With the founding of censhare Italia srl in Verona - shortly after establishing the Swiss branch in Zurich - the Munich based software house CoWare AG is consistently advancing the development of the company. The aim is to achieve an optimal positioning with regard to the requirements of the national markets.

censhare offers the technical foundation for the creation of homogeneous information and publishing platforms for every type of print and online output. All media assets of a company can be administrated from a central instance, and can be processed in cooperation with external service providers and partners in a tailored manner according to the specific media channels employed.
In this way, the censhare system takes on the central role in process-driven planning, production and publication of contents of all types.
At the heart of the system is a high performance XML-based Media Asset Management System that organizes the media neutral storage and archiving of all data formats, and thereby acts as a central content pool. This content pool supports all media channels, whether print, web, TV or mobile services. censhare has interfaces to advertisement, agency and make-up systems, as well as to CRM, ERP and eShop systems.
The linking of the Editorial System with the integrated Web Content Management System for the parallel generation of print and online content represents a special censhare highlight.
censhare offers efficient automation mechanisms for market oriented publication: graded variant management down to the content level, as well as translation management for the processing of translations based on text variants, ensure the rapid provision of information and publications. A Product Information Management (PIM) system is available for the placement of product information, and enables information to be aggregated, generated, administrated and placed in WYSIWYG mode.
Numerous internal and external content suppliers must be integrated in cross media publishing, while sensitive content must be protected at the same time. censhare regulates access to the workflow by way of an authorization concept that can be fine-tuned and flexibly differentiated according to the corporate structures and offers the respective technical security standards.
