“Our goal is to create a great educational experience for our users within the ecosystem of their choosing (be it print or digital) and personalize that experience as ecosystems - such as mobile app and eBook platforms evolve. Internally, we want to produce and market content as efficiently, cost-effectively, and quickly as we can,” said Steve Griffin, Carson-Dellosa’s Chief Technology and Digital Officer.
“We selected eXact learning solutions because it was the best at doing what very, very few enterprise LCMS packages can do,” said Griffin. “It’s flexible, enterprise-scalable and able to be integrated with other systems via powerful application programming interfaces (API). It supports content reuse and is customizable without creating costly system upgrade dependencies.
“No other LCMS had those features as well as proven large-scale deployments. Particularly noteworthy was the ability to change the authoring environment to create highly efficient authoring processes for custom types of print and digital products.
“Having worked with many of the top LMS/LCMS systems for more than 20 years, in my experience no other LCMS can deliver this combination of features. The investment in eXact learning solutions has enabled significant business improvements and has provided significant value to our shareholders.”
All editorial manuscripts are now stored within the eXact learning LCMS, allowing the team to take advantage of the system’s versioning capabilities. These versioning features proved especially useful in enabling Carson-Dellosa’s editorial teams to track and go back to earlier versions of manuscripts, as needed. Editorial times have been reduced through ready access to projects via the repository for internal and freelance staff.
The eXact Learning Repository and authoring environment has enabled Carson-Dellosa to gain control over a vast collection of assets and positioned it to achieve operational efficiencies across its print and digital product development and marketing processes. This has produced benefits for Carson-Dellosa’s editorial, art and design, marketing and sales support activities.
