“What was really taking a lot of my time was the coding. It was a very time-consuming and manual process, and there was a lack of responsive design within the templates that we were building.”

Before stensul, Catalent’s email creation process was not ideal. The coding was difficult; the email design was complicated and could not be viewed well on mobile devices. stensul was not only able to help solve these problems, but has also saved Catalent time and energy, allowing their marketing team to devote resources to higher value projects.
Reduce time spent coding emails
Move to mobile-responsive emails
Standardize email design across program
"It was a very time-consuming and manual process,"
When Catalent knew they had to make changes.
Julie Bulfair, Senior Marketing Specialist at Catalent Pharma Solutions,
was frustrated by the standard email building application that she had
been using through her current marketing automation platform. “What
was really taking a lot of my time was the coding,” says Julie. “It was a very
time-consuming and manual process, and there was a lack of responsive
design within the templates that we were building.”
Additionally, there was little to no structure for the formatting in her emails, making them non-standard in design. Julie realized that she needed to find a way to make her email marketing program easier and more effective after a big a-ha moment: ”Our customers and executive team members not being able to read our emails on their mobile devices was an obvious opportunity for improvement that we needed to address immediately.”
So she started searching for an email creation platform that could solve Catalent’s challenges. As Julie was searching for a more efficient, mobile-friendly email builder, she found the solution when she came across stensul on Oracle’s App Exchange.
