Wow. We've reached the end of another year and what a year it has been for Ingeniux and the digital content management industry. The changes that we've seen taking place this year not only involve the evolution of web content management technology but also how that technology supports the entire customer lifecycle. We've worked with customers as they have grown and evolved their approach to web experience and customer support and look forward to helping them continue in the new year. Here's a look at some of the things we've been talking about for the past year. We're excited to be a part of the advancement of these strategies and technologies in 2017.

Did you know that a visitor is more likely to stay twice as long on your website if it's in their language? Or that they are four times more likely to purchase if website content is in their language? If your audience is spread across the globe or serves customers in multiple languages within a single country, then you need a multilingual website. So how do you support this need to have content in multiple languages? First, you need a good web content management platform. Then you need a good translation management system. And then you need to integrate the two tightly.
Software as a Service, or SaaS, is a great approach for web content management. It provides all the functionality of a traditional on premises Web CMS without the overhead of purchasing expensive licenses and the cost of managing the server and software environment needed to run your websites. SaaS is definitely about cost-savings, at least upfront, but it's also about handing over the work required to keep your Web CMS environment up and running to people who are experts and leaving your IT resources to look after other important aspects of your business.
2016 marked the fifth anniversary of our annual user conference.

Communities are a great way for companies to engage with and share information with their customers. These types of communities are owned and managed by the brand. They are about building relationships, not just sharing information. Creating an online community for your organization is no small task. It takes planning, careful implementation, and ongoing management to ensure its success. With a community platform like Cartella, we see many organizations embracing the idea of owned communities. Everyone does it a little differently, but the result is the same: Stronger ties to the customer.
