A partner like Evident helps us shape our business to the new reality. They are able to support and challenge us with their business and technical expertise as well as their knowledge of the market of Distribution and Manufacturing."

Internationalization and unlocking complex product information

Getting the total solution offering out there in an attractive and intuitive way was one of the main drivers for replatforming. Caldic's products and services database is very broad and is used for a wide range of specific market applications. By creating a product import and crafting the right structure and presentation, Caldic is now able to unlock relevant data at the right time to the right customers and prospects into the right local markets.

The challenges regarding internationalization are eased with the new platform. It allows Caldic to have a global presence and unified brand exposure, while maintaining the advantages of a local approach using personalization and mutilingual content technologies.
