FARO Technologies Standardizes Worldwide Brand on Sitefinity CMS by Telerik World-leading technology specialist chooses Sitefinity for complex multi-language, multi-region B2B web presence Business Wire WALTHAM, Mass. -- April 23, 2013 Telerik, provider of software development, lifecycle and content management tools and solutions, together with QUBA, a prominent Sitefinity Partner, today announced FARO Technologies (NASDAQ: FARO) a leading manufacturer of 3D measurement equipment and software, has chosen Sitefinity for complex multi-language, multi-region B2B web presence. FARO Technologies and QUBA will present their success story on the Telerik Sitefinity stand (E4025) at Internet World April 23-25 at Earls Court, England. Like many successful businesses, FARO Technologies’ web presence had evolved bit by bit over the years. By 2008 the company had multiple websites using different CMS systems. Keeping content in sync was a challenge and the company quickly recognized, it needed a single website capable of delivering localized content in 12 languages to 15 regions worldwide. The goal was to truly maintain a single and consistent brand voice. After initially working with a larger ECM vendor, the company realized it needed a content management system (CMS) that was cost-effective, flexible and easy-to-use. After an evaluation of several vendor offerings, FARO Technologies selected Sitefinity CMS by Telerik. There were three key factors behind FARO Technologies’ decision: value for money, end-user friendliness and developer support. “Overall, our evaluation concluded that the Sitefinity solution represented better value for money for FARO,” says Erik Schradi, Senior Web Developer, FARO Europe. “For developers, Sitefinity offers better support, its architecture is close to .NET and it comes with built-in support for Windows Workflow Foundation.” “When I was introduced to Sitefinity, I said ‘That’s easy – I can do this myself without being a technician!’ Our marketing managers were up and running with Sitefinity inside of an hour,” says Alberto Castiglioni, Marketing Team Leader at FARO Europe. “Our web presence is much more sophisticated. Feedback from the marketing managers has been very positive and although it is too early to see concrete results, we are confident that the new site will perform well. Early analytics show that visitors are spending longer browsing the site than before,” says Erik Schradi, Senior Web Developer, FARO Europe.
