Centralpoint goes beyond content management empowering you with a UXP (User Experience Platform). A user experience platform (or UXP) is an integrated set of technologies used to provide interaction between a user and a set of applications, processes, content, services or other users. A UXP has several components, including portals, mashup tools, content management, search, rich Internet application (RIA) tools, analytics, collaboration, social and mobile tools. It may be delivered as a suite of products or as a single product. The UXP market will fully emerge in 2013, seeded by the existing suite-oriented horizontal portal vendors.
When a Fortune
500 company sets out to build a user experience platform, much time and money can be wasted. The traditional ground up development model is little more than cobbling together disparate tools and functions to achieve a self service experience for their clients. This approach can cost millions of dollars -- and take many years to iron out. Oxcyon provide a complete user experience platform, out of the box, so clients do not need the risk of trying to build it themselves. Our approach provides immediate time to market, and shifts control from the technologists to the business owners.
Companies struggle to define and develop their web strategies. It often results in little more than several third-party applications cobbled together, working under a limited CMS. Instead, these features should all be part of the same solution, working in harmony. Centralpoint's Module Gallery features everything you need to deliver a comprehensive and proven world-class web strategy out of the box.
Centralpoint starts with your content management. We migrate your content -- which may include several microsites, each with their own URL and administrator -- to Centralpoint using our Data Transfer module. Then, we apply Responsive Design and crosswalks that relate disparate content together. Finally, we empower your users to log in by role via Single Sign On. These users can search, collaborate, and access your information through features such as: document management, forms management, dashboards, advertising, policies, online education, surveys, e-commerce, digital asset management, and more. Since all user activity is centrally managed, business intelligence and compliance reporting is easy.
Centralpoint offers you a complete web strategy, and then continually updates that strategy with Remote Updates to end obsolescence.
Centralpoint is Oxcyon's product that connects your information to the people at every level of your business.
Centralpoint is: Portals & Microsites
Think of Centralpoint as a “one-stop shop” for all your business websites. It not only provides a full set of tools that your people can use to create any kind of site, it also offers a single infrastructure that simplifies site management. From a team site for colleagues, to an extranet site for partners or clients, to an Internet site for customers, people can share and publish information using one familiar system. Centralpoint doesn’t charge license fees for new microsites or users, making it a much more cost effective solution than others on the market today.
Easily Share and Publish Information
Centralpoint sites are easy to deploy. In fact, the full set of features in Centralpoint sites can help anyone build a site from start to finish. Several out-of-the-box features provide instant value by helping a site owner build the first page right away. Still, other features make it simple to modify pages -- change content, add interaction, or apply a design theme. Novice or expert, anyone can quickly create, customize, and publish a site that looks great and meets a specific business need.

This new approach to search provides an experience that is highly personalized, efficient, and effective. As we like to say, "Search Relevance is Relative," which means it can be customized no matter what your users may require. Despite the robust algorithms we use, they, too, can be customized.
Find Content Faster
If your company is like most others, it has a lot of information in a lot of various formats. To help cut through the clutter, Centralpoint Search provides an interactive, visual search experience. Visual cues help people find information quickly, while refiners let them drill into the results and discover insights.
