CONTEXT: Why should I use FORIS?
FORIS contains several components. Many of those are aimed at "keeping track of stuff" or more formally correct expressed as: "enables users to maintain and update large amounts of structured content". With the help of FORIS users can maintain meetings information, contacts, duty travels and so forth.
FORIS is built in way so this information is easily to publish onto one or several web sites. The system also contains a web publishing module (content management system CMS), making it easy to create and maintain web sites.
Using FORIS, it is possible to publish information onto a web site implicitly, while the main aim is to keep information updated, information needed for the efficient work of the concerned unit. With this mindset, web publishing is a side effect of doing regular work.
In short: FORIS enables efficient information processing, shares the burden of web publishing and empowers its site owners. Learn more.
