Identifix Internal Content Management Tool

Identifix subscribes to data feeds from major automobile OEM’s, such as Ford and GM.  Identifix also maintains a database of transcribed solutions as use cases from their hotline call center.  Both of these data asset feeds need to be continually monitored and cleaned up to maximize usability of the digital assets. Previously this was a manual task, completed by Solera employees known as data authors. This project is a 30/30 opportunity to replace that team with an internal software asset which enables the same clean-up and maintenance of the data automatically.  All that is needed to enable this 30/30 effort is upfront programming, which this capitalization memo addresses.
