Shipping giant Stena has moved its website content management systems to Microsoft SharePoint 2010 make it easier to launch new websites.
The company recognised that its existing content management system was out of date and no longer effective and has rebuilt four of its websites using Sharepoint.
Pär Persson, business technology manager, at Stena, said: "Our legacy platform was holding us back - with SharePoint 2010 we now have a flexible, user friendly solution that enables us to deploy new websites quickly."
The use of SharePoint has enabled Stena to personalise websites for customers. This ensures customers receive the information they need and can communicate with Stena. It also makes it possible for Stena to add social media tools to the websites.
Stena already uses SharePoint for its intranet. During the migration it used an outsourced service to support in-house IT in the form of Microsoft services partner ClearPeople.
Pär Persson said the decision to move to SharePoint was partly because staff were familiar with the interface, which is similar to Microsoft Office.
Stena will migrate additional websites to SharePoint.
