Connecting people with software just got better...

Concursive has begun upgrading customers with ConcourseConnect 6. What's new is a focus on building modern web pages, easier customization and more options for mobile.
First off, we've redesigned our rendering engine with ZURB Foundation in mind. HTML output is now much simpler and cleaner. Our portal technology nests rows and columns, and uses the Foundation grid system to create powerful multi-device layouts quickly and easily. Foundation gives our sites a responsive framework so that web pages look good on desktop, tablets and phones. Implementing Foundation also allowed us to refresh our templates with a new, modern look. Under the covers there's Foundation web components and JQuery. We've updated the HTML content editor to TinyMCE's HTML5 editor. The Concursive image library plugin for TinyMCE has been redesigned with thumbnails and enhanced capabilities for colors, fonts and sizes. All of Connect's modules and portlets have been updated for Foundation.
Next, we wanted customers and partners to be able to customize Connect using configuration packs and plug-ins. Connect achieves this through run-time discovery of configuration files, components and portlets. Adding your own functionality has never been easier.
Finally, with ConcourseConnect 6 you can launch Apps, mobile-first. User registrations, user settings, push notifications and module functionality are all accessible via the restful API.
ConcourseConnect is the customizable and configurable platform for Connect Communities and Hubs. ConcourseConnect is also packaged for Concursive's Team Collaboration and Intranets and includes everything you need to start your own community.
