Challenges regarding software selection
However, choosing the right software poses a challenge for many companies, as there are significant differences between the various content management systems: Manufacturers with long-term product cycles and few updates require different systems compared to manufacturers which offer numerous customer-specific products with frequent updates. The type of CMS you need, therefore depends on the product and the respective requirements. KERN examines the specific requirements from the preparation, data management and modularisation, to the translation and cross-media publication of content, while supporting you in the selection and integration of software into your existing corporate structure, for example by offering specific workshops to your employees or embedding the CMS in the corporate network.
What are the advantages of using a content management system?
