Project overview

Extranet for Hörmann KG

In 2002, Marketing Factory set up a closed Extranet for Hörmann KG for use by Hörmann dealers and affiliated tradespeople, based on the TYPO3 content management system .

Hörmann offers dealers and tradespeople extensive information and materials relating to the product range within these so-called Dealer Forums. This includes product master data, installation manuals, price lists, training programmes, advertising resources and also a own shop.

The users of this service are authenticated via an XML-RPC specially developed for Hörmann with the LDAP server for the Hörmann merchandise management (Infor).

The Dealer Forum is currently offered in 10 national versions.
