Kentico 11 Is Here! Is It Right For You?

kentico 11

Kentico just released a new version of their content management system. Here are some of the new features that make it upgrade-worthy:

EVEN SMARTER SEARCH

Kentico 11 improves upon the existing Smart Search capabilities by adding support for Azure Search indexes, which means your existing site content can benefit from Azure’s features, including highlighting, scoring profiles, and faceted search, among others. Developing site search will be easier than ever before!

EMAIL MARKETING UPDATES

Kentico 11 gives you a new way of creating marketing emails with the Email Builder, which uses widgets with dynamic content and a simple drag-and-drop interface. You can quickly and easily review HTML and create plain text versions directly in the email application. Kentico 11 also offers more robust email reporting so that you can track open and click rates and manage unsubscribes to keep your mailing lists clean.

SUPPORT FOR GDPR COMPLIANCE

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation on the protection and free movement of personal data of all individuals within the European Union. The regulation is effective starting May 25, 2018 and applies to organizations that collect or process data from EU residents or cooperate with EU-based organizations that process the data on their behalf. Kentico 11 helps organizations with compliance through managing and storing personal data and configuring consent mechanisms on your site, and offers an out-of-the-box GDPR opt-in web part.

INCREASED INTEGRATION

Kentico 11 offers improved integrations with UCommerce and Salesforce CRM, which allow you to use the features of these solutions directly within your Kentico interface. This means less custom development to create a seamless experience (for both users and administrators), and access to proven solutions that your organization is already using.

IMPROVED ECOMMERCE

Kentico 11 includes updated features within its own ecommerce capabilities that will simplify setting up and managing online sales. The cart calculation engine has been updated to streamline the process of setting up products, discounts, taxes, and rounding, and it offers overrides in case the core functionality doesn’t quite meet your needs. Kentico 11 also offers delayed payment capture without customization.
