RFV chooses Roxen CMS


26 January 2004

The National Social Insurance Board (RFV) has signed an agreement with Roxen Internet Software for using Roxen CMS to manage content on the intranet for social insurance administration. The primary reason for selecting Roxen is the need for a powerful and user-friendly editing environment as well as integration into an existing infrastructure.

The intranet has been operational since 1996 and targets approximately 17 000 users, out of which a group of about ten people work as editors keeping information updated. The intranet has grown to 13 000 web pages plus a large number of documents and consequently reached a level where its structure calls for more consideration and easier handling.

Roxen CMS stores content in XML format that allows future-proof information exchange with other systems. By deploying Roxen CMS RFV will gain functionality currently missing such as user-friendly editing, publishing management, access control and efficient content searching.

"We have wished for this functionality for a long time and are looking forward to its implementation," says Annalena Eriksson, responsible for the system at RFV. "Our editors will get a user-friendly and powerful tool which will result in higher content quality. It also contributes to improved communication among our employees."

Roxen CMS is a mature product that will bring significant savings for RFV in both implementation and operation costs. Accordingly, RFV can spend resources on content instead of development of custom software.

"We recognized the needs of RFV and were able to offer a solution in short time that no other supplier could match," says Staffan Ekholm, CEO of Roxen Internet Software AB. "Roxen's present task is to train RFV Data who will carry through the deployment."
