British Petroleum Oil Selects Stellent

Aug 12, 2003

Stellent, Ltd., the London-based subsidiary of Stellent, Inc, a provider of content management solutions, has announced that the Integrated Supply and Trading department of British Petroleum (BP) Oil has launched a Stellent-powered intranet. The intranet has been launched in an effort to improve internal communications by consolidating information into one centralized, manageable system.

BP Oil's Integrated Supply and Trading department consists of more than 2,000 employees and is tasked with the trading, shipping, and supply of BP's energy business around the world. The main objective of the new intranet project is to communicate the department's business strategy to internal audiences while providing all of the information and tools needed to meet these goals. Using Stellent's WebDAV functionality, users can "drag and drop" files into the content management system. In addition, since content can be submitted to the Stellent-powered intranet via interfaces such as Microsoft Word and Excel, the content creation environment is a familiar one to users, which helps encourage BP staff to adopt the new system.

Stellent Content Management is designed to provide a single product architecture that offers Web content management, document management, collaboration, records management, and digital asset management functionalities. The system enables customers to deploy line-of-business Web sites, such as employee portals and partner extranets, as well as enterprise-wide solutions that standardize content management for use by multiple sites and applications throughout an organization. The Stellent Content Management system offers an array of content contribution and content delivery mechanisms, enabling users to contribute content into the system for conversion, management, and delivery to Web sites or applications. It also integrates with existing security systems and provides business personalization, content integration, distribution, and categorization features.
