This chemical testing organisation is a worldwide leader in laboratory testing, inspection, and certification services with over 15,000 employees and over 350 locations in more than 65 countries. After switching to Sitecore more than seven years ago, the business was spending most of its time on trying to maintain the stability of the platform, rather than consolidating the many and varied CMS and CRM platforms used by their global offices.
The company was challenged with multiple, globally located business units buying varied MarTech platforms that needed to address their local business and marketing needs. One of the main reasons these decisions are made at a local level is because the teams did not have access to the language they required on the parent Sitecore platform, or use the MarTech features quickly and easily in the way they needed to.
The company's Marketing Manager said, “We were at the point where we were saying - if we can't start delivering on our goals for the platform, and if we can't start using these capabilities, we're going to continually lose confidence with the platform from the wider business, and the business is going to go elsewhere.”
The company's ultimate goal is to consolidate the many and varied Customer Relationship Management and Content Management Systems their global business offices are operating in siloes. The goal is to do this by demonstrating that the parent Sitecore Experience Platform can deliver value to global offices through:
In completing the above, the company hopes to grow data integrity and lower their total cost of ownership of MarTech platforms across the entire group.

Simultaneously, a number of new languages including Thai, French, Mandarin and Cantonese are being delivered onto the site for seamless contact management.
The Dynamics integration has allowed the business to offer both new acquisitions and existing business streams a single integrated MarTech platform that shows a 360-degree view of the customer across the sales and marketing teams, and has the capacity to deliver digital experiences that their customers are looking for.
The company now has a platform that they are confident to onboard business streams onto. Having this ability will reduce the company's MarTech total cost of ownership, with both new business acquisitions and existing business streams coming onto the parent platform.
