HEINEKEN Switzerland AG

HEINEKEN Switzerland is one of the leading companies in the Swiss beer and beverage market and has been present in Switzerland since 1984. It operates two breweries in Chur and Lucerne and employs around 620 people. The brands include Heineken, Calanda and Eichhof.



How Neos made the difference

HEINEKEN Switzerland wanted to provide various target groups (media representatives, employees, shareholders and interested parties) with appropriate and comprehensive information on the website. The new multilingual corporate website needs to radiate simplicity and clarity, display news and Twitter posts, as well as the current stock market price, and thus bring people closer to the diverse world of HEINEKEN Switzerland.

ongoing decided to employ the easy-to-use Neos CMS. This offers the ideal platform to manage multilingual websites and guarantees the integration of various plug-ins (Exchange API, Twitter, search function and “AgeGate”, which checks the age of the users).  This CMS also enables content to be edited and supplemented quickly and intuitively.

Due to the existing corporate design of HEINEKEN Switzerland, ongoing achieved a cost-effective implementation of the website layout. Website managers can position special teaser elements individually as well as in an ever-changing constellation - and of course images, videos and downloads can also be displayed. In addition to the "normal" news, Twitter posts are automatically displayed in the news feed, which saves repetitive work for editors.

Neos CMS offers editors the option to publish and deactivate content in a time-controlled manner and to preview changes as part of a closed user group's approval process.


„Thanks to Neos CMS, we conserve valuable resources because our editors can make changes quickly and easily. We also appreciate the simple connection to third-party systems, which also minimises complexity“
