Content Management: The Next Generation?

RightWorks and Cardonet in pursuit of automation

NEW YORK  PRNewswire  December 19, 2000  Lately, the Holy Grail of content management solutions has been the pursuit of automation. The high maintenance of e-catalogs has inspired some e-business application providers to try and develop a way for new data to be integrated and automated into a catalog system, eliminating complex upkeep.

Today, RightWorks Corporation, an e-business application provider, teamed up with the catalog content management provider, Cardonet, in a partnership aimed at providing automated content management. The agreement will allow RightWorks to resell the Cardonet Content Factory as an addition to the RightWorks eBusiness Application Suite. This is an expansion of their current partnership, under which the Cardonet Content Factory is integrated with the RightWorks Open Commerce Network, an open horizontal exchange and virtual aggregation portal.

The new arrangement enables RightWorks and Cardonet to deliver their e-business application to suppliers, corporations and net market makers in need of catalog content management. Together, they claim to offer customers an integrated, automated application solution that eliminates the complexity of managing catalog content.

The combined offering of Cardonet Content Factory and the RightWorks eBusiness Application Suite will ensure that online marketplaces and corporate procurement managers have a powerful solution for assembling and maintaining the consistent up-to-date product and pricing information needed for an efficient browsing, product discovery and buying process, said Itay Meiri, CEO of Cardonet. Early entrants in B2B e-commerce faced challenges bringing their procurement processes online due to ineffective or non-existent content management strategies. We're excited to be participating in a solution that enables organizations to triumph over these challenges.
