Jadu launches in the U.S. and takes web transactional technology to the global market

Jadu, a leading European provider of transactional web content management (WCM), has launched its U.S. business - Jadu, Inc., at eduWeb’s Chicago conference for Higher Education Institutions.

Jadu is a global web content management software provider that specialises in delivering transactional web platforms for Higher Education, Government, Not for Profit (NFP) and Commercial organisations, providing enterprise web and information architectures, intranets and extranets. Jadu has been providing web content management systems to a large number of UK based public and private sector organisations since 2001.

Jadu is the first enterprise partner that Google selected to work with in the UK, with the Google Search Appliance (GSA) and Google Mini as standard search components to the Jadu WCM system.  Jadu's second largest US based partner, Rackspace, provides its managed services and SaaS (Software as a Service) offerings to the company's many Government customers.

The functionality of Jadu's transactional web platform has been shaped around Enterprise 2.0 and social media. It is one of the first CMS systems to deploy personalisation, blogging, social media, podcasting, image, video content and brand management as standard features. 

In addition, Jadu provides an easy to use and non-technical solution; outstandingly low cost open data architecture; powerful and extensible rapid online forms development; open data architecture with MyJaduAPI and a revolutionary CMS delivery platform with Jadu Galaxies.  It is one of the few CMS Platforms in existence that is available as a .NET solution as well as PHP.

Richard Friend, Global Business Manager for Jadu says:

"We are very proud to be shipping Jadu to the North American market and are looking forward to working with the many customers we are already in dialogue with. Our grounding in Government and Higher Education makes Jadu a perfect fit for large US and Canadian organisations."

"I am extremely excited to bring the Jadu Web transactional platform to the United States and Canadian markets.  The way Jadu technologies combine raw horsepower with extreme ease-of-use for non-technical web editors is unmatched in its versatility, extendability and scalability in the worldwide Web content management market.  Jadu CMS, based on open data standards, is also one of the very few CMS platforms that can run on a LAMP stack in PHP or Microsoft .NET in C# making it one of the most versatile CMS Platforms on the market".
