Success Stories

Some of the biggest companies in the Nordics rely on us for developing and implementing their eCommerce, PIM and Omnichannel solutions

In the work of creating this new solution we wanted to utilize Magento’s strengths as e-commerce platform and combine with Pimcore’s strengths in publishing- and content management to meet the needs within e-commerce and content in the best possible way.

- Jonni Harrius, CEO, Ateles

About

Berling Media is one of Sweden’s largest and oldest publishing concerns and publisher of niche media within health, care, education, religious belief and conception of life. The concern has 180 employees and a turnover of SEK 380 millions.

Goal

Berling Media’s websites had an ineffective structure that lead to unnecessary additional work as well as additional costs. At the time their e-commerce solution was not operating optimally. The goal was therefore to improve the existing e-commerce solution and streamline the content management by creating a corporate IT structure.

Solution

Ateles created a multi store solution to cover this need based on Magento and Pimcore and all of Berling Media’s websites (e.g. gleerups.se, gothiafortbildning.se and verbumforlag.se) were placed on a joint platform with a joint CMS. The new solution was also integrated with the business system Microsoft Dynamics AX and one of the websites, Gothiafortbildning, received an integrated pre-order section via Lega Online. By utilizing Magento’s strengths as e-commerce platform and combining with Pimcore’s strengths in publishing- and content management a custom made solution that met the needs around e-commerce and content was created.

Result

Joint IT platform

Multi store solution that can manage cross publishing
