Development of a company portal as a central point of contact on the web for building with clay

CLAYTEC is the specialist for clay. The family-owned company from Viersen (Germany) produces and sells clay building materials through building materials retailers and craftsmen. The founder of CLAYTEC, Peter Breidenbach, was one of the first to deal professionally with clay in the early 1980s. And developed the company into the market leader for the innovative building material in just a few years. CLAYTEC had just completed the elaborate relaunch of its website with another internet agency. For the next steps after going online, CLAYTEC engaged scope01, internet agency from Frankfurt am Main, to further optimize the site and carry out the next development steps. To develop the portal into the central place on the web for building with clay.

Pimcore as stable basis of the CLAYTEC portal

Pimcore was already set as part of the relaunch. As a Pimcore Silver Partner, scope01 was able to get started right away. In a first step, deficits were eliminated to ensure optimal functionality of the company portal. Afterwards, the user experience and the usability of the website were significantly improved. For example, the navigation was repositioned, significantly improving mobile usability. Events and news are now also presented in a more user-friendly way. In addition, scope01 increased the performance of the website and implemented several measures for search engine optimization of the site. Both technically and in terms of content. As part of the internationalization, the portal is now offered in four languages. Pimcore proves to be ideal for managing multilingual content. But also, for linking content, for example products with references, Pimcore is the optimal tool for the editors.

Symbiosis of design, technology and information

CLAYTEC's goal is not only to provide pure information about building with clay on the web. But rather to inspire people for the innovative building material. This is achieved through a company portal that first shows with opulent pictures what is possible with clay. Then the visitor is guided to the information he is looking for. In addition to references, this includes the associated products, as well as news and events. Or the search for suitable dealers and craftsmen for CLAYTEC products to find the right contact person. The central goal is to ensure that the various target groups, such as private builders or professionals, can find the right information quickly and easily at any time. For these goals, Pimcore has proven to be the ideal software.
