DotCMS Adds KonaKart Plug-In for WCM

dotCMS and KonaKart announced they have made the dotCMS/KonaKart plug-in available for general release by both organizations.

Earlier this year, the two companies announced a technical partnership to develop a Web Content Management (WCM)-driven eCommerce platform that merges shopping cart capabilities with a flexible and powerful WCM.

The plug-in wraps eCommerce functionality within the WCM templates, providing a common UI experience as a shopper moves from information-heavy pages to transactional pages. The plug-in also allows organizations to offer a comment function, product rating and cross-sell features on any transactional page – all out of the box.

The plug-in is the basis of the dotCMS ecommerce Accelerator: pre-built templates, structures and applications that are an expression of dotCMS’s and KonaKart’s insights into eCommerce and content presentation. The Accelerator represents the starting point for implementation, allowing enterprises to begin implementation with a running start instead of from a standstill.

“The lines between a great web experience and a transaction are quickly vanishing,” stated Will Ezell, CTO of dotCMS. “The integration between our two products allows our customers and prospects to deliver an uninterrupted experience for their site visitors, and in so doing increase their conversion rates.”

The eCommerce Accelerator will ship with dotCMS and above, and with KonaKart 5.0.0.x and above.
