A new way of presenting specialist legal information

Website relaunch of Stollfuß Medien with responsive design and optimised backend

The relaunched Stollfuß Medien website presents itself in a modern metro-design. The clear layout provides direct access to sections such as application support, specialist databases and the webshop. The website’s frontend is equipped with the latest web technology. Thanks to HTML5 the Foundation Framework allows fully responsive design. Whether it is on a tablet display in portrait mode, flatscreen or beamer projection: the new website adapts to customer’s screen size and orientation so that the structure of the content remains intact and the readability is guaranteed even on small displays. Through embedded fonts and colour gradients Stollfuß Media’s corporate design is featured consistently on any device. Moreover, this embedding reduces the quantity of data resulting in positive effect at the mobile access. Last but not least, with its apps "Stollfuß Kiosk" and "Stgb – The Tax Code" the legal publishing house aims at modern tablets. Multimedia content is stored in HTML 5-compliant MPEG- 4, instead of Flash.

The site is also optimised for Android and iOS-based tablets. With new interfaces we have created an efficient triad in the backend: the editorial maintenance of the web page contents is done in the Content Management System Umbraco in which inserted text, links and graphics are automatically adjusted to the corporate layout. As the second system the NEWBOOKS Metadata Management offers access to bibliographic metadata of judicial publications. In this system all fields of ONIX exchange format can be edited. In order to map Stollfuß-own product range, new Stollfuß-specific product categories have been implemented. Online orders are exported daily and read into the ERP MSH. The three systems were networked and coordinated so that redundant processes are excluded. In particular, the independent processing of web page content and product master data provides a logistical advantage, because the effort for data maintenance is significantly reduced.
