<p>Catholic Health Initiatives</p>
<p>With nearly 66,000 full and part-time employees spread out across more than 100 facilities nationwide, Catholic Health Initiatives is one of the largest Catholic health systems in the United States. Vignette enables the healthcare provider to decentralise content management and Web publishing while giving employees the ability to collaborate and distribute important information via its intranet. The result is a drop in IT costs and improvement in employee productivity.</p>
<p>Emergency Medical Services Corporation (EMSC)</p>
<p>EMSC’s physician services billing division, Reimbursement Technologies, Inc., is a large scale billing company that is focused on driving more efficient office processes. Vignette’s Imaging and Workflow solution has helped them significantly reduce their dependence on paper-based transactions while creating a more streamlined billing system.</p>
<p>Marriott International, Inc.</p>
<p>With more than 70 million visitors in the past year, Marriott’s Web site is their fastest-growing customer interaction channel. Vignette helps Marriott.com extend the guest experience by providing personal and engaging online experiences for their customers.</p>

Vignette enables Veria.com to fully integrate audio, video, graphics and other types of dynamic content on a rich, interactive e-commerce portal and helps ensure the Web site can scale to meet the needs of subscribers.</p>
<p>USA.gov</p>
<p>Connecting to more than 22,000 government Web sites and averaging six million unique visitors per month, USA.gov is the primary portal for anyone seeking information and services from U.S. Government entities. This year, Vignette played an integral role in the re-brand and re-launch of USA.gov by helping government officials quickly and easily update content on the site.</p>

<p>The USCIS web site is one of the most heavily trafficked in the federal government, serving nearly six million visitors monthly.
