SAMSON offers products and systems to control all kinds of media. We specialize in control valve engineering. As a trendsetter for over 100 years, we drive forward new developments and introduce innovations to the market. We have had a considerable impact on the evolution of valves from analog components to smart control valves. We are now fully focusing on the opportunities provided to us through Industry 4.0. We are working intensively to integrate smart control valves into IoT applications.
In addition to the technical implementation of the product catalog, the customer's website was to be technically revised in the course of a responsive relaunch based on the TYPO3 content management system. At the beginning of this project, a complex database architecture had to be created for each product group. The goal was to quickly narrow down the query results to find the right product along with the associated documentation. In addition, a function to handle direct product inquiries from all across the world had to be implemented.
The responsive relaunch was focused on the intricate product catalog. By using TYPO3 7.6 and an extensive Solr configuration, the products could be structured clearly. Special attention was paid to the development of the document download area, the presentation of the sales offices and the watch lists. These lists are also used to directly connect website users to the local sales office in charge of their specific region. We used the t3kit package to quickly develop a responsive website design. The site was SEO-optimized right from the start and created with an interface to the customer's document management system.
