Philips is a leading health technology company focused on improving people’s health. Their Image Guided Therapy (IGT) business unit produces image guided therapy platforms to enable clinicians to perform a wide range of routine and complex cardiovascular procedures. 

The IGT business unit needed to translate more and more product documentation without increasing headcount. They turned to RWS to help them leverage technology and maximize automation of their content management workflow.


“With Tridion Docs in place, we can look to the future, to re-using content for educational purposes.”

Stef Mestrom, Project Manager, Image Guided Therapy, Philips
