  • (1888PressRelease) December 20, 2012 - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - "We are pleased to see so many of our partners using our Kentico Upgrade Utility to quickly and easily upgrade to Kentico CMS 7," said Petr Palas, CEO and founder of Kentico Software. "Whether you're a developer or marketer, the automatic upgrade option guides you through the upgrade process every step of the way."

    Generally available since September, Kentico CMS 7 adds marketing automation, more efficient mobile website development, and several new enterprise features-including Visual Workflow Designer and Translation Management-to Kentico's powerful CXM solution.

    "We were very eager to upgrade to Kentico CMS 7 to leverage the marketing automation, lead scoring and personalization features," said Manoj Shah, Digital Services Director at Pull Digital, a full-service online marketing agency. "Even with our high volume of custom modules, we were able to upgrade relatively quickly, thanks to Kentico's helpful hot fixes and responsive support."

    Kentico CMS 7 is a complete CXM solution and is currently the only one offered both on-premise and as a service in the Windows Azure cloud. Transparent licensing, ease of use and a comprehensive feature set make Kentico CMS 7 the enterprise-class CMS for the masses-benefiting both small businesses running in the shared hosting environment and global corporate sites running on web farms.

    "The experience of upgrading to Kentico CMS 7 was a good one," said Brian McKeiver, Partner and Senior Developer at BizStream, a provider of software that streamlines business productivity. "With Kentico CMS 7, we can create dynamic websites at a pace no other product can match. By combining content management with a marketing engine, Kentico has created a silver bullet that will drive a ton of growth for us in 2013."

    Customers and partners have two options when upgrading to Kentico CMS 7. To use the Kentico Upgrade Utility, users can either download the Upgrade.exe file from the Kentico website or run the Kentico Installation Manager Utility. Users who do not have direct access to the Kentico server can also upgrade manually by following the instructions on the PDF file included with the upgrade.

    "So far, upgrading our customers to CMS 7 has been a surprisingly easy process," said Dave Conder, CTO of BlueModus, a provider of web enablement solutions and services. "A powerful, rapid development and deployment platform, CMS 7 is great for global brands, because it's easy to use, multi-cultural, and highly scalable. One customer of ours in particular is lauding what Kentico is able to do for multimedia and social media environments."
