Trek Bicycle Deploys CrownPeak CMS

Sep 26, 2003

CrownPeak Technology, a provider of hosted content management systems, has been selected to provide a content management implementation for the Klein Bikes unit of Trek Bicycle Corp. Klein Bikes has deployed CrownPeak's Advantage CMS content management system to consolidate its Web site management process and implement a translation workflow system. The site is presented in six languages--English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese--in an effort to support the company's international customer base.

Klein had previously worked with various Web design firms and ad agencies to update its Web site. The move to CrownPeak marks a revamp of the company's Web site management process, placing all content management requirements under a single technology. In order for the Klein site to communicate information to an international audience, CrownPeak connected Advantage CMS to a language translation firm's product, in an attempt to speed and streamline the translation process.

Features of CrownPeak Technology's Advantage CMS include: source control, versioning, spell checking, link management, comprehensive workflow, security monitoring features, multilingual interfaces, database management, and wireless compatibility in a browser-based interface. Its Web interfaces enable users to maintain and edit content in any format as text, images, movies, or any hybrid medium. The administrative interfaces and application code are hosted on high-availability servers, where CrownPeak backs up, maintains, and extends the system.
