About Berling media
Berling Media is one of Sweden's largest and oldest publishing companies with the subsidiaries Gleerup Education, Gothia Fortbildning and Verbum. The group is publisher of niche media within health, care and education. Berling Media has 130 employees and a turnover of 330 million.
Berling Media had an inefficient structure on their web pages, which meant additional work and additional costs. They also had an e-commerce solution that did not work optimally. The goal was therefore to improve the existing e-commerce solution and streamline the content management by creating a common IT infrastructure.
Ateles developed a multistore solution based on Magento and Pimcore. Berling Media's all sites (gleerups.se, gothiafortbildning.se and verbum.se) were placed on a common platform with a common CMS. The new solution was also integrated with the Microsoft Dynamics AX business system, and one of the sites, Gothia Education, received an integrated booking section via Lega Online. By using Magento's strength as an e-commerce platform and combining Pimcore's strength in publishing and content management, a customized solution was developed that solved the needs of both e-commerce and content.
