John Deere needed to modernize its enterprise publishing system to produce documentation supporting global products distribution.
Growth of commercial equipment sales in emerging markets meant that John Deere needed to deliver technical information in some of the most difficult to support languages.
They also needed to reduce their publishing times and reduce the operating costs to remain competitive in these time sensitive and rapidly evolving markets.
The customer required that the previously deployed XML/SGML-based content creation, management and distribution solution be updated to support all new requirements with no disruption to production.
GPSL was able to accomplish this by replacing the legacy composition engine with PTC's updated, high performance formatting engine in line with the existing infrastructure. No other technology components were affected.
GPSL redesigned the stylesheets to accommodate all previous functionality and added native support for over 29 languages including Vietnamese, Hebrew, Arabic and Thai.
