IXIASOFT, the leader in DITA component content management system (CCMS) software, based in Montreal, Canada, announced today that it has extended its partnership with Etteplan, a technology service company that specializes in software and embedded solutions, engineering solutions, and technical documentation solutions. Employing 4,000 engineering specialists, the results of Etteplan’s innovative engineering can be seen in numerous industrial solutions and everyday products.

This latest phase in their partnership has Etteplan leveraging IXIASOFT CCMS technology to enable authors, contributors, subject matter experts and the team at Etteplan collaborating across organizations to create a digital knowledge base while providing interactive technical information to field technicians and consumers alike.

“Etteplan conducted an extensive evaluation of available CCMS solutions, and IXIASOFT was the only CCMS vendor that met all our critical requirements including complete DITA support, sophisticated workflows, and clearly defined application permissions. But beyond the technical aspect, we needed to ensure we were going to be collaborating with a partner that shared our vision for exceeding customer expectations. We selected IXIASOFT, as they not only offered the best solution for our customers, but also share our vision for digital transformation.” said Etteplan’s Vice President, Global Service Solutions, Eric Tengstrand.
