Waters Corporation Selects SDL for Enterprise-Level Content Management

SDL announced that Waters Corporation has selected SDL Knowledge Center [3] to streamline its content creation and management process, drive content reuse and promote standardization of its documentation to deliver a better customer experience. With thousands of scientists around the world relying on Waters products and services, all of which operate in highly-regulated industries, it is essential that the technical documentation being created is accurate, reliable and compliant. However, delivering high-quality, timely publications became challenging as they were using a number of different vendors to localize content in as many as 16 languages, as well as using multiple content management processes and workflows, which made it difficult for writers to identify and reuse existing content. After an extensive review of out-of-the-box solutions for creating product documentation, Waters turned to SDL Knowledge Center to organize and manage Waters technical content, so it can be easily shared, filtered and delivered to any channel.

SDL Launches its V2.0 SDL Customer Experience Cloud

SDL launches its V2.0 SDL Customer Experience Cloud to align with top strategic initiatives of the global brands. The unified suite of offerings centers on four key pillars: digital experience, knowledge center, customer analytics and language to meet the needs of global organizations. With these enhanced capabilities, organizations can gain more insight into customer behavior and preferences to guide customer experience strategies, act on opportunities in real time and deliver relevant experiences in the language of the customer. SDL Customer Experience Cloud drives unified experience and insights for key customer roles across the entire journey, beginning with marketing and eCommerce roles through to customer support and IT professionals. SDL streamlines its cloud offering into four easy to implement, integrated solutions: Digital Experience: SDL enhanced its capabilities for an all-in-one digital experience to further help brands engage their customers through contextually relevant experiences. This includes a set of digital experience accelerators that allow the creation of adaptive web and mobile experiences that offer re-use of content, assets, customer profiles and rules without the need to be developed individually. Combined with new capabilities that allow marketers to test and measure how campaigns or personalized offers perform, SDL’s enhanced digital experience offering significantly reduces the level of upfront investment normally associated with global customer experience initiatives. Leveraging SDL’s Digital Experience capabilities, organizations including Virgin Money, KONE, Halfords, Mandarin Oriental and Kaeser Kompressoren are now providing paramount customer experiences to brands. Knowledge Center: SDL goes beyond the marketing funnel with the availability of its knowledge center. This functionality is an integral part of the SDL Customer Experience Cloud and provides organizations with the ability to convert customers to advocates by facilitating the creation of consistent brand journeys from marketing to a self-service post-sales experience. Key capabilities of the knowledge center allow for the creation of dynamic product knowledge views that offer a superior experience for documentation and self-service support scenarios by providing the same brand richness as done for marketing experiences. Organizations like NetApp, Life Technologies and OSIsoft are using SDL’s Knowledge Center capabilities to drive superior customer experiences. Customer Analytics: with its customer analytics technology, SDL has added the ability to model a single view of the customer that aggregates all customer data including profile, situational data, transactional data, and third-party data that’s available within the enterprise to drive a segment of one experience which enables real-time analysis of the customer experience. SDL has also enhanced SDL Customer Journey Analytics with the ability to track brand health looking at customer perception versus that of competitors. New enhancements include Brand Health Tracking, Campaign Effectiveness, Product Launch Optimization and intelligence to drive Market Expansion. SDL’s Customer Analytics capabilities make it possible for Rebel, Envirofone and totesport to provide seamless customer experiences to brands. Language: SDL provides global brands the ability to effectively communicate across regions and languages ensuring organizations are communicating in the language of the customer, a critical requirement from a customer experience standpoint. New language enhancements include SDL’s Targeted Industry Language Platforms for Travel & Hospitality, Life Sciences, Financial Services and Digital Marketing; organizations can now cater to the terminology and language nuances required for these targeted industries. With SDL’s Language capabilities GTA and KONE are overcoming challenges to achieve customer experience success.
