Montag, 8. Dezember 2008

Böllhoff ScreenshotBöllhoff, an international, family run group of fastening and assembly technology companies, is using the content management platform from CONTENS within the scope of an international re-launch. The bilingual company website was re-launched under www.boellhoff.de, and under www.boellhoff.com the international portal, which will contain within the next two years all of the 22 country websites.

CONTENS facilitates work for editors

In a comprehensive selection procedure with many well known CMS providers, the project managers at Böllhoff decided on CONTENS. The decisive factors were, among others, the easy modular expandability as well as the quick-to-learn user interface from CONTENS. In this way, specific applications, such as the complete product catalog or the extensive range of services offered by Böllhof are easy to create and maintain. The clearly structured user interface enables editors without programming knowledge to create content and publish quickly. According to Mr. Stefan Stübbe, the Technical Project Leader at Böllhoff: "Through the many intuitive functions, our employees are able to save valuable time working with CONTENS."

Multinational web presence – easily realized

A further aspect for the selection of CONTENS was the integrated administration of numerous country websites within one installation. Each website can be created in many language versions. Within the editors interface from CONTENS, all the country websites and language versions can be accessed and maintained quickly. The sophisticated rights system ensures that only the editors with sufficient rights have access on particular country or language versions.

Project realization with Elephant Seven

The CONTENS partner, Elephant Seven, (Bielefeld, www.e-7.com), conceived the new network architecture and took over the realization of the whole project.


BÖLLHOFF – an international, family run group of companies in fastening and assembly technology – a strategic partner for the innovative enterprise.
