Migration and Customisation
Many of the high performance products available for Zope satisfy a large number of general customer requirements in their off-the-shelf state. One such example is the CMS Plone. However, even a standard product as capable as Plone cannot fulfil any and all customer demands. Accordingly, there usually arises a fairly substantial need for adjustment when new software is integrated.
Luckily, customisation work required for software based on Python, Zope and Plone is typically less than for other systems, since these technologies support the development of easily extensible modular systems. The cost-to-benefit ratio of making the necessary adjustments is thereby rendered highly attractive to the customer.
Our wealth of experience affords ZOPYX customers many benefits, most notably in the case of exacting assignments for which other service providers lack the necessary know-how. TextIndexNG and SmartPrintNG represent two particularly sophisticated extensions offered by ZOPYX for Zope and Plone. TextIndexNG is a highly enhanced search machine, while SmartPrintNG is a Plone extension that enables the export of content in Office formats like OpenDocument, PDF, RTF, WML and OOXML.
We have relied on Plone since 2005 for maintaining the team's web presence and for managing scientific projects at the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory.
Thanks to Andreas Jung's expertise, Plone migration was completed in a minimal amount of time and Plone products were adapted optimally to meet our requirements.
