Responsive, dynamic and usability-friendly: comspace relaunches the Cofely website

The website of the energy service provider Cofely recently went online. The website has a fresher design, offers some extensions of content and is more comfortable for the editors as regards the creation and maintenance of website content. We have realized the technical implementation for our customer, based on the version 8.5 of the OpenCms Content Management System.

The Cofely Deutschland GmbH, subsidiary of the French GDF SUEZ group, has been active on the German market for over 130 years and has currently four business divisions in place – systems engineering, energy services, facility services and refrigeration. On the new website the company offers contemporarily and user-friendly prepared information to its customers and interested parties regarding building- and refrigeration technology, technical building management and innovative energy services.

What are the most important changes regarding the website?

Especially the editorial staff profits from greater usability when it comes to maintaining website content: content maintenance is now possible directly through the clearly designed OpenCms frontend and can take place – for example by drag and drop - much easier, faster and more comfortable than before. Still the editorial stuff does not need any programming skills. In an introduction our project team has familiarized Cofely’s marketing staff with the innovations and functions of the content management system. Another advantage of the internet presence: the responsive design website is optimized for mobile access of all terminal devices.

Also as regards content the website has been modernized and extended, especially in the sections Career, Solutions and References. In the considerably more comprehensive career-area applicants can find an online application form for all of the numerous job vacancies as well as for initial applications. Special information is provided for the various application target groups (qualified employees, managers, graduates, students and apprentices). Furthermore employees give account of their jobs and tell you about the advantages Cofely offers them as an employer. The “Reference” section contains some representative and detailed customer projects. The section “Solutions” was also restructured as regards content and offers much additional information.

The creative agency Hochhaus digital is responsible for the concept and the design of the website. The concept for the Employer Branding was developed by the Kommunikationsagentur Köhler.
