What makes it special: FirstSpirit is operated for the showcase via Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the cloud and is therefore highly scalable and available.

Automotive sales portal
Mercedes-Benz Vertrieb Deutschland portal
A new dealer portal at Mercedes Benz Vertrieb Deutschland has improved communication between the headquarters and the sales and service branches.
This automotive producer has a central content management system (CMS) for the communication between the headquarters and its dealerships and branches. Materna based the technical design of the new retail portal on the CMS from FirstSpirit and implemented it in the context of an agile development project within around six months. They prepared for the introduction of the new editing system by providing an intensive training programme for editors as well as migration activities. Application management and monitoring round this services package off.
After going live, Materna assessed the content design of various maintained contents in the portal by carrying out content reviews according to heuristic analysis criteria and made specific recommendations for optimizations. Materna also collected requirements in the context of concept-design workshops and advised the customer on how to use the retail portal for further sales units and to continue its development.
Rohde & Schwarz brand portal
Rohde & Schwarz brand portal
Founded more than 80 years ago, the technology group is one of the world's leading manufacturers of measurement, information and communication technology for professional users.
Within the framework of an agile development project, Materna is further developing the Group website on the basis of FirstSpirit. The starting point was based on complex FirstSpirit templates, some of which were customized.
The further development and implementation of new requirements are aimed at improving usability, increasing the performance of the site and increasing the satisfaction of website visitors.
For this purpose, coding guidelines were established in order to make optimum use of the FirstSpirit content management system. In addition, the existing templates and output channels were consolidated. In order to keep the CMS updatable, individual code constructs were removed and FirstSpirit standards were established.
Materna's development team implements defined user stories within the framework of an agile fixed-price offer. For this purpose, Scrum guidelines as well as the agile procedure were implemented at the customer to ensure an optimal course of the development project.
