GlitterPaw's History

GlitterPaw Software is a mature CMS that began back in 1997 as a simple ecomemrce platform.

Originally used to sell Acer Monitors and Cisco System Routers online, over time many features were added to keep up with internet trends.

In 2001 functionality for a membership system was added. This allows members to join a website and pay subscription services or membership dues.

In 2003 the membership systems was expanded to act as a customer relationship management platform.

2004 began the development of an ecommerce product module specific for the jewelry industry.

In 2005 GlitterPaw gained the ability to use themes.

In 2007 evolution for the system started moving in a modular direction that could be easily set up on almost any web server.

In 2008, during the transition from version 6 to 7, GlitterPaw was rebuilt from scratch in order to remove some of those internet trends that were not useful any more.

GlitterPaw Software 7 was released in 2008 with the mission to be more efficient and include only the features that most users would need.

Mobile functionality was added in June 2010 along with automatic QR code generation for pages and products.

The customer and ecommerce modules were rebuilt in September 2010.

Content Marketing modules for Blogging, Articles, Newsletters, Sponsored posts, and Press Releases were added between 2010 and 2017. These modules are continually updated with new tags and features are trends change.

In 2013 the Content Swap feature was added. This allows for instant swapping of content on any page of the site when needed. This is useful for holiday promotions or when you need to set up different language libraries.

In 2014 a contest module was added to the software to all for mobile contests of chance as well as voting for contest entries.

In mid 2014 a lot of functionality was added for online marketers, including the ability to shorten links, capture sales leads, A/B testing, email marketing to your customer or subscriber list, tracking of social media referrals.

In September 2014 functionality was added to share user tracking data with Google Analytics to track User IDs. This feature allows GlitterPaw to track web users from their first touch point all the way into a brick and mortar store.

The Future of GlitterPaw Software

GlitterPaw is supported for up to 3 year after being installed.

Usability tweaks continue every day and module features are periodically added.

GlitterPaw Software can be installed using the WebDNA Server Module edition on a VPS hosted with GoDaddy. Customers who sign up for VPS hosting through Stellium Networks (a reseller for GoDaddy) will receive free server installation and configuration, but you are still required to purchase the WebDNA license directly from the WebDNA Software Corporation.

Any WebDNA programmer can be hired to manage the system or support the code. You can use the WebDNA Software Corporation website to locate programmers, or you can hire Sapphire Collaborative since they use GlitterPaw all the time.

GlitterPaw Software is backed by an insurance policy!

Many website agencies will recommend using open source technology to build websites, which is not a bad idea if you have the deep pockets to pay for continual security patches updates to your site when your CMS is upgraded.

Some agencies will even use fear tactics that you should never use proprietary technology online, because, what would happen if your website company went out of business? Therefore, they say, it's better to use open source software so you can hire any Tom, Dick, or Harry to take over your site if your web firm goes under.

Although GlitterPaw Software is readily available, and can be supported by any WebDNA programmer, most of the users are clients of our subsidiary company, Sapphire Collaborative, who offers GlitterPaw only as a SaaS solution.

The CMS has been in development since 1997, in fact the term "content management system" wasn't even coined back when we started programming it. As of 2018 our CMS is already in it's 15th version. It's older than WordPress, Shopify, Joomla, Drupal, and many others.

For us, there's no worry about the longevity of the software or what would happen if one or both of the owners were to suddenly die. Stellium Networks isn't a public company, but our company maintains Key Man Life Insurance for the owners as a way to guarantee continuity of the business for the sake of our clients.

What other small business takes such steps to protect their customers like that? We're betting all the naysayers using fear tactics are not.
