Social Commenting and Sharing

Member Based Paywall System
The ability to control access to specific content sections and site features is built into our core software. When managing this access becomes tedious, our add-on modules for Subscription management and E-Commerce let you put that on autopilot and get back to growing your business.
Amazon S3 Integration for File Storage
Cloud-based services have introduced economies of scale that have driven down the cost of file storage and computing. Our software integrates with cloud-based solutions such as Amazon's S3 (Simple Storage System) to reduce your cost of site ownership with lower storage and bandwidth costs.
It's still common to hear stories of of online news operations that are paralyzed by tragic data loss. Site backups are just part of our service and are always there in case disaster strikes in the form of human error or hardware malfunctions.
When customers purchase our software services, they're purchasing more than a static set of features. Our software development process is ongoing and we release regular updates to improve the features and address any bugs or security issues.
Professional Customer Support
Anyone who has ever used open-source or custom-built software has experienced the frustration of needing help with a simple feature or a quick answer to a question and having no where to go. That's just not the case with our services. We pride ourselves on providing customers with professional support using a combination of online FAQs, phone, email and online support ticket systems.
Revenues & Costs
A Bondware site will add to your bottom-line in the following ways. Our powerful pay-wall features can limit access to paying customers. Customers can access the news headlines via the site and email newsletters, but attempts to access the full story can prompt the customer to subscribe. Customers can subscribe to your publication on the website 24/7 without requiring staff time to process. Customers can also buy other things directly on the site such as classified ads, special publications, etc.
Our SmartAd module provides the tools to setup and track display ads around your news content. Many of our newspaper customers find that they can cover the cost of their website by doing "one simple thing". Any other income or cost savings from the website goes straight to the bottom-line. The "one simple thing" is to sign up for Google Ad Sense (Adwords Network) as a publisher & add code to your article templates to rotate ads on each page. Google will crawl those pages regularly and serve up ads that relate to the content for higher click through.
