Kentico CMS 4.0 Combines Content Management and Social Networking

Nashua, New Hampshire, USA, February 10, 2009 – Kentico Software (, a Web content management system vendor, announced the release of a new 4.0 version of Kentico CMS for ASP.NET. The new version combines full-featured Web content management with a powerful social networking platform.

Most of the new features in version 4.0 are focused on social networking and on-line communities. The new version of Kentico CMS targets companies that want to leverage Web 2.0 technologies by engaging their customers through blogs, forums, polls, wikis and focus groups. The latest release of Kentico CMS provides a complete set of features that organizations need to build state-of-the-art Web sites: content management, e-commerce and social networking.

The new Kentico CMS Social Networking Edition supports blogs, forums, polls, user-contributed content (wiki), groups, friends, message boards, media libraries, content rating and improved membership management. The new version also comes with a ready-to-use Community Starter Site that can be easily customized and cut the time and cost of web site development. It also supports content taxonomy based on tags and categories.

"Companies should look at on-line communities as a new, cost-effective way of marketing communication," says Petr Palas, Kentico founder and CEO. "Features like blogs, forums or on-line focus groups allow them to listen and talk to their clients in a more personal way. Running an on-line community costs a fraction of money they spend on traditional market research and marketing campaigns while providing a more accurate and immediate customer feedback and building customer loyalty."

Kentico will showcase the new Kentico CMS 4.0 at the AIIM Conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at booth 1348 and at Internet World London at booth E7004.
