Powered by HP Autonomy and engineered by Kanban Solutions, a leading
software development and content consultancy, the new engaging,
immersive and award-winning website helps Nikon better connect with
its consumer base, driving brand loyalty and sales. 
With the proliferation of digital photography, consumers of all
backgrounds and skill levels crave articles, tips and other content
that educates and inspires them to be better photographers. By
embracing HP TeamSite and HP LiveSite to deliver dynamic, targeted
and interactive content to site visitors, Nikon is providing a rich,
immersive experience with content specifically written and curated
for this audience. This has led to improved brand loyalty and
heightened awareness during the purchase process. 
"We needed to deliver a dynamic, more personalized and inspiring
experience for Nikon consumers seeking photography-specific
educational and instructional content," said David Dentry, senior
general manager, Customer Experience, Nikon Inc. "HP Autonomy and
Kanban Solutions not only provided this experience, but they
delivered a system that significantly improved the behind-the-scenes
workflow, and also delivered a channel that actually drives commerce
through content." 
The website redesign and functionality -- both powered by HP Autonomy
technology -- has garnered significant industry recognition, winning
a 2013 Webby Award, the Web Marketing Association's 2013 WebAward and
the American Business Awards' Gold Stevie for Best Software
Programming and Design.  
HP TeamSite and HP LiveSite enabled Nikon and Kanban Solutions to
redesign and rebuild Learn & Explore's entire technology platform and
user interface so that branded content could be efficiently created,
managed, repurposed, optimized and published. With easy-to-use visual
building tools, HP TeamSite allowed Nikon to create more targeted
webpage content and manage the individual workflows. Nikon media
assets are stored in HP Media Bin and seamlessly integrated with the
TeamSite workflow. Integration between BrightCove and TeamSite allows
content authors to upload instructional videos directly to the site. 
"As a world-leading provider of optics and imaging technology, Nikon
shares HP Autonomy's commitment of exceeding customer expectations by
providing customized, immersive web experiences," said Rafiq
Mohammadi, General Manager, Marketing Optimization, Autonomy. "The
Learn & Explore page is a great example of up-leveling the customer's
experience while also streamlining the back end and easing the load
on IT while enabling an uptick in brand loyalty and sales."
