dSPACE ScreenshotdSPACE, one of the leading worldwide providers of tools for the development and testing new mechatronic control systems, presents its new website concept with the help of CONTENS: the relaunch now offers users the ability to customize the site to their own specific demands, including quicker, clearer navigation, a color-coded system and additional content-specific information.

Based in Paderborn, Germany, dSPACE (www.dspace.com), has found international success with its products and has already been running its website based on CONTENS since 2001. Through self-directed efforts, the online experts at dSPACE have both brought the site up to date conceptuality as well as optically modernized it.

The content of the new conceptualization was to improve usability for visitors as well as streamline navigation. The online team was also very keen on developing a likable, user-friendly appearance on the site. The layout was thereby refreshed to meet the framework of the new launch and improve usability to make for an optimal experience.

The new concept of the dSPACE online team is to consistently put the user in full control of the site. Fast page reproduction and a very manageable navigation system lead the user to desired content quicker than ever. The helpful and unintrusive color-coding allows users to easily orient themselves on the site without any problems. Intelligent navigation elements in the content section, as well as service oriented linking to relevant information, contextually related topics and product information, complete the new conception on the dSPACE website.

DSPACE simultaneously expanded its offering of information on the website and better aimed its content at its various target groups. Next to the country-specific version for Germany, the USA, France and England, there is now an international version of the website available. DSPACE has also made its reworked information offering available to further groups, such as non-technical users, applicants and press representatives.

With the use of CONTENS, the IT team at dSPACE can now quickly create content as well as reliably operate five independent sites and three different language versions. The successful relaunch of the company website allows dSPACE to better fulfill the needs of its users. The goal to quickly give site visitors their desired information was met.
