How Neos made the difference
The goal was to develop a communication tool for the holding and its 14 brand companies, some of which even being in competition with each other: enable and encourage networking, information flow, sharing of know-how … create a „ONE Feeling“.
We chose Neos to achieve this goal because, in our eyes, it is made for what was our major demand with this project – a flexible application character paired with editorial manageability.
Neos and the underlying Flow framework helped us building …
- ... a user-configurable dashboard page
- ... an employee directory with a lightning-fast search (thanks to the comfortable integration of Elastic Search)
- ... a news-and-events module with social features such as comments, likes etc
- ... document management on a per-brand basis with tagging, filtering, sorting and highly granulated access control
Extendability/Application Framework (Flow)
Neos’ Flow basis facilitates flexible custom development, enabling us to e.g. implement an elaborated media access control system to manage multiple user groups and levels in frontend and backend.
- Simple and high-performance Integration of the REACT framework and – thanks to Fusion – development of JSON templates required for REACT
- Very smooth Elastic Search integration and support
Intuitive Backend Interface/Usability
Nemetschek ONE has document branches for each of the 14 brands.
The company’s editors are working distributedly all over the globe, and – no dedicated training was necessary for them in order to be able to administer their relevant contents.
„Neos made it possible to gather content from Editors of all 14 Nemetschek Brands in an orderly and easy-to-manage fashion while still providing a maintainable, highly customized frontend with an „application character.“
