Vasont Systems Co-Presents with Medtronic to Share Lessons Learned in an Enterprise Content Management Implementation in the Healthcare Industry

Vasont Systems and Medtronic will present a case study about how Medtronic uses a component content management system (CCMS) to find balance across multiple corporate divisions at this year’s Intelligent Content on Life Sciences and Healthcare Conference

 EMIGSVILLE, PA – April 21, 2014 – Nicole Zepper, Medtronic Neuromodulation division’s Documentation Production Specialist, and Suzanne Mescan, Vasont Systems’ Director of Marketing, will tell the story of Medtronic’s multi-divisional CCMS implementation in the presentation, “Finding Flexibility in a Rigid World” at the Intelligent Content on Life Sciences and Healthcare Conference on May 8-9, 2014 in San Francisco, California.

In order to manage content in a regulated life sciences industry, it takes tools that are configurable and capable of meeting the many requirements and rigidity of the industry while still providing flexibility for writers to work in ways that fit their unique corporate or divisional processes. This session will present a case study of how Medtronic uses one component content management system across four divisions of their company to work similarly in certain areas while adapting to each division’s different needs in other areas. The case study will also provide tips on “what to do” and “what not to do” to implement a successful content management strategy.
