Alterian Content Management provides e-commerce team with more hands on control

Bristol, UK – 30th October 2008 – Alterian (LSE: ALN), a leading international integrated marketing platform provider, today announced that Norwich and Peterborough Building Society (N&P) is to use Alterian Content Management. N&P will use the company’s Web Content Management platform to create a more sophisticated and personalised experience for customers online.

N&P’s current website is aimed at attracting new customers, but as a static website it isn’t as engaging as it could be for existing customers. In addition, any changes to web content have to be made via the IT department, whereas the marketing department wanted a user-friendly solution that gave them direct control over the website content.

“It is vital for our e-commerce team to have direct access to the website and the ability to change content,” said Richard Kent, Head of IT Solutions at N&P. “In today’s uncertain economic climate the ability to quickly upload content and make changes is vital. With rates fluctuating so much, the website requires regular and frequent updating.”

Norwich and Peterborough Building Society has a network of more than 50 branches in East Anglia, Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire, Essex and Bedfordshire, and is the UK’s 13th largest mutual building society. Building better relationships with its customers is particularly important for N&P, and the Alterian solution will enable the Society to provide a better customer experience.

Alterian Content Management offers a powerful and flexible web content management solution for large enterprises, helping them build and run sophisticated intranets, extranets, websites and other digital channels. The platform will help N&P marketers build, manage and publish dynamic content directly to, improving the speed, responsiveness, ease-of-use and quality of content.

“In today’s climate, it is really encouraging to see that financial services organisations are embracing the opportunities that technology offers to engage with, and provide a better experience for, their customers,” said David Eldridge, CEO of Alterian. “Norwich and Peterborough Building Society has recognised this, and we are delighted they have chosen to update and manage web content with Alterian Content Management.”
