Kentico Software, the Web Content and Customer Experience Management provider, today announced the release of Kentico 8.2, featuring several new collaboration and ecommerce enhancements that make launching and managing digital marketing campaigns faster and easier than ever.
The latest product enhancements include:
Bi-Directional SharePoint Synchronization
Kentico’s new SharePoint Integration module accelerates cooperation between collaborators while facilitating better file sharing. With Kentico’s new bi-directional SharePoint synchronization feature, all changes made in Kentico will be made automatically on the SharePoint server. Just point and share your files are always up to date, and everyone has the latest versions.
Easy Shipping Calculations
With shipping costs affected by order value, size, weight, geography, shipping provider, and customer, providing shipping discounts and free delivery to certain customers can be difficult to calculate. One-size-fits-all solutions simply won’t do. With Kentico, you can now easily create a shipping module (and reuse for other projects) that presents all the tools you need to calculate shipping costs in your own custom user interface.
Enhanced Contact Management
The Contact Management module in Kentico provides a 360-degree view of all your website visitors and customers as well as their behavior across all channels and devices. If you are using multiple tools to manage your leads, contacts and recipients, it can be a headache to sync them, import them and reuse them across all the platforms in use. With Kentico 8.2, you can easily import Contacts from a CSV file, segment them, and leverage them in the system.
All Kentico 8.2 improvements include:
o Modules improvements
