„Pimcore enables us to convince customers through innovation and customer-oriented service.“

The realization of the comprehensive Pappas websites for Austria, Germany, and Hungary is based on Pimcore. It serves as a multi-tenant system for the three countries. The biggest challenge in terms of data technology was the implementation of a joint, comprehensive online shop for new and used vehicles. All vehicles are managed in the system, automatically forwarded to external portals, and maintained internally, thus ensuring simplified maintenance.
In addition, each individual dealer has access to a dealer portal. In this portal sales and price tags can be printed out standardized for all cars including QR codes, photos, logos, and locations.
