Sika is a leading specialty chemicals company in the development and production of systems and products for bonding, sealing, damping, reinforcing and protecting in the construction and automotive industries. The Swiss company has operations in 100 countries worldwide and manufactures in over 300 factories.
Sika chose yuuvis® RAD in 2019 to implement a centralised system for managing marketing and technical product documentation, such as product datasheets, instructions, DoP’s, certificates, etc. A release workflow has since ensured that only up-to-date and approved content is used and passed on to internal and external customers. A particular challenge was to integrate the content of the documents from different systems. As an internationally active company, Sika needs a system that is modern, flexible and expandable. After the successful migration of the existing documents, a newly programmed app therefore ensures that the reading and sharing of documents is possible on all mobile devices. The project was managed by our partner DTI.
The acceptance of the employees was of great importance for the introduction of the new system at Sika. In practice, the search-driven and lean user experience of yuuvis® RAD convinced the users. Further integrations are planned: among others, the worldwide use of the system, in which the interface will be offered in French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese and Japanese.
