WALTHAM, Massachusetts – January 12, 2016 – Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: LIOX) the world’s leading provider of global content and communication solutions announced customer Life Fitness recently completed a global rollout of Lionbridge onDemand, including a fully automated integration to the Acquia Platform. Now dozens of Life Fitness departments across geographies all manage their translation needs 24/7 via Lionbridge onDemand.
“Translation was a painful, often delayed process before Lionbridge onDemand,” said Bob Quast, Vice President Global Marketing & International Market Development, Life Fitness. “With onDemand we have eliminated delays and manual activity for quotes, status updates, file transfers, purchase orders, and invoices. Content review is also streamlined through Lionbridge’s Global Brand Voice and Review Workflow, which also allows us to manage brand consistency. The automated connection to Acquia flows web content into the same easy process. Lionbridge onDemand is a great solution for us.”
Translation needs at Life Fitness span numerous content types including: websites, videos, software applications, mobile apps, technical documentation, marketing collateral, legal, graphics, and more. Lionbridge onDemand supports all of these content types via a walk-up interface that makes managing the translation process easy for all users. For its web presence, Life Fitness integrated Lionbridge onDemand using a newly developed connector with the Acquia Platform, a scalable cloud platform for building, delivering, and optimising digital experiences.
“Life Fitness is responding to the demands of a highly engaged customer base, creating immersive, engaging digital experiences for their brand loyalists and fitness enthusiasts alike,” said Joe Wykes, VP of Global Channels, Acquia. “By integrating Lionbridge onDemand with the Acquia Platform, Life Fitness is accelerating the delivery of content and campaigns across markets to help build its global business.”
Lionbridge onDemand tripled its revenue in 2015 as clients like Life Fitness find great value in its ability to streamline the entire translation process.
