PayComm starts its knowledge platform for the payment industry with CONTENS

Montag, 28. November 2005

PayComm LogoPayComm e.V. has revamped its Internet offering to include more than 6,000 information sites on cashless payment. The CONTENS Content Management Platform was used to implement the bilingual project.

On its website, PayComm e.V. offers its member firms wide-ranging information on the topic of cashless payment. The site consists of a public section and a closed section, a knowledge database exclusively for members.

The CONTENS Content Management Platform serves as the basis for all content retrieval. "With the implementation of the new CMS solution, we are not only able to prepare information more concisely and appealingly, but we can also more comfortably input and maintain content in the backend," emphasizes Julia Saswito, CEO of triplesense (, who was contracted for the project's realization.

The layout on the website is completely based on cascading style sheets (CSS) and free of any tables, thereby making it W3C-compliant. This lets editors maintain and change the site's appearance much more fluidly. Navigation was constructed based on unsorted lists and is likewise very flexible. Another noteworthy feature is the deep, seamless integration of individual applications in the editors' CONTENS interface. Among the specialized applications is one designed to administrate the password protected knowledge database for users at member firms. Employees find PayComm's knowledge database to be a valuable aid.

After implementing CONTENS, the team of editors at PayComm has now been able to create new website content much quicker and more reliably. Maintenance and publication of new pages now happens much faster, since working with CONTENS does not require any tedious training to begin editorial work. "With our new database at, we now have a transparent, competent and unrivaled library of knowledge on the Internet. This has raised PayComm's attractiveness in the entire credit card industry enormously," shares Manfred Krüger, chairman of PayComm e.V.
