Pensions Board to use pTools to manage site

28 Sep 2007

The Pensions Board has revealed it will use software developed by pTools for a range of multi-language content management and compliance initiatives.

The Pensions Board website, which recently released its online pensions calculators in seven languages, is already available in Irish and English and new initiatives will further enhance this multi-language content availability.

The pTools programming interface allows development for any language format with core content management features now available in 22 languages including major European languages.

PTools’ multi-site functionality allows re-use of content across multiple site locations from a single repository, while maintaining all the necessary workflow and compliance rules demanded of enterprise level initiatives. It deploys to Microsoft SQL and Oracle databases and enables content management professionals to use the pTools programming interface and development tools to deliver solutions for intranets, extranets and internet applications.

PTools recently deployed its software in the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs, Kilkenny County Council and the Department of An Taoiseach.

“PTools content management software allows us to easily manage, quickly publish and accurately control content across our site. The recent development of the calculators feature in the seven main languages used in Ireland should benefit many visitors and we expect to develop this aspect of the site further,” commented David Malone, head of information services with The Pensions Board.

“This feature set is now available to pTools users to develop multi-language, multi-site deployments that are fully compliant and standards based,” said Tom Skinner, managing director, pTools. “This is rapidly becoming a default for organisations who want to engage diverse internal and external audiences. Here in Ireland there are demands for multi-language functionality that reflect rapidly changing demographics and pTools is working with customers to provide the software needed to handle this content management challenge.”
