What is 'Content Delivery'?

Content delivery is a topic spanning a number of different industries. Content accompanies every product through its entire life cycle – from conception to disposal. Content affects all departments of a company: development, production, marketing, sales and service.

easybrowse offers a comprehensive solution for the management and distribution of electronic and mobile documentation – regardless of whether you are using information online or offline, on a PC or a tablet. Data is distributed simply, quickly and precisely; everybody receives only the information they require. Application areas range from straightforward electronic manuals to electronic catalog systems combined with shopping options all the way up to technical service portals.
