Responsive Module System

To deal with a vast pool of different devices, we created a custom-tailored module system. These modules can be assembled from various pieces of content. The system then ensures that everything gets the attention it needs.

We extended the e-commerce system by adding a custom content management tool. Maintaining the site and assembling new layout blocks is intuitive and easy.

Custom CMS
System Architecture

We build a powerful middleware to securely connect the inside with the outside. A centralized product information management system provides all relevant data to the e-commerce website and all B2B salespersons – and automatically publishes the triennial collection catalog.
