Akmin's SiteGalore implements Six-Sigma Quality Framework
Akmin, the makers of SiteGalore and the leading provider of online website building software now extend their commitment to quality a step further by complementing their ISO 9001:2000 certified processes with a robust Six-Sigma framework
Dec 01, 2005

Akmin (www.akmin.com), the leading provider of private branded online website building software SiteGalore (www.sitegalore.com) for ISPs, Webhosts, Domain Registrars, ASPs and other service providers has implemented the time-tested Six-Sigma methodology for ensuring the continual improvement and maintaining the highest quality standards for its online website building software.

The DMAIC approach that Akmin has adopted is focused on maximizing the competitive advantage for its customers and involves a structured, data-driven approach to identifying key performance indicators, managing processes, quantifying problems, increasing product quality and reducing costs.

Prashanth, CEO of Akmin says, "Given the fact that we are the first ever company in our line of business to launch an enterprise-wide Six-Sigma framework, we are certain that this initiative will delight our customers, who are looking to maximize their competitive advantage by offering a site building service that is truly unmatched in its quality.”

In its run up towards the successful implementation, Akmin has already trained its key employees through a rigorous 4-month Six-Sigma Black-belt training handled by qualified Six-Sigma specialists. Over the next One Year period, Akmin plans to deploy several Black Belts into every corner of the company in an effort to re-engineer the major processes in every function and discipline.

The present Six-Sigma implementation was pretty much in line with the media expectations given the fact the Akmin recently achieved a rare quality distinction by passing KPMG’s ISO 9001:2000 Quality Surveillance Audit without a single minor non-conformity for the 4th time in succession.

Apollo Hosting selects SiteGalore Website Builder
Oct 17, 2005

Apollo Hosting, one of the top hosting service providers, has decided to implement Akmin’s SiteGalore (sitegalore.com) in an effort to offer a successful website building service to replace its existing site building tool. Akmin’s SiteGalore is the highly acclaimed browser-based do-it-yourself website building tool used by large to mid-sized service providers to tap the fast growing online website building market more effectively, and is designed to be a meaningful value-add for the small business user.

Prashanth, CEO Akmin Technologies says, “Unlike the domain or hosting business which has become highly commoditized, the success or failure of any site building service depends entirely on the choice of the site building tool. Given the competitive environment, choosing the wrong tool for your site building service could be the biggest mistake you can make for the future of your business. By choosing SiteGalore, Apollo Hosting has once again reaffirmed that it is interested in offering only the top services to its users.”

Tamara Field, President - Apollo Hosting says, “Since website hosting has become such a commodity, besides tremendous service, the biggest differentiator of our service are the tools we offer our customers and website building is a crucial piece of that puzzle. Our previous website building tool was simply too limited for some of the advanced features that our customers wanted to build into their websites. That is why we decided on SiteGalore after spending close to eight months evaluating our options with the dozens of site building tools available on the market today. SiteGalore has truly been a class apart both in terms of powerful features and ease-of-use and has been proven to be successful in getting even novice users to build complete websites in just a few minutes.”

Apart from making it easy for its users, SiteGalore’s powerful multi-level private branding capability will now enable Apollo Hosting with a single installation of SiteGalore to market the site building service through a reseller channel and allow these resellers to set up their own branding and pricing for their service or even sign up sub-resellers under them. Apollo Hosting’s resellers or sub-resellers do not need to install or configure anything. SiteGalore thus provides reduced maintenance, greater control and a significant lowering of the total cost of ownership

DOTSTER LAUNCHES WE-BUILD SERVICE FROM AKMIN
Deal allows Dotster to shatter price barrier for professionally designed custom websites.
Oct 12, 2005

Akmin, the technology provider behind SiteGalore, today announced that Dotster, Inc., one of the world’s largest ICANN-accredited domain registrars and web hosting providers has launched the SiteGalore-powered WE-Build Service.

The Dotster We-Build service will offer five-page and ten-page websites built by professional designers. Customers can choose to maintain their own sites or to use the affordable monthly maintenance package with up to three hours of professional design time each month. Each package includes the one-time WE-Build service plus site hosting at Dotster’s most competitive price.

The WE-Build service maximizes resource utilization by enabling the WE-Build team of professional website designers to systematically design, develop and maintain the website based on user inputs by a proven and highly efficient ISO 9001-2000 certified website building process using SiteGalore.

Prashanth, CEO of Akmin Technologies, says, “Given the tight budgets of small businesses, a ‘productized service’ like WE-Build is ideal because it marries the expertise of professional web designers with the price advantage of a do-it-yourself website builder like SiteGalore.”

Client Page, Dotster’s CEO says, “We appreciated the private branding aspect of SiteGalore. The customer interacts with Dotster, with Akmin’s professionals in the background creating websites. It gives our company a valuable capability we couldn’t have provided to our customers without the Akmin partnership.”

Omnis chooses SiteGalore Website Builder
Leading domain & web hosting service provider Omnis Network with over 180,000 user accounts across 200 countries has preferred Akmin’s SiteGalore – the comprehensive do-it-yourself website building tool to tap the rapidly growing small business segment.
Aug 01, 2005

Omnis Network, the California based leading provider of domains and hosting services with over 180,000 user accounts across 200 countries has chosen Akmin’s SiteGalore (www.sitegalore.com) – the powerful do-it-yourself website builder to tap the fast growing small and medium enterprise (SME) website building market more effectively.

Gary Chon, VP Business Development for Omnis says, “Omnis stands for Reliability and that’s exactly what we were looking for when we decided on SiteGalore, which fits well into our twin strategies of customer focus and value-driven approach. SiteGalore’s understanding of the small business user is exceptional, it uses extremely simple and easy to use web site building steps along with some outstanding features that are simply not there in other site building tools.”

SiteGalore's easy to use site building features include Flash intros, shopping carts, custom forms, Blog page, WYSIWYG editor, image editor, guest books, photo albums, over 900 unique designs and over 15,000+ template options, etc. among many others.

Sathya VP Marketing, Akmin says, “There were just a handful of site building tools available when we started way back in 1998, today, there are hundreds. The reason why SiteGalore is such a big hit even today is because it has evolved through an organic process brought about by a continual and in depth understanding of the changing needs and motivations of the small business user. Because ultimately if the user cannot build a website with it, then what is the point?

SiteGalore Makes it Easy for Customers - WEB HOST INDUSTRY REVIEW
by Philbert Shih, theWHIR.com
Jul 25, 2005

A template-based Web site builder that enables customers to easily build their own Web sites is now a standard part of any hosting package. This is especially important when dealing with the small to medium-sized business market, where customers often lack the knowledge and technical skills to build Web sites, and as a result often don't even bother putting them up.

Helping small businesses overcome their fear of technology is a key to accessing this still-growing market. Research firm the Yankee Group (yankeegroup.com) estimates that in the US alone almost five million businesses don't yet have online presences.

"Tapping this huge market is still a huge challenge for most ISPs, Web hosts and other service providers," says David Hill, director of business development for Akmin technologies (akmin.com), developer of the SiteGalore Web site builder. "What you need to do is to get a powerful yet easy-to-use online Web site building tool that allows you to target the small businesses, and allow them to quickly build and maintain their online presence ... this is where SiteGalore comes in."

Akmin's SiteGalore (sitegalore.com) is a Web site building solution designed specially for Web hosts, domain registrars, ISPs and other providers of Internet services.

The solution, with its user-friendly interface, has seen a consistent series of improvements since first being developed four years ago - including the addition of new tools this year - and contains a breadth of functionality that sets it apart from comparable solutions, Hill says.

One of these is a security implementation feature that smaller hosts should find particularly useful. A problem some hosts face is customers who sign up for a month's service, create and download a site, only to host it with another provider once the month's term has expired. SiteGalore's security feature combats this problem, preventing "unethical" downloads of site templates with the browser "save as" function.

"We want to protect [service providers] customers from being poached by other service providers," says Hill. "[This] protects the investment for the service provider."

Another useful feature is the integration of the company's Editlet (editlet.com) technology. The cross-browser and cross-platform compatible Editlet enables users to cut and paste text out of their Microsoft Word documents directly into SiteGalore while preserving all the formatting.

Other features include a bandwidth-saving publish feature, step-by-step wizards, flash intro animation builders, integrated payment gateways with PayPal and VeriSign, blog and photo album creators, image editors, mailing list generators and more.

SiteGalore literally comes with hundreds of features. But not all may be applicable to the specific market a host is targeting. So SiteGalore has enabled service providers to pick and choose the features they want to offer, putting them together into customized packs.

"It helps you create these packs to suit the needs of your target segment more effectively, and of course, you can go ahead and price them as you prefer," says Hill.

Service providers can also make use of a variety of private branding and reseller options. With a single installation of SiteGalore, hosts can sign up resellers and sub-resellers under them. And at each level, the solution can be completely privately branded with the company's colors, logo and domain name. SiteGalore's private labeling can also accommodate hosts offering multiple brands.

Each page of SiteGalore also includes links to Flash movies designed to accommodate novice users when they require assistance. Hill says this is the best way to help users, as it is generally accepted that "nobody reads user documentation."

SiteGalore offers more than 900 unique Web site designs. And colors and images to suit any user's preferences can be easily edited with a straightforward user interface. The sites produced are pure HTML, compatible with nearly any Web server on the Internet.

Through a comprehensive set of API tools, SiteGalore is deployed as a single hosted installation on the service provider's server, and can be integrated with any control panel that a Web host deploys. Prashanth S, CEO of Akmin, says SiteGalore deployments take approximately two weeks, though larger service providers may take up to four weeks.

SiteGalore comes in ten different languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Greek, Chinese and Japanese and is in compliance with ISO 9001:2000 and National Software Testing Labs standards. Several different pricing models for all sizes of service providers are available.

SiteGalore's customers include major industry players such as Tucows, DirectI, HostMySite.com and Host Europe. Hosting automation software developer Ensim (ensim.com) recently announced it would offer SiteGalore to its service provider customer base.

Ultimately, SiteGalore creates confidence for users, says Hill, enabling them to say "hey, I can do this". And it is this kind of response that will help hosting service providers to acquire and retain customers.

Webhost Magazine Editor’s choice award for SiteGalore
Akmin’s SiteGalore, the do-it-yourself (DIY) Website Building Tool gets the prestigious Editor’s Choice Award from Webhost Magazine - rated as “"One Of The Most Useful Sites Ever" by the PC World.
Jul 05, 2005

After a meticulous assessment of inputs from independent panels, buyer's guide, reader reviews, industry feedback, opinions of webhosts, customer response, chat groups, user forums, etc., the industry standard Webhost Magazine, has awarded its prestigious Editor's Choice Award to Akmin’s SiteGalore (www.sitegalore.com) for its versatility and ruggedness.

Ensim Partners with Akmin to offer SiteGalore Web Site Building Solutions
Ensim Customers Can Now Offer Comprehensive Web Site Building Solutions to Small and Medium Businesses
May 24, 2005

Ensim Corporation, the global leader in hosting automation software, today announced a partnership with Akmin to offer SiteGalore (www.sitegalore.com) Web site building software to Ensim’s service provider customers. Over 5000 of the leading service providers worldwide depend on Ensim solutions to deliver next-generation hosted services. Ensim customers can now offer an easy-to-use, feature-rich, private-label Web site building solution as part of their hosted offerings.

Ensim provides the hosting industry’s most robust tool for building and managing commercial-quality Web sites and chose SiteGalore for the breadth of its website design templates and depth of its site creation features. SiteGalore’s powerful multi-tier private branding capabilities allow Service Providers to offer comprehensive site building support to their resellers who in turn may offer the site building service in their own brand to their customers and sub-resellers. SiteGalore also provides support for ten languages, includes integrated payment gateways, and over 700 templates to facilitate quick web site deployments.

Prashanth S, CEO of Akmin commented, "In today's competitive and highly commoditized Web hosting environment, it is critical for service providers to go beyond the traditional hosting plans and provide value add services similar to SiteGalore. Ensim has a strong presence and reach in this market and we believe that this partnership will enable our joint customers to build profitable offerings."

"By offering site building services from SiteGalore, service providers can both differentiate themselves from the competition and improve customer retention. Most small and medium businesses (SMBs) do not have the expertise, time or budget to build and maintain a professional Web site. The Ensim and SiteGalore solution enables SMBs to develop top quality Web sites that help their businesses succeed online,” said Sandip Gupta, President and Chief Executive Officer at Ensim.

Website Builder for Any ISP
Whether you've got two dozen customers and rent the software, or have thousands of resellers and buy the software, Akmin's SiteGalore has a massive feature list and a price to match your business model - by Alex Goldman, Managing Editor, ISP-Planet
May 19, 2005

Chennai, India-based Akmin Technologies offers SiteGalore, a full featured website builder product already embraced by such big names in the industry as Tucows and IKANO.

The key feature of any website building software is usability, says David Hill, director of business development. "We know that a user will switch off when they hit the first problem," he says.

Each page of each wizard within the builder has a "help movie" link that users can click on to watch a video explaining how to use that page. Users can jump back to previous pages using a drop down menu, make changes, and then return to the current step of the wizard.

Among the products many features are:

  • A blogging tool
  • A store, with payment integration
  • An order form builder
  • A word processor
  • A WYSIWIG editor, Editlet, available in application and Java applet editions
  • A site download prevention feature to aid customer retention
  • Cross platform compatibility achieved through basing the app on J2EE
  • Flash intro creation tool (not everyone thinks flash intros are good, but it does seem wise to offer them to people if they might want them)
  • Site design templates whose number continues to grow
  • Available in nine languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Greek, Japanese, and Chinese

The product has undergone extensive independent testing, and Hill is especially proud of the fact that SiteGalore passed is ISO9001:2000 international quality test at KPMG without even a minor non-conformity (minor issues are allowed). Separately, SiteGalore was tested at Philadelphia-based National Software Testing Labs (NSTL) "after it achieved an equivalent of 2,795,904 successful transactions per day without a single failed transaction."

For users who find even wizards too complex, Akmin offers a site building service for $125 per site that ISPs can resell at a markup of 100 to 400 percent. Any company that absolutely cannot use wizards to build their own site would, we believe, be willing to pay $600 for this service. Paying $125 for a service you're selling for $600 is exactly why you'd consider outsourcing to India. Everybody wins in this transaction.

A slew of additional features are planned for the future. They are too numerous to list here, but they include:

  • A content management system
  • Live chat support
  • Live web statistics
  • Search engine submission
  • Local weather report module
  • Stock quotes
  • Event calendar

Pricing and availability
Sounds like a carrier grade product but the pricing is reasonable. The product is available in two versions, rented or purchased.

The rented, Application Service Provider (ASP) model pricing is visible on the service's website. It starts at $33 per month for 20 users, with volume discounts dropping the price rapidly to $249 per month for 250 users.

The licensed product is available in a variety of configurations with different prices. S. Prashanth, the company's CEO, tells us that companies tend to switch from the ASP model to the licensed model after they have 3,000 to 4,000 users on the service. Even the largest deployment, he adds, would pay little more than $4,000 per month.

Akmin’s SiteGalore achieves rare Quality landmark
For the 4th time in succession, Akmin, the makers of SiteGalore and the leading provider of online website building software, achieves a rare distinction by passing KPMG’s ISO 9001:2000 Quality Surveillance Audit without even a single minor or major non-conformity
May 11, 2005

For the 4th consecutive time, Akmin (www.akmin.com), the leading provider of private branded online website building software - SiteGalore (www.sitegalore.com) for Webhosts, ISPs, Domain Registrars, ASPs and other service providers, was found to be flawlessly in adherence with the ISO 9001:2000 standards for international software product quality by a rigorous Quality Surveillance Audit conducted by the premier US-based quality audit firm, KPMG Consulting.

Anil, a leading ISO Quality Auditor says, “… it is extremely rare for companies to be fully compliant without a single minor non-conformity. In fact, I cannot recall a company that has achieved this feat in the recent past. The flawless certification assumes particular significance because KPMG can certify companies in spite of finding up to 5 minor non-conformities.”

Akmin’s CEO Prashanth says, “We don’t believe that quality is simply demonstrating that we’re following well-defined and vital processes. To us it’s about continually improving the design, development and support processes for the benefit of our customers. And we’ve done exactly that for the last 7 years now.”

With over 900+ service providers and serving several thousand users around the world, including some of the biggest names in the industry, it is clear that Akmin, as an organization is committed to quality now than ever before. The flawless certification for the 4th consecutive time is just a proof of that commitment.

COMBELL’s resellers or sub-resellers do not need to install or configure anything."

As an innovative hosting service provider keen to stay on the forefront of the web hosting industry, HostMySite has shown the direction that the industry should be heading,” says Prashanth, CEO of Akmin.

Akmin achieves a rare quality landmark
Akmin, the leading provider of online website building software, achieves a rare distinction by passing KPMG’s Quality Surveillance Audit without a single minor non-conformity for the third consecutive time
Jul 06, 2004

For the third consecutive time, Akmin (www.akmin.com), the leading provider of private branded online website building software - SiteGalore (www.sitegalore.com) for Webhosts, ISPs, ASPs and other service providers, was found to be flawlessly in adherence with the ISO 9001:2000 norms for international software quality by a rigorous Quality Surveillance Audit conducted by the premier US-based quality audit firm, KPMG Consulting. As confessed by one of the auditor’s himself, this is a truly rare achievement considering the fact that KPMG was uniquely authorized to certify companies with up to 5 minor non-conformities.

KPMG’s meticulous audit process of over 30 of Akmin’s design, development, maintenance and support processes, and quality management systems found them to be effective, continually improving and fully compliant with the ISO 9001:2000 standards, without a single deviance from the quality norms specified.

The ISO 9001:2000 certification signifies an unerring adherence to international standards and a robust process quality, which in turn directly affects the quality the product, service and the constituent deliverables. The recent certification clearly demonstrates that quality is a business value that Akmin consistently delivers as part of its products and solutions.

Akmin’s quality management system is managed by a set of qualified and highly committed quality professionals, who employ clearly documented processes and internal procedures that conform to international benchmarks such as ISO and CMM. The competent quality team is supported by state-of-the-art tools and approaches and is backed by regular cross-functional audits and a company-wide culture of continual improvement.

Akmin CEO, Prashanth, says, “…being a world class company … serving several thousand clients around the world … and some of the biggest names in the industry, it is clear that Akmin, as an organization needs to be committed to quality right through to the smallest detail. It is this outstanding commitment to quality that directly reflects on the quality of our products and services.

Jun 15, 2004

Akmin’s SiteGalore (www.sitegalore.com), the comprehensive private branded online web site building tool for web hosts, ISPs, domain registrars, and other service providers, has announced the launch of a new Multi-Level Private-branded Reseller edition of its popular site-building tool. This announcement comes just in time to meet the demands of Large Service Providers who are keen to empower their Resellers, with tools to tap the growing SME market.

The new edition enables Large Service Providers to sign up Resellers under them, who can in turn offer profitable private branded online website building service to their end users. With just a single installation, the Large Service Provider can offer it to thousands of Resellers, resulting in reduced maintenance, tremendous increase in control and a significantly low cost of ownership. The exhaustive set of APIs allows Large Service Providers to tightly integrate the SiteGalore edition in to their existing service.

Using SiteGalore’s new edition, the Large Service Provider can empower Resellers to fully private brand the application including the brand name, email communications, complete user interface and most importantly serve it from Reseller’s own domain name, with absolutely no installation required at the Reseller’s end. Resellers retain full control over the FTP location where the end user websites get published. Resellers can also offer free trial for prospective users, or even target specific SME segments with appropriately packaged feature sets. The best part is, Resellers can even sign up sub-resellers under them who in turn enjoy the same set of powerful features.

“It is critically important for any Large Service Provider to support its Resellers with effective tools (like SiteGalore) to tap the growing SME market, instead of allowing them to search for a third party provider of such a service. SiteGalore’s online website building tool is a perfect fit for this situation as it enables even novice SME users to quickly assemble a corporate-style Internet presence themselves in no time. The websites created using SiteGalore directly increase the sign ups for the Reseller’s hosting services helping them differentiate from competition and even retain existing clients.” says Sathya, VP Marketing

What makes SiteGalore such a big hit with the SMEs, apart from its unmatched online site building features, is its extreme user friendliness and a truly wide range of website design templates that cater to the diverse SME segments, which are both critical aspects that affect the acceptance of such a tool among the SMEs.
