resellers as well as directly from NetObjects. The FrontPage Connector will be available within 90 days. For more information, visit the NetObjects Web site.
