Company History[edit]

TERMINALFOUR was founded in 1996 by current CEO Piero Tintori. It competed principally in the Irish and UK markets before securing investment of US$2.3 million in 2010 to support its strategy for international growth. This enabled it to “expand its focus to the US market in addition to Europe”. In 2010, a United States office was opened in Boston. TERMINALFOUR clients include the Irish Central Statistics Office, Permanent TSB, Specsavers, Aer Lingus and over 100 US and British government authorities and educational institutes

TERMINALFOUR Site Manager[edit]

The company's principal product is TERMINALFOUR Site Manager. The aim of the product is make it really easy for organizations to deliver and manage very large, highly-devolved, multilingual Websites, Intranets and Extranets. The company invested US$1.2 million in research and gathered extensive feedback from partners and incorporated it into the development of Site Manager 7.0. The launch of Site Manager 7.0 led to a “record breaking year” for TERMINALFOUR. While the company still has a “stronghold” within the UK and Irish markets, in 2011, the U.S. market accounted for 38% of new business revenue in the previous business year.

TERMINALFOUR Site Manager 7.2 (launched in April 2012) offers multi-platform support and allows thousands of content creators around the world to collaborate on projects by enabling web content management servers to talk to each other. The updated product received a favourable review from industry watching website CMS Wire.
