Web Crossing, a communications software provider for online collaboration and community, has announced Team Crossing 2.0.
Team Crossing is a specialized implementation of the Web Crossing engine optimized and configured especially for intranet and workgroup use. A Team Crossing site will contain a top-level portal-like desktop area for each user, a general public discussion area and an unlimited number of open or access-controlled project areas. Also, users can run e-mail lists, give each user an e-mail box and serve static or dynamic HTML pages. You can
download a Mac OS/OSX
or Unix Web Crossing server to install a Team Crossing 30 day demo server.
Version 2.0 of Team Crossing adds a fully localizable user and host interface, expanded look and feel customization features, and new custom positioning for optional site elements. The product is now fully localizable in as many languages as a host chooses to provide translations, implemented across all end-user and host pages, including discussion areas, user calendar, Webmail, and more, according to Tim Lundeen, president and CEO of Web Crossing. Hosts provide translations using the simple spreadsheet-based localization system. Users can now choose to view Team Crossing in their preferred language from those the host supports, he added.
Team Crossing 2.0 implements site-wide wrapper settings that are designed to make it easy to add and rearrange custom menus or content blocks, swap the nav column location between right and left sides, and more, all within browser-based administration pages that implement the changes immediately for the entire site. Other look and feel customization features in version 2.0 include new options for resizing the nav menu or content cells, a new optional third-column cell containing sysop-defined HTML, new color setting options and more.
Team Crossing 2.0 is a free upgrade to all registered Team Crossing 1.x users. Otherwise, it’s available licensed either on a per-seat or traffic basis. Team Crossing is also available to test drive for 30-days risk free with an 1T Evaluation license. And it’s also available as a server hosted (ASP) solution for optimal uptime, starting at US$65 per month with an add-on option for SSL. Customization and Community Management Consulting is available for all Web Crossing licensed and server hosted installations. Priority support is available on an annual subscription basis.
