IXIASOFT and Oxygen Take Strategic Partnership to the Next Level

Press release from the issuing company

The Montreal-based software company IXIASOFT recently announced it is taking its partnership with Syncro Soft’s Oxygen products to the next level. This partnership is at the heart of the ongoing IXIASOFT CCMS web strategy.

“We’re thrilled to be able to work with a leading company like Oxygen to develop and further improve future versions of IXIASOFT CCMS Web,” says Eric Bergeron, CEO of IXIASOFT. “I’m excited to see this innovative partnership grow as we evolve our web platform.”

Created by Syncro Soft, Oxygen is the world’s leading expert in XML technology and single-source publishing. Oxygen XML Editor can be used in conjunction with all XML-based technologies, including a large variety of powerful tools for creating, editing, and publishing XML documents. Oxygen operates within the IXIASOFT CCMS solution. Together, they streamline the creation and publication of technical content using the DITA XML standard.

IXIASOFT customers are no stranger to Oxygen, which is embedded into the desktop client. This editor is a great ally that fully supports extensive technical documentation authors. IXIASOFT’s strategic decision to migrate its platform to the web makes Oxygen a crucial component to the process.

In recent years, when IXIASOFT introduced its CCMS Web for contributors and reviewers, it relied on Oxygen to provide a powerful DITA-compliant backend to a light and intuitive interface designed for non-DITA experts. This authoring interface hides the XML/DITA markup within IXIASOFT CCMS Web.

On September 5, 2019, IXIASOFT launched version 6.0 of its signature CCMS product. The version includes the search, unrestrained map, topic, and image edit, and new simple dialogs for easy content reuse. Oxygen is a key, integrated component of IXIASOFT CCMS Web 6.0. This partnership provides a second-to-none experience on the web for the technical writer—a big milestone for IXIASOFT.

“Authoring XML on the web is an emerging and very competitive area in our industry, so we are pleased to see that IXIASOFT decided to use our SDK technology, the Oxygen XML Web Author component, as the base for its web authoring solution,” says George Bina, owner of Syncro Soft and Oxygen XML Editor.

“This comes as no surprise because IXIASOFT needed a mature technology and the Oxygen web authoring support provided just that, being built on top of the core XML authoring functionality developed for more than 18 years in Oxygen.”
