Wyona Customer and Reference Case Studies

Globus

Challenge:
More and more people search and find their information about products and shopping opportunities online. Globus acknowledged this shift and decided to build a new online presence that would reflect key branding attributes and give customers access to relevant information around the Globus business of premium retailing.

Solution:
Based on the modern content management framework and platform Yanel a new website was designed and implemented in few months. An innovative “brand browser” was incorporated to give customers the possibility to find preferred products quickly.

Results:
Traffic and frequencies were tripled in few months after the launch. Feedback of all constituents was extremely positive. Since almost two years the website runs extremely reliable and with very low operations and maintenance costs.

What the customer is saying - Andy Brügger, head of Marketing Globus:
“... we have been extremely happy with the work of Wyona. Not only did they implement what we wanted to have, they also showed a lot of flexibility to adapt and go the extra mile. The result is very convincing!”

National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC)

Challenge:
The NEOC is the turntable for communication and information around exceptional events in Switzerland. NEOC's responsibilities include to overcome events of increases radio activity, chemical accidents or other disastrous accidents. In the case of an event the NEOC is the communication hub for the States of Switzerland. To foster communication and information exchange a web platform is used to connect Police, Military and other organizations. Requirements for reliability, security and scalability of such a platform are extremely demanding and the functionality needs to be able to manage the most complex event. An existing platform wasn’t any more capable of handling these things in an appropriate manner and at an acceptable budget, so NEOC decided to replace the existing solution.

Solution:
Using Yanel as a basis a new platform was developed in a fairly short time frame and introduced with the Euro 08. Since then the new platform ELD, targeted against national and international authorities and organizations is continously extended and adapted. Key objectives were to fillfil complex security, archiving and process requirements.

Results:
Since almost two years the platform runs extremely reliable and has never failed to support NEOC. The platform can certainly be seen as one of the more complex web applications overall. Despite the complexity maintenance and operations costs have proven to be lower than with the previous solution and the change to the new platform can be seen as a successful project.

The fact that Yanel is Open Source ensures that NAZ has full access to the source code and there are no dependencies to any vendor. Also the platform can very easily communicate with other systems.

Peach

Challenge:
Peach is manufacturing and distributing thousands of SKUs in the area of office supplies. Most of the product data is maintained in the central ERP system (Sage Office Line), but relevant data for web publication and eCommerce shop administration is missing in the ERP. To be able to distribute standardized product data to multiple eCommerce shops and websites, Peach needed a central platform to handle product data.

Solution:
Based on Yanel Wyona built “product world” for Peach. With this platform all information assets for all products can be managed and administrated centrally. Most of the data is directly imported from the ERP system, pictures and additional descriptions are entered directly into the product world platform. With the consolidated product information system Peach now can generate standardized XML-files for delivery to any eCommerce shop automatically and on schedule and can produce product sheets and price lists as needed.

Results:
With the new solution data quality increased substantially and many manual processes became obsolete resulting into substantial cost savings.

What the customer is saying, Sacha Wirch, project manager Peach:

“Thanks to the new product world platform based on Yanel we now can automate many of the previously manual processes and at the same time ensure data accuracy across the field.”
