Data volumes as a challenge
PALFINGER operates in 32 countries worldwide and has production sites at 34 locations in Europe, the CIS countries, North and South America, and Asia. What does that mean? A large amount of company data needs to be entered and then, of course, translated. What already sounds like a lot of work when you read it is an enormous effort in practice. A challenge that urgently needed to be met and overcome.
A case for Pimcore
Pimcore's 70 product page templates have brought order to PALFINGER's data jungle. Thousands of products can now be easily aggregated, maintained, and distributed – including their dependencies, of course. This enormously simplifies the maintenance process on a national level, and thanks to the extension to up to 23 language trees, the translation process was optimized as well.
Intuitive, easy, flexible – from front to back(end)
The result is impressive. Both the frontend and the backend of the website have received a stunning upgrade. Thanks to responsive design, an optimally integrated dealer and service search, and the extensive job portal, users can find their way around with ease. Beyond that, the multi-client system also creates optimum conditions for the integration of future follow-up projects such as PALFINGER Marine. This once again shows that Pimcore, as a centralized solution, helps enterprises master major challenges such as the breaking down of data silos.
