DNN Announces New Liquid Content Channels for Omnichannel Publishing

Assemble Content and Publish Seamlessly to Devices, Apps, Social Channels and Websites

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 26, 2017 – Today, DNN Software announces an assortment of new channels in Liquid Content™, the omnichannel publishing system central to its Evoq CMS. With the general availability of Evoq 9.1, Liquid Content can seamlessly publish to devices such as Amazon Echo, and applications such as Facebook Messenger, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

The new Liquid Content channels help marketers surface content to customers when and where it’s needed. Marketers need a CMS that’s adaptable and fluid, as consumption patterns shift from websites to apps to Internet of Things (IoT).

“As devices and channels proliferate, and as voice search becomes more prominent, marketers need a CMS that can create content once and have it published to any channel. This helps them reach customers wherever they happen to be,” said Navin Nagiah, CEO of DNN Software.

According to Mick MacComascaigh, Research VP and Jim Murphy, Research Director at Gartner Research, “Web content management (WCM) is now regarded as a mission-critical component for many solutions that support digital business strategies. Application leaders that focus only on the short-term requirements of simple content management and delivery on a single channel without considering mid to long term functionality growth will meet the biggest challenges when trying to choose the most suitable product.”

Last week, DNN showed the industry the ongoing evolution of its product line through Evoq 9. The new release continue's DNN's journey to be more than CMS company as it reaches beyond websites to apps, devices, and other Internet of Things.

Evoq 9's goal is to deliver omnichannel publishing via a microservices architecture. To make this happen, Evoq 9 includes Liquid Content, a new Content as a Service platform that is delivered as a service via DNN’s cloud platform, Liquid Content Cloud. Features included in Liquid Content:
