LOS ANGELES, CA (September 11, 2006) —
CrownPeak (www.crownpeak.com), the company defining the future of content management, today announced core benefits of their award-winning content management solution (CMS) for the North American Membership Group Inc. (NAMG), a consumer lifestyle company that successfully combines membership, publishing and merchandise marketing into one innovative and growing business for over 4 million members.
Since implementing CrownPeak CMS in early 2006, the North American Membership Group has vastly improved their ability to control all aspects of their nine membership websites, manage rapidly changing content from multiple users, dramatically reduce overall publishing time and increase organic site traffic through enhanced site optimization. With CrownPeak's flexible content management solution, NAMG has eliminated complex workflow processes while strengthening their core messaging to their ten affinity clubs through a streamlined web site experience.
"Flexibility and lack of control over content were the biggest challenges with our web sites and online experience for members," said Tim Carroll, AVP Partnership Marketing. "Our ability to take true ownership of our content, improve our internal workflow and cut enormous time off publishing for our multiple sites was greatly enhanced by CrownPeak's system. Now, we manage to do everything web site-related with much more confidence."
CrownPeak CMS offers organizations a flexible, easy-to-implement interface that gives them a powerful way to centralize multiple tasks into a seamless workflow process. This solution has proven to be effective for NAMG -- helping them gain much needed efficiency, total control over content and easy integration of other solutions. NAMG's search optimization efforts have also improved because of the "clean code" CrownPeak's CMS produces, ultimately improving their site traffic by allowing for a more visible and accessible search engine experience.
"Giving organizations the power to control, shape and own their web site experience is what our content management system provides them," said Jim Howard, CEO of CrownPeak. "CrownPeak CMS makes a seemingly difficult work process into an easy, cost-effective and collaborative experience that greatly improves everything about managing content."
