PERI ScreenshotPERI has migrated its entire online offer to CONTENS 3.0 enterprise. At the same time the company's website was redesigned to now offer simpler access to the products of PERI as well as a clearer, facilitated navigation. With the new project filter visitors of the website have faster and more systematic access to the extensive project database. Following the international website, the sites of many further countries will be migrating to CONTENS 3.0 enterprise.

PERI (, the biggest provider and manufacturer of formwork and scaffolding systems for the building industry in the world, has modernized its entire online offer on time for the trade fair BAUMA. The simplified navigation and the revised structure allow visitors to access information much easier. The motif on the home page which changes every month, points out current topics to the visitor.

By migrating to the latest version of CONTENS 3.0 enterprise, PERI benefits from a technologically entirely new content management platform. It convinces by many improvements – a user interface optimized to satisfy editors' needs as well as noticeably accelerated working processes.

The heart of the PERI website is the extensive product and project application which was easily transferred during the update, making only small adjustments. The application based on project-specific databases allows easy access to the extensive product and project portfolio of PERI. In the process the projects refer to the implemented PERI products and vice versa. With the optimized and reloading project filter, visitors of the website can now select to view construction projects in specific countries which use specific PERI products. For an easier and faster administration PERI adopted a number of CONTENS modules. The company used the newsletter module for the first time this year for invitations to the BAUMA. Newsletters can now be created quickly within the CMS environment, using content from CONTENS, and then sent directly. The FAQ module by CONTENS makes it easier for editors to respond to frequently asked questions in the service and support area.

After the launch of the international PERI website, many other country websites will be updated. Thanks to the multi-client capability of CONTENS which allows to create and manage an unlimited number of online projects within one installation, integrated multilingualism, and Unicode support for the display of any font on the website, PERI is well-prepared for the realization of the international online projects.

Stefan Drescher, Head of the Internet division at PERI, is happy about the result: "The improved user interface and the simplified working processes in CONTENS make work a lot easier for our editors and minimize costs for additional training."
