Lambertus Verlag had a rudimentary content management system in place before adopting SiteFusion CMS. Their CMS was limited in its functionality, only catering to digital products, and lacking the ability to provide structured XML content.
As a small publisher with a staff of less than 50 employees, they also faced a significant challenge in managing the scope of such a project. Initiating the project, managing costs, evaluating various CMS providers, selecting SiteFusion, and implementing the software posed considerable difficulties. However, despite the complexities involved, the integration process ultimately proved successful.
Another noteworthy challenge was conducting a comprehensive analysis of the publisher‘s internal business processes and translating them into technical workflows. This task required collaborative efforts to thoroughly understand and document the existing workflows, and then translate them into a digital framework that could be effectively implemented within SiteFusion.
After the successful integration of SiteFusion the goal was to import the legacy data. This plan had to be discarded, as the data hasn’t been created in the data format XML. SiteFusion integration partner C.H.Beck.Media.Solutions took over the new data entry.
