Site updates are performed simply and quickly with an intuitive editor. The ease of use both reduced training needs and enabled editors to work effectively.
Inigo was designed for full search engine accessibility. This has proven to be remarkably effective with the Latest News items regularly appearing on the first page of major search engines.
Inigo provides advanced metadata capability that allows information to be linked together in intuitive ways, for example, partners can automatically be linked to related information and latest news items automatically appear in selected areas of the website.
The operation of the 'Early Warning' email newsletter has been vastly simplified compared to the previous system. Inigo prevents the sending of duplicate emails and allows targeting of emails by declared interest so that subscribers only receive relevant information. Essential functionality is automated to improve the level of service and this includes the automatic inclusion of an unsubscribe link and ability to send text or HTML email based on the subscriber's preference.
Inigo has been highly successful at Swan Turton. It allows one web editor to control a complex website and send thousands of email newsletters in minimal time. It has also provided the flexibility to extend and change the website without interrupting day-to-day operation and has successfully met all the goals that were set at the start of the project.
