Jaap van der Meer

Owner, TAUS

“We have partnered with Spartan since its very beginning in 2009 when they helped us build the TAUS Data Cloud. Recently Spartan also supports TAUS with developing plug-ins for the Dynamic Quality Framework. TAUS is very pleased with the professional and expert support from Spartan.”

Marc Noble

Program Manager, Knowledge Centered Services

"Our team was asked to implement a worldwide knowledge sharing program for over 2000 support technicians in 27 countries, and also provide a Customer Self-Help portal. The only way we could accomplish this was to have a connector that would capture all new and/or edited content, in multiple languages housed in multiple instances of CMS, prepare, schedule and manage the translation process, then re-package and import content into multiple language sites. This would have been impossible without the help of Spartan software and their development team.
