Tightly integrated with other solutions, such as OpenText Media Management and Customer Communications Management (CCM), OpenText WEM provides corporate marketers with a powerful and trusted, high-performance enterprise platform.
"OpenText has been listening to the needs of marketing and is now launching a powerfully redesigned CEM solution that can help businesses improve their web experiences significantly," stated Scott Liewehr, president and principal analyst, Digital Clarity Group. "The new version of OpenText WEM is clearly not the Vignette of long ago. OpenText's offering now includes some of the most advanced DAM functionality as well as many of the other pieces of scalable technology required to enable even the largest enterprises in their quest to improve their web experience for improved customer satisfaction and retention."
The latest version of OpenText WEM delivers potent, new features to help maximize the online presence of today's global businesses. These include:
Support for Responsive Design - OpenText WEM is built with an intuitive design interface based on HTML5 that encourages business users to create a web presence that draws on images, video, text and documents following the principles of responsive design to help deliver the most optimized, non-disruptive experience possible on any platform or device. The simple and inviting user interface gives both experienced and non-technical marketers drag and drop in-line editing capabilities with previews to see the website in context as it is seen by visitors using any type of device.
Highly Compelling Experiences - OpenText WEM can deliver targeted, personalized, relevant and rich media dynamically to audiences and systems on-demand. A flexible segmentation and targeting rules engine also helps marketers to incorporate capabilities from social media or integrated applications to deliver a recognizable experience for the end user. With the latest user preference for video and rich media-based information sharing, WEM integrates the market's leading Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution, OpenText Media Management, to further improve the site visitor's experience.
Omni-Channel Touch Points
WEM supports integration with many popular social networking sites, such as Facebook®, Twitter® and LinkedIn, and provides in-context viewing prior to publishing.
Redesigned multi-lingual content flagging makes it easier for global organizations to manage the creation to publication process within a single system.
Gathering analytics and marketing metrics is made easier, as web pages generated for all formats are delivered from a single system - OpenText WEM.
"By integrating OpenText Web Experience Management with OpenText's Cloud services, we've been able to significantly improve the customer experience on our site and provide targeted marketing messages that drive our initiatives without the need for IT intervention," commented Nicholas Tran, social media lead, Digital Marketing at Taco Bell. "Furthermore, OpenText WEM has enabled us to extend beyond traditional marketing channels by integrating social media, allowing us to further extend our reach to customers and take action on daily online engagement with strategic insight."
