We have experience in working with the latest Social Networking functionality built into Ektron and enhancing it with bespoke development.  Ektron was selected as a partner as its core offering  was a good feature rich Content Management System with plenty of Web 2.0 modules and the new Social Networking features. Using the CMS functionality a content rich site can be built relatively quickly by our Ektron Consultants. Ektron Taxonomy, ratings and comments add functionality to articles.

Our Work

We have customised Ektron and used the API's to amoungst other things:

  • Integrate Google Maps for producing directories with map search facility.
  • Use XML and Ektron to manage the directory entries which can also be exported as XML back into Quark to produce print directories.
  • Introduce Itinerary functionality allowing users to post not just where they are on a map but also an itinerary of where they will be on certain dates.
  • Google Mapping extends the “Find Friends” to look for friends who maybe in a certain place on a certain date with Ektron’s built in messaging allowing the users to communicate.
  • Ektron’s blog posts and a bespoke Photo and Video Gallery can be mapped to an Itinerary so that users can follow other users around over time and locations to keep track on their travels.
    The "Who - Where - When" principal.
  • Integrate Microsoft CRM into directory and membership functionality.
  • Integrate banner advert systems driven off Keywords, Ektron Taxonomy and Location to serve highly targeted banner traffic.
  • Display home page User Generated Content with Active Members, Latest Blogs, Videos and Photos
  • Add user rating systems to categorise the Ektron Membership based on completeness of profile, number of photos, videos, blogs friends etc
