Content Input Forms - Content input forms allow Site Managers to create, edit and maintain forms for Content Authors to use. These forms are extremely versatile and allow the site to be customized for any layout.
Content Scheduler - The Content Author's interface in VIOMA allows content to be published at a scheduled time, for a scheduled amount of time. This makes it possible to have content rotate on a weekly - or even hourly - schedule automatically.
CSS Layout - Using Cascading StyleSheets (CSS) adds configurable styles to a webpage that can be completely changed - without changing any of your webpages - simply by replacing the stylesheet.
Customizable Interface - VIOMA Content Manager 4.0 includes branding, which allows the VIOMA interface to be customized visually to resemble your company's existing style.
Cut and Paste - VIOMA allows authors to cut and paste directly in the editing window.

Dynamic Content - Webpages are generated at the time of viewing from content in the repository, allowing content, images, and links to be generated dynamically from business logic, a news feed, or other data sources.
Dynamic Menus - Non-technical users can easily create and update your website's menus using forms-based interfaces.
Dynamic Sitemap - Using Business Logic, the sitemap for a website can be dynamically generated upon page viewing to provide the most up-to-date navigation for your site.

Indexing/Searching - VIOMA includes a title-searching capability and all content is indexed and sorted into folders upon upload. You can search for content objects in the content list by writing a specific object name or a part of an object name.
Layout Manager - VIOMA uses industry-standard XHTML templates to define the look and feel of the site, ensuring consistency and reusability. Using templates, the entire look and feel of the site can be changed instantly and simply.
Localization - By separating design from content, the same site can easily be represented and managed in multiple languages.
Meta Tags - When users create or edit content, the information is automatically coded with the appropriate, predefined meta tags and stored as XML metadata in the content repository. Authors are then free to concentrate on content.
Multiple Sites - One VIOMA server can maintain and coordinate multiple independent sites.

Personalization - The content manager can personalize displayed web content for different viewer groups.
Preview Content - Updated or created content can be easily previewed before publishing inside of VIOMA.

Syndication (RSS) - VIOMA allows RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds to be included in webpages.

Upload HTML - The Upload Tool can automatically upload entire websites comprised of static pages and other content.
Upload/Extract Tools - Upload and Extract tools are useful for bulk migration of content into and out of the repository, and are used for uploading to a different server or just to back up the system.

Versioning - Versioning allows site content and design to be restored, either page-by-page or the entire site.
Visitor Profiling - The system can track visitors that log on to the site, record browsers, and operating system, paths they visit on the site, for how long, time of the day, etc, and dynamically tailor content for their interest.
Website Rollback - The Rollback Manager creates a backup version of updated content and design. This backup can be restored at a future date with Versioning or Undo.
Workflow Manager - The Workflow Manager controls workflow such that only users with appropriate permissions can update a website. Content is published according to its publishing dates and the staging access-rights of the author. Using workflow, sites can require editorial approval of content before publishing online.
