Merck & Co. The Daily Backpage
Pharmaceuticals giant, Merck & Co. looked to eSiteful to bring a long-standing daily employee classified ads print publication to the company's intranet.
With over 40,000 employees spread across multiple regions, managing the many versions of this daily publication had become a real headache. Hundreds of ads would arrive daily by fax, phone and email in a variety of formats. Teams of editors would begin the costly and time-consuming process of editing, organizing, approving, and typesetting every ad individually and then, only a select few could fit into each regional daily issue.
With a shot of technology and a dose of design eSiteful delivered just what the doctor ordered. A Java-based web application complete with ad creation wizards to streamline the formatting and approval of ads. Employees now browse or search thousands of ads by region, date or category through an intuitive interface designed to fit nicely into Merck's world class intranet portal.
