Only Oxcyon can Prove it!
Oxcyon is the only vendor able to prove its capabilities, eliminating your risk, thanks to the largest Out-of-the-Box Module Gallery of market ready tools. This means that we can build a high fidelity prototype of your project, before you sign a contract. Of course, this prototype will not be completely ready for launch, but will prove nearly 95% of your needs, and sometimes introduce new functionality you've never even considered yet. Centralpoint is one of those technologies you have to see to believe. Click for Video
Oxcyon believes that beyond checking off your RFP list of functions, vendors need to show you the long term strategy during the first meeting. If they cannot show you the road ahead, they are merely struggling to keep up. Frankly, you shouldn't even need to tell a vendor what you need. They should quickly figure it out, and provide more than you think you need. Oxcyon will build a solution just for you, which may exceed your expectations.
Since no other vendor can actually prove it, why believe them? Centralpoint means completely eliminating your risk in selecting a technology. Pretty huge.

Centralpoint supports SSO (AD/LDAP/SAML) and the consumption of web services, and can expose web services to allow your local development team to integrate any way they like.
Centralpoint provides developer support, well documented code and SDK, and even source code (where applicable) empowering your development team to do whatever they need, whilst keeping you up to date with the most current menu of options to work with.
What is the Centralpoint Wheel?
The Centralpoint Wheel is a little lofty but very real. It illustrates how information begins at the center, or central point of your organization. That content moves from the center 'through' your distributors to reach your end users. We call this B2B2C. That is just the first leg of the omnichannel journey. The return trip is the collection of those user's interaction with the information you have pushed to them, resulting in harvested business intelligence which is returned to you live. What we call C2B2B. This makes Centralpoint more than a one way trip, rather it is ecosystem, of ever re circulated information between you and those that distribute it or need it. It puts you at the central point of communicating (and interacting) with everyone. To fully appreciate the scalability, please Watch this Video
Centralpoint Products & LIcenses

Centralpoint-to-go allows you to license our entire Module Gallery (including data transfer) to add functionality to your existing enterprise. In this way, you can quickly deploy robust functionality, linking our tools into your existing sites. Centralpoint to go does not support microsite creation, and offers limited support. Many clients license this simply to gain access to our Data Transfer tools, enabling them to migrate and massage data between any disparate systems.

An Intelligent Alternative to Sharepoint
You need a more intelligent, singular database, not a database for every department within Sharepoint. When you think about the database architecture of Sharepoint, it is hard to justify that anything is shared. Documents are instead locked away into individual databases to die. Centralpoint provides an intelligent database design, which considers your N-tiered distribution of microsites, departments and roles. With this architecture, features like DITA and true knowledge management become a reality. Please see below the true cost of ownership illustration of Sharepoint. It is not the cost of the license, it is the costs 'beyond' which make Centralpoint a cost effective and more intelligent long term solution. If you view our module gallery, it is not even a fair comparison. Besides securely storing your data, we also manage the user experience of what your members do with it.
We understand that phasing out multiple systems is not that easy. For a variety of reasons, clients are sometimes stuck with certain application, or are under contract to keep it for many years.
For these clients, we recommend Centralpoint-To-Go, empowering you to install locally, so that you may take advantage of our entire Module Gallery right away; turbo charging your existing enterprise. In this scenario, Centralpoint can still serve the right content to the right user (within your environment) leveraging our Global Login module (in reverse) to do so. Centralpoint-To-Go allows you to embed Centralpoint into your environment immediately, yet still serve the right content or modules to the right user. Centralpoint can act as a SAML Service Provider (SP) via Global Login and/or a SAML Identity Provider (IdP) via Deep Links. This set up is custom set up per client, as each environment is completely different. Although SAML 2.0 is a standard, each installation, controlling authentication, is unique.
Centralpoint-To-Go empowers you with the entire Module Gallery including: Forms, Reporting, Business Intelligence, Workflow, Online Education, Email Broadcasting, and more that your current enterprise might now offer today. Learn more about Centralpoint-To-Go.
