We recently asked CAT preview users and colleagues in the content-related professions to tell us their experiences conducting and using content inventories.  It’s no surprise to learn that content inventories are a lot of work and people are looking for tools that can help save time and manual labor. How content inventories fit into our work Many people are using content inventories not only at the beginning of projects but perform inventories routinely as part of ongoing website maintenance a… Read More

With the CAT preview available for a week now, we've been able to learn some interesting things about who does content inventories and where they are, both geographically and professionally. We're very excited to see users from all over the world—the U.S., Australia, England, Brazil, Pakistan, Peru, Germany, Norway, Italy, The Netherlands, and more. Just as interesting—and gratifying—is to see the variety of organizations represented. Small and large agencies, universities, governmental organiz… Read More

Previously, we've written about how CAT provides solutions for content strategists, information architects, and site managers. Now we go more in-depth into some of the reasons you should consider using software tools to create content inventories, content audits, and do website content tracking. The value of a content inventory is in the data it returns——data that provides the foundation for a later audit or that enables tracking site content through time or through a migration or CMS project. … Read More

We asked a few of our friends and family to take an early pre-preview look at CAT and we're happy to stay that the response has been great. We're busily incorporating some tweaks in response to the great feedback we got, doing some fit-and-finish work, and generally gearing up for our preview release. We can't wait to show it to our preview audience! If you haven't signed up yet, there's still time. Go to the home page, enter your email, and you'll hear from us soon. Read More

Given that a month has passed since we broke the news about CAT, we thought an update might be in order. Just because we're quiet, it doesn't mean nothing's happening. We're like cats that way——stealthy. But unlike cats, our developers haven't been napping. They're hard at work, building the features that are going to make this tool indispensable. And if the feedback we've been getting from people at conferences and meetups is any indication, we're on the right track! So stay tuned; we'll be get… Read More
