Varian Medical Systems Relies on the IXIASOFT DITA CMS to Deliver Critical Technical Documentation

The DITA CMS offers Varian a centralized component content management system to support their global DITA strategy

MONTREAL, CANADA--(Marketwire - June 28, 2012) - IXIASOFT, the XML component content management market leader, today announces that Varian Medical Systems, the leading manufacturer of medical devices and software for the treatment of cancer, has deployed the DITA CMS solution to manage their global documentation processes.

Varian Medical Systems was looking for a CCMS solution that would streamline their documentation process, allow collaboration between geographically dispersed teams, and decrease their localization and publishing costs.

Varian is a producer of medical devices and software for treating cancer and other medical conditions with radiotherapy, radiosurgery, and brachytherapy. The company also supplies informatics software for managing comprehensive cancer clinics, radiotherapy centers and medical oncology practices. They employ approximately 6,000 people who are located across North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Varian's technical publication team uses the IXIASOFT DITA CMS for the creation, management, localization and multi-channel delivery of their entire documentation.

"We needed a documentation system which would allow us to deliver critical product content faster and improve customer experience, all while conforming with strict medical device regulations. With the DITA CMS in place, we can rely on a CCMS solution that not only meets requirements today but which we see continuously evolving." said Kevin O'Reilly, Senior Director, Customer Support Services Marketing & Global Publications, Varian.

"IXIASOFT is now working with three of the leading medical device manufacturing companies in the world. We can see that DITA is really making headway into this heavily regulated industry. Varian is committed to working in DITA as a global documentation strategy and relying on the DITA CMS to deliver critical information, on time and at a lower cost. We are very excited to include Varian as a customer." said Eric Bergeron, President of IXIASOFT.
