The v4.0 release of kNEWS Professional includes:

  • Integration with Gallatin's Mail Bounce Assistant™ (MBA) application %%More configurable options %%Simplified administration %%Improved performance

"The combination of kNEWS and MBA will save customers time and effort by identifying different types of e-mail bounces and then automatically removing subscribers whose e-mail addresses are no longer valid," noted Gallatin's President, David Brehe.

kNEWS combines electronic communications capabilities with web content management functionality to provide a publishing platform that is very useful for organizations in government, hi-tech, education, and manufacturing. These organizations often need a system that: brings integrity and repeatability to the communications and publishing processes, can be managed by business users, and requires minimal ongoing support from IT.

Sample Use of kNEWS -- Improving Communications with Constituents

Chandler citizens may subscribe to receive road construction updates, news, and event information, Center for the Arts announcements, agenda notices and e-newsletters from other City departments. Also, when new content is released to the City website in these different content categories, Chandler can notify citizens and show them exactly where the information is located. kNEWS is helping Chandler improve constituent communications and drive more frequent use of its website.
