There are no short-cuts on the road to a streamlined, more efficient content supply chain, the sequence of activities required to create, manage and distribute information. In fact, companies that try to cut steps could be making a mistake that could result in unnecessary delays and expensive system overhauls.

That's why it makes sense to work with a proven solutions provider, APLOMB Technologies Our teams of experienced consultants have helped a number of organizations – from global telecommunications companies to leading information services providers – achieve those goals by finding more efficient, cost-effective ways to bring content from concept to its final form.

For example, we advised a leading European media company on how to devise an enterprise search strategy that will allow employees and customers to access information stored within 30 different systems. We also helped a semi-conductor manufacturer revamp its production process for creating technical documentation, developing an XML-based proof-of-concept solution that met the manufacturer's requirements. And we're currently working with a major multinational publisher to develop an outsourcing strategy to streamline their editorial processes for creating content in multiple languages.

Streamlined for Success

Improving the sequence of activities required to create, manage and distribute information - what we call the content supply chain - often drives dramatic change within an organization: reduced expenses, faster time to market and the creation of more innovative products and services. We've helped a number of organizations - from global IT companies to leading information services providers - achieve those goals.

Proven Processes

We start with a detailed analysis of our client's content supply chain. Once we've made a system recommendation, we then focus on four key areas that are integral to the project's success, whether it involves outsourcing editorial functions or integrating new systems.

Stress communication between all key stakeholders. Communication is important at every stage of project, prior to the analysis, during the analysis and again during the pilot implementation.

Stay focused on overarching goals. Every project team often needs to balance the need for modifications against the original goals. At each step of the way, we will determine which course corrections are necessary and how the project can continue to meet the overarching business objectives.
