Umwelttechnik BW GmbH
Umwelttechnik BW GmbH, Landesagentur für Umwelttechnik und Ressourceneffizienz Baden-Württemberg (UTBW), is the state agency for environmental technology and resource efficiency in Baden-Württemberg. The state agency commissioned 1xINTERNET to develop a multisite solution as a platform for their state wide digital network. The result is a successful and mutually advantageous resource for the agency. The implementation of a comprehensive search and filter function greatly improved the user experience.

Corporate website and portal of all players
Umwelttechnik-BW, the portal for environmental technology and resource efficiency in Baden-Württemberg, sees itself as a common information and action space for all stakeholders.

From the client
Main features of the project
1xINTERNET created a uniform base for all sites with the 1xDXP Multisite Management System. This allows enough room to keep the individuality of each site and at the same time makes it possible to create high-quality, relevant and well-prepared content accessible on all sites.
A design system was created to align the design of each platform in a consistent way. The design of each site was broken down to see how they could be reflected within the design system. The design system was then created with all the required components that could then be shared across all platforms.
CMS & Hosting
1xINTERNET created a powerful 1xCMS to operate sustainably. A set of modules were created for the editors of the state agency with a view to future projects, in order to be able to create medium projects as efficiently as possible and integrate them into the digital landscape. A Drupal-based backend technology was implemented, hosted by 1xINTERNET.
Filter & search
Thanks to the unified code base, the use of a distributed, multi-tenant full-text search engine became possible. Users can now access all content, offers and partners from a single search box (via the Elastic Search Engine).
The filter function, which works with key terms, illustrates comprehensive information on companies, funding programs, projects, awards, news and case studies across several levels.
Integrated security, maintenance & support
Thanks to the uniform code base, security, maintenance and support were integrated and consolidated across platforms.
