"We have a team in Telerik that is helping us customize the solution and provide advice and recommendations to help us reach our goals to provide an easy-to-use modern platform for editors, with critical support for mobile built into the project.”

ABB is a global leader in power and automation technologies. ABB's solutions enable utility, industry, and transport and infrastructure customers to improve performance while lowering environmental impact. With 8,500 technologists and an annual $1.5 billion research and development budget, innovation is at the forefront of what ABB does every day.
ABB was using a legacy, custom CMS system which was becoming an increasing burden to maintain. In addition, the ABB team recognized the legacy platform would not be able to meet the strategic future demands of ABB's web presence in a sustainable way.
ABB evaluated solutions available on the market, and shortlisted a few to provide a proof of concept. On the shortlist were Umbraco, Sitecore, EpiServer and Sitefinity CMS. When ABB's developers saw the Sitefinity CMS, they knew on a conceptual level that it could take ABB further.
In addition to being web-based, Sitefinity CMS’s ease of use helps ABB’s site editors to edit content quickly and accurately. Additionally, the platform provides built-in support for mobile, rather than it being an afterthought.
