Acrolinx and Astoria: platform-to-platform integration
Astoria Software has embedded Acrolinx Software's content optimization platform into the its Component Content Management solution. The integration allows Astoria users to invoke Acrolinx from the Astoria user interface. Further, Astoria’s workflow processes can take action on the result of Acrolinx’s content analysis.
The companies say the Astoria-Acrolinx integration allows companies to build high-quality content at a lower cost and with consistent results. Also, because the integration is between the Astoria server and the Acrolinx server, the solution is said to scale automatically to support very high volumes of content produced.
Acrolinx says it enhances content quality throughout a customer’s business processes by:
- storing and managing corporate content standards;
- checking content against those standards and guiding writers to create content that’s more findable, readable and engaging; and
- generating comprehensive analytics that highlight areas of strength and weakness.
Acrolinx automatically analyzes content within Astoria for tone of voice, style, terminology, reuse and search engine optimization. Acrolinx works in the background, analyzing files in the Astoria repository for later action by writing teams. For business processes built around Astoria Workflow, the result of the Acrolinx assessment can determine whether or not a component continues to a subsequent step, such as review or translation, or returns to the author for further work, the two companies report.
