Headquartered in Woburn, MA, Percussion Software offers Percussion CMS (CM1) that allows its users to control the website according to their requirements. “Percussion CMS gives marketers ownership of the website to make their content marketing efforts more effective,” says Somol.

In one instance, Norfolk State University (NSU) initially had eight websites that were managed by a small web team and subcontractors. As the demand from students in the university increased, the number of websites also rose up to 200. This became a challenge for NSU to manage these many websites with a small team. Also, the university scattered the management of websites among content creators who used traditional methods to update the websites. As a result, the managers began to abandon websites when they were unable to perform cumbersome technical operations. The client decided to onboard Percussion’s tailored training and assistance to manage all their websites under NSU as well as comprehensively manage daily updates. “Percussion CMS met all of our requirements with the ability to manage multiple sites, countless users, and provide an environment where day-to-day content management is entirely code free,” explains Debbie Jones, Norfolk State University Webmaster.

In the days to come, Percussion Software plans to revise Rythmyx’s platform, java applet technology, as the java based applications are fading away with time. Further, the firm will continue to release regular updates for all the software solutions it provides in order to deliver best-in-class solutions in web content management landscape.
