Frequently asked questions

What IT skills do I need?

None. We do all the IT work behind the scenes. The system is just there: we switch it on; you use it. For functional purposes, it’s just a website. If you can browse a website, you can use Phrontex.

How reliable is the system?

Very. The system is hosted in top-end data centers that guarantee (and usually exceed) 99.9% uptime.

Can I control who sees what content?

Yes. There is fine-grained control over who can see which menus, page types, and pages. You can set up your own access schemes, for example by role (eg, owners, managers, employees, contractors, suppliers) or by department (eg, manufacturing, customer service, human resources) then control access to users based on any combination of these.

Can I download my content?

Yes. You can download any selection of pages to create PDFs or ePub format ebooks. PDFs can be used if you need to produce hard-copy manuals (eg, for regulatory submission), or to produce client documents like tenders and proposals. PDFs created from the system are fully formatted documents (not screen shots) with title page, table of contents, and headers and footers. ePub documents can be used if you need to provide system content to users who do not have internet access.

Will the system work on tablets and phones?

Yes. The system layout is ‘responsive’, meaning that it adapts to the size of the user’s display. For example, on a desktop-sized display the menu is shown on the left of screen; at tablet-size display or smaller, the menu is hidden, displayed only on request.

We already have a document management system. Why do we need Phrontex?

Phrontex is a content management system. Document management systems manage physical artefacts that contain information: Word documents, PDFs, presentations, and so on. A content management system manages the information itself. A document management system gives you a library. Phrontex gives you a single, integrated body of knowledge.
