CMS Success Story

First Intranet for Gerresheimer AG

From zero to a central intranet for a global company. During this intranet launch the new Web User Interface was deployed for the first time.

Gerresheimer AG has a heterogeneous network infrastructure. The company contains next to the headquarter various production and administration locations. At the beginning of the project there was no intranet existing, just local databases. Important manuals and briefings were only distributed by e-mail.

Centralized information distribution of global (e.g. company news) and local (e.g. project updates) information was the main focus for the new intranet platform. Already existing global databases were integrated within the intranet.

Special TIMETOWEB CMS features used during this project


By deploying the Web User Interface, an editorial system was introduced. It allows decentralized maintenance, as well as the establishment of an uniform editorial standard within the entire company. The intuitive user interface makes an additional editorial client for the editorial staff redundant. All editing operations can be performed directly in the browser.

The Gerresheimer AG is a leading global manufacturer of specialty products made of glass and plastic for the pharmaceutical & healthcare industry. The group contains 40 production sites in Europe, America and Asia and employs approximately 9,500 people.
