Percussion CMS Services

Percussion offers two CMS solutions that are both built upon the same Java-based platform, but they serve different types of requirements. The first, CM System (formerly Rhythmyx), is a very powerful, flexible, customizable solution. It is capable of complex integrations and a completely customized architecture. This is an excellent choice if you need a solution that meets very specific needs, but it requires that specially trained developers architect and code all your current and future requirements into the system. By contrast, CM1 Version 2 has been designed to be much more out-of-the-box in its design. It captures all of the commonly desired features and functionality that most organizations are looking for. Additional functionality can be coded in by a specialized developer, but it is really designed for organizations that are looking for a solid WCMS application that is Java-based, and are not looking for a great deal of customization. It utilizes an easy-to-use interface that allows users to "build" pages by dragging and dropping in widgets (i.e.; a calendar, form, text block, etc.) onto a Page where they want it to display.

Regardless of whether you choose to Percussion CM System or Percussion CM1 Version 2, implementing a WCMS is not the same as a website redesign project. It requires a deep understanding of how to utilize the WCMS to its full potential. Ranked One provides you with a team of professionals who come to you with a long history of experience developing and using Percussion's CMSs, including when the solution was called Rhythmyx. We take that knowledge and provide you with the expertise you need to plan out how you will want to use Percussion CMSs today and into the future. Our experience allows us to point out any possible pitfalls, and steer you to success.

When choosing to move to either Percussion CMS, Ranked One, a Certified Partner, will be with you the whole way to ensure your website migration goes smoothly by providing you the following services:
