Crafter Rivet provides enterprises with an open source framework for building and managing the dynamic Web experience for all types of content-rich applications, including next-generation enterprise websites, mobile applications, intranets, social community platforms, and more. Crafter Rivet provides both an authoring and publishing application (Crafter Studio), and a high-performance content delivery system (Crafter Engine). Crafter Studio provides a comprehensive set of a user-friendly yet powerful features for marketers and other content editors that include dashboards, WYSIWYG authoring, in-context preview, workflow, analytics, and multi-channel publishing, among others. Crafter Engine consumes content published from Crafter Studio and provides developers with the foundation for quickly building high-performance, flexible Web and mobile applications. Built as an enterprise-grade JEE platform using Spring, Crafter Rivet provides a solid infrastructure that not only integrates well with enterprise systems and deployment infrastructure, but also supports a full-range of presentation-tier technologies including lightweight scripting and REST-based APIs. Built on Alfresco, the leading open platform for content management, Crafter Rivet offers not only a rich application feature-set, but also the robust set of content management services and extensible framework that only Alfresco provides.

- Integrated Marketing Analytics
