Enfocus Revamps Its Crossroads Website
Enfocus enriched the Enfocus Crossroads community by launching a redesigned www.crossroads-world.com website.
Launched in 2007, Enfocus Crossroads is the online community around Enfocus Switch. It brings together Enfocus Switch users, Crossroads partners and Crossroads integrator partners. The original community name 'Crossroads' received a subtle change to Enfocus Crossroads, to emphasize that it is fully endorsed by Enfocus and in close relationship with the Crossroads partners.
"We wanted to bring Enfocus and Crossroads closer together and emphasize that Crossroads is backed by Enfocus. Of course the aim is still to provide a neutral platform around the Enfocus Switch automation solution," explained Fabian Prudhomme, vice president. "The new functionalities of the website have been carried out to help us to extend the scope of Crossroads and to react to the needs of our user community."
In addition, Enfocus recently appointed Angelo Manno into the new role of account manager of the Crossroads program. "I'm very excited to be working closely with all the different Enfocus Crossroads partners, and help extend the Enfocus Crossroads community by introducing new partners to our growing Enfocus Switch user base. The new additions to the Enfocus Crossroads website are a valuable asset for all members," he said.
Important new features include a new content management system for greater flexibility and future expansion, a new user forum, and provision for blogs from partner organizations. Both users and partners are now able to upload their created Switch flows directly to Enfocus Crossroads so they can be shared with all other members.
With Enfocus Crossroads as an online meeting point for Enfocus Switch users and partners, the new user forum and partner blogs will encourage interaction between all members. Switch users can learn from other users and partners, and apply best practices to their own organization. Manno explained, "Enfocus Crossroads is a neutral platform bringing together different types of partners. We feel it's important to give our partners a separate discussion platform, away from the Enfocus website."
