Siteimprove Announces Customer Learning Platform


Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 04, 2014

Siteimprove Academy, the customer learning platform, currently offers courses on website accessibility and website governance, the first of their kind to be offered online.

Siteimprove Academy allows us to rapidly deploy and grow a knowledge base for our customers, adding value to our software, said Siteimproves eLearning spokesperson Kevin Rydberg. Weve already offered the tools to make their site better, and now were offering the understanding to use those tools to their maximum potential.

As the importance of an organizations website becomes their primary face to the outside world, the quality of their web presence becomes increasingly important, Rydberg said. The Web Accessibility Certification and Web Governance Certification courses provide website managers with the knowledge to structure their team and website more effectively. These are invaluable skill sets for modern web managers, contributors, and developers, for which training simply isn’t available anywhere else in a digestible classroom environment like Siteimprove Academy.

Website accessibility, the practice of making websites usable for people with disabilities, is an increasingly-legislated and little-understood topic Siteimprove hopes to shed light on through the new courses.

According to recent studies, one in five people in the United States claim some form of disability. These people have a right to equal access of public information, and their exclusion can make a serious difference in an organizations bottom line, Rydberg said. Siteimprove Academys accessibility certification course builds understanding and best practices for making websites accessible.

Website governance, the practice of structuring roles, regulations, and policies pertaining to website maintenance, is a similarly little-known practice in modern website teams. The idea of governance has long been used by organizations to structure themselves more effectively, and only recently has the idea of applying those techniques to a web team begun to grab attention.

Not only have volumes of online publishing exploded in recent years, but so has the sophistication and number of platforms to be supported, said Shane Diffily, author of the Siteimprove Web Governance Certification Course. From web to intranets to social media, this challenge is putting considerable strain on web teams. Web Governance courses are necessary to help put order to all this complexity.

Grupo Industrial LaLa Supports Global Expansion with Commitment to CPs Mirapoint Messaging Platform

San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) September 06, 2013

Critical Path, Inc. (CP), a global leader in Messaging, Security, and Unified Communications, today announced that Grupo Industrial LaLa (GILSA) has made a significant commitment to CPs Mirapoint Messaging Platform as the organizations email and email security solution for their users across North America.

GILSA is one of the largest dairy companies in the world. Headquartered in Mexico, GILSA manufactures and distributes dairy products through a finely tuned supply chain across the North American continent. The last five years have seen GILSA embark on an international expansion program from its Mexican base. This began in 2008 with the purchase of its first US-based manufacturing plant in Omaha, Nebraska.

Acquiring new operations has required seamlessly integrating organizations and data into GILSA. To support that effort, GILSA assigned its Network and Architecture team to specify the requirements for a new communications system across the company. Working with local technology provider Virmar (virmar.mx), GILSA built the business case that formed the basis for investment.

Ing. Hector Curiel, TI-Technology Planning Manager at GILSA explains, My first challenge was to craft a strategy to transform the communication platform from a local departmental system to an international communications network. To achieve this, selecting a solid and reliable email partner was critical. We chose CP because its solution met our requirements of a standard, robust, reliable, and flexible email solution platform that supports Grupo LaLas growth in any country we have operations.

Mark Palomba, CPs CEO, shared, When Grupo LaLa began looking for a partner, they carefully built a business case based on several key elements including performance, reliability, high availability, mobile support, tight data security, support for future growth, email archiving, ease-of-use and more. CP is delighted they have chosen us to meet the needs of their business now, and as they expand internationally. CP is one of the largest providers of email solutions in the world, supporting over 225M accounts, and will continue to provide the high-quality email, security, and archiving services so relied upon by this leading company.
