London, UK – 20 April 2012: Magus, the leader in website quality and compliance monitoring, today launched a major upgrade to its ActiveStandards SaaS platform for enterprise website governance and compliance.

The platform has been rebuilt from the ground up to make quality assurance faster and simpler than ever before. It now has a new interface which is designed to reflect the way real users work by providing a structured path through core web governance tasks.

Enhancements include:

*Brand new user interface: The new, task-based navigation provides enhanced support for core web governance activities

*New multi-level analytics: ActiveStandards now offers increased support for metrics-driven business environments with its range of detailed performance reports and analytics

*New back-end: ActiveStandards’ underlying infrastructure has been rebuilt to provide enhanced scalability, improved performance and security management

*Mobile web reporting: With the web becoming increasingly multi-channel, it’s vital to ensure quality and consistency across your digital channels. ActiveStandards now includes mobile monitoring in accordance with best practice standards for the mobile channel

Simon Lande, CEO, Magus, says: “This is our most substantial update since ActiveStandards was first launched in 2006. Since then, we’ve seen a lot of changes in the business landscape. For one, web governance has matured as a discipline, leading many organisations to take a more metrics-driven approach to managing their digital properties. As a result of this shift, web managers are under increased pressure to justify their budgets. This renewed accountability means it is increasingly important for organisations to track their progress, measure their efficiency and prove their successes to secure additional support for web operations. In line with this trend, we have enhanced and expanded our Strategic Insight capabilities to ensure ActiveStandards continues to meet the needs of businesses today.”
