After the implementation of the extensive localisation, the website was to be technically updated. For this purpose, a roadmap for implementation was developed. On the one hand, product maintenance and output were to be revised and on the other hand, the corporate design was to be adapted to the new circumstances. The technical components such as frontend technologies, TYPO3 as well as server and database systems were also to be upgraded.

A comprehensive frontend update was carried out from Node 4 to Node 12, Node Sass 4.14, Grunt 1.2 and WebPack.

In addition, the look was adapted to the current corporate design.


An upgrade from v8 LTS to the current v10 LTS was installed and the extensions used were updated. In addition, unused or no longer needed features were removed. Overall, the usability for editors was simplified with various measures.

Product area

The existing product database was removed and replaced by a product area based on TYPO3 pages. With the revision of the frontend output as well as the creation of an optimised backend, a high-quality and intuitive product area could be implemented.

Contact database

A contact person database based on TYPO3 was implemented, including extended filter functions, and in future it will also be possible to import the data via CSV.
