SDL Introduces New Version of SDL Campaigns

SDL introduced a new version of SDL Campaigns, a key component of the SDL Customer Experience Cloud (CXC), to help organizations orchestrate and optimize customer interactions across all channels through one single view of the customer. At a time when consumers are seeking individualized brand experiences, this new release enables organizations to engage with customers in a manner that goes beyond basic relevance, incorporating specific, contextual data across all touch-points. Marketers now have the confidence that they are not just accessing, but are also organizing and using all available and relevant customer data to yield the best experience possible. With this release of SDL Campaigns, global brands can now utilize the following new features and capabilities to enhance their contextual marketing efforts: Real-Time Marketing - Takes historical transaction data, demographic data and current contextual data from sources such as the SDL CXC or existing technology solutions to power real-time marketing use cases; Journey ID - Automates the manual process of consolidating, organizing and making customer data usable to the marketer to ensure all touch-points in every multichannel campaign is optimized using all relevant interaction data; Digital Marketing Dashboards - Ensures marketers can bring in campaign data from new digital channels to provide a complete view of marketing in real-time.

SDL Launches Industry Specific Language Cloud Platforms to Accelerate Translation and Deliver Seamless Global Customer Experience

SDL introduced industry specific language platforms to help organizations rapidly and efficiently address the needs of their global customers within the industries they operate. The language platforms, a key extension to the Language pillar of SDL’s Customer Experience Cloud (CXC), can be integrated to provide seamless delivery of global customer experiences. The eight industries include Travel and Hospitality, Finance, Life Sciences, Global Marketing, IT & Software, Manufacturing, eCommerce and Consumer Electronics. Each industry has its own unique needs and challenges when it comes to language and translation. For example, life sciences companies require high quality, technical translations as they exist in highly regulated markets where an inaccuracy could impact a patient, while travel and hospitality companies must translate billions of words of customer reviews as quickly as possible. Drawing on more than 20 years of experience helping organizations overcome translation challenges, SDL has designed these platforms specifically for the needs of each market. The SDL industry language platforms are out-of-the-box, industry specific translation solutions comprising both language technology and services which are fully customized for the requirements of each industry to ensure accurate, consistent translations across languages for a more relevant experience. Each platform integrates SDL’s existing translation technology and services and can be further customized to meet a customer’s specific requirements.
