Federchimica is the Italian Federation of the chemical industry. For this organization and its 16 Associations, appropriate and timely communication is a critical issue. Targets are very wide and complex: government institutions, media, associations, government, unions, movements, environmentalists, consumers, political parties, representatives of specific audiences (parents, elders, etc.), professional associations, local authorities, diplomatic missions, chambers of commerce, opinion leaders, primary and secondary schools, universities.
The existing CMS platform was based on a custom solution that did not satisfy the client’s needs. A more flexible, robust and easy to use platform was necessary in order to migrate Federchimica and all Association web sites. For this reason they asked us for a reliable, scalable and easy to use CMS platform (based on .Net architecture) in order to allow their non technical personnel to quickly update contents and images, upload documents, and create new pages using templates and existing modules. From the users’ point of view, it was required to design and implement an easy to use and flexible user interface, to provide trouble-free access to content and documents.
