Pöppelmann is one of the leading German manufacturers in the plastics processing industry. From its headquarters in Lohne (Lower Saxony), the company serves its customers in more than 90 countries. Today, the company has six production sites and around 2,500 employees worldwide, operating a total of 700 plastics processing machines as well as an in-house mould-making centre (WTZ).
Interlinking of the System Landscape
Pöppelmann had already worked together with dotSource to implement a new product information management (PIM) system and thereby establish a »single source of truth« for product data. Via customised interfaces, the content management system (CMS) was connected to this data source to provide a user-friendly working environment. The automated supply of product data from the PIM solution enables Pöppelmann's employees to access relevant information and resources more easily and quickly.
Working Towards Long-Term Success
To meet the company's individual requirements in the best possible way, the dotSource expert team decided to implement a minimum viable product (MVP). Through the solution-oriented MVP approach, valuable feedback for the ongoing project was collected during the migration. Over the course of the project, Pöppelmann's employees were already trained in using Magnolia so that they would be able to work independently with the CMS as soon as it went live.
Future-Proof in the Cloud
With Magnolia's cloud-based set-up as a platform as a service (PaaS), Pöppelmann can now effectively and centrally manage the content workflows for its international websites. The scalability of the cloud solution provides a secure basis for the company's future growth. Moreover, the cloud set-up reduces the load time of the website, which has a positive impact on the SEO ranking.
dotSource saw the potential of our PIM system and provided us with the CMS from Magnolia to harness its full potential. Thanks to the close collaboration, we not only have a new system, but have also been empowered to independently and proficiently work with it in the future.
