TERMINALFOUR is a developer and provider of a digital marketing and web content management systems (WCMS). It specializes in providing WCMS to educational institutions. The company has several offices, including a North American HQ in Boston, European HQ in Dublin, Sales offices in London and Asia-Pacific HQ in Sydney.[citation needed]

Company history[edit]

TERMINALFOUR was founded in 1996 by current CEO Piero Tintori. It competed principally in the Irish and UK markets before securing investment of €1.6 million in 2010[1] to support its strategy for international growth. This enabled it to “expand its focus to the US market in addition to Europe”.[1] In 2010, a United States office was opened in Boston. TERMINALFOUR clients include the Irish Central Statistics Office,[2] Permanent TSB, Specsavers, Aer Lingus[3] and over 100[citation needed] US and British government authorities and educational institutes.[citation needed]

In 2008, TERMINALFOUR created an extranet[4] that gives users a platform to share ideas, discuss the product and offer feedback.[citation needed]

Products[edit]

The company's principal product is TERMINALFOUR Site Manager. The aim of the product is make it really easy for organizations to deliver and manage very large, highly devolved, multilingual Websites, Intranets and Extranets. The company invested €900,000[5] in research and gathered extensive feedback from partners and incorporated it into the development of Site Manager 7.0. The launch of Site Manager 7.0 led to a “record breaking year”[6] for TERMINALFOUR. While the company still has a “stronghold”[6] within the UK and Irish markets, in 2011, the U.S. market accounted for 38% of new business revenue in the previous business year.

TERMINALFOUR Site Manager 7.2 (launched in April 2012) offers multi-platform support and allows thousands of content creators around the world to collaborate on projects by enabling web content management servers to talk to each other. The updated product received a favourable review[7] from industry watching website CMS Wire.

Criticism[edit]

As a proprietary product, TERMINALFOUR is seen by some adopters[who?] as expensive in terms of cost and security. In terms of cost, the "On premises" licence starts at $15,000 [8] with development of your custom CMS extra to this. In terms of security, since the source code is not made publicly available, it is impossible to know how secure the platform is, unlike with open source CMS solutions (which may be more or less secure).
