After a short project period, the relaunch of "noraCentral", the intranet of the Weinheim flooring specialist nora systems, was realized – based on the flexibly adaptable "ready to run" portal solutions from VANTAiO.

The challenge: SAP standard yes, but maximize utilization

nora systems had extensive experience with the SAP portal in advance, but only in SAP standard mode. The relaunch planned since 2015 continued on this basis – however, the possibilities of the system were supposed to be optimally exploited. The goal was a central, enterprise-wide intranet with a clear focus on content.

The decision for VANTAiO was fast: The flexibly adaptable portal solutions convinced from the start with their budget-saving and time-saving ready-to-run approach, which is ideally suited to medium-sized companies.

The implementation: attractive, intuitive and responsive

Based on the SAP portal and the VANTAiO products workFrame, portalManager, documentManager and universalSearch, "noraCental 2.0", an intranet with an attractive interface and an extremely easy-to-use editor that also supports mobile devices, was developed within a very short time. The comfortable, comprehensive search and the opportunity to display country-specific news are just two of many components on the way to a modern digital workplace.

The result: positive feedback and more efficiency in the daily work

Already at the start of the pilot operation in Q1/2017, the users were extremely impressed; the editors went to work motivated with a new interface and tools. The new intranet is the gateway to the nora world, even on the go, and even on the mobile phone. Access is simple via the Internet via the secure communication channel "https". Content, documents, applications and processes are provided to the nora employees in an authorization-dependent manner.

André Wieprecht, CIO/Corporate Organization & IT, nora systems GmbH: "noraCentral 2.0 – this is intranet with a WOW effect! VANTAiO has more than fulfilled our requirements, the expertise of the entire team impressed us. This is how portal projects are fun. "
