TYPO3 since

Rotkäppchen-Mumm, a leading supplier of sparkling wine, branded wine, and liquor in Germany, faced a complex digital challenge. Despite being united under one roof, more than 40 brands operated individual websites with separate CMS solutions and designs. In 2020, the complexity of this structure became even more apparent. Age verification and cookie consent protocols emerged as areas of particular concern, underscoring the need for a unified, streamlined digital approach across all brand platforms. 

With this new approach, Rotkäppchen-Mumm’s key goals were to centralize legal requirements, roll out new features across brands, and simplify project management and support needs for the broader organization. The answer to these challenges came in the form of toujou, a SaaS solution built on TYPO3, offered by DFAU GmbH.

Managing multiple brands for customer-centricity

In 2020, Rotkäppchen-Mumm sought a technical solution for compliant age verification and consistent consent management on their website. Their goal was not to replace existing partnerships with creative agencies, but to find a uniform system that fit all their needs. They found their answer in toujou, a SaaS solution built on TYPO3. 

With toujou’s help and in collaboration with their existing creative agency partners, Rotkäppchen-Mumm could cater to each brand’s unique marketing objectives, whether relaunching a site, starting a new one, or migrating from a different CMS. This combined effort involved everyone from brand leaders to company staff, ensuring a unified digital strategy.

With the help of Rotkäppchen-Mumm’s central IT department, toujou was able to better leverage its project management capabilities, resulting in clear responsibilities and processes for each brand’s unique needs. Customization needs were discussed, planned, and budgeted individually, leading to a partnership marked by consistency and collaborative growth.

We were looking for a single point of contact between the brand managers, the IT department and the various outside agencies. With toujou, we knew we were in the best hands at all times, not only for the reliable website technology, but also for project management.


Streamlining processes for digital platform scalability

The TYPO3 CMS, through toujou, delivered significant benefits to Rotkäppchen-Mumm. The consolidation of operations and the establishment of a uniform system landscape across 40+ brands ensured legal compliance and efficient project management.

The system’s design prioritized adaptability, facilitating the seamless integration of features for use across various brands. The toujou development team introduced Keycloak for secure content access, Mautic for holistic marketing automation, and UserCentrics for comprehensive consent management.

Each feature addressed specific needs: Keycloak ensured tailored content accessibility, Mautic streamlined marketing campaigns and lead generation, while UserCentrics provided a solution for consent management and evolving data protection requirements, emphasizing user privacy and trust.
