KGAL is a physical capital asset manager located near Munich. It offers private and institutional investors intelligent investment possibilities in physical assets and innovative financial solutions for companies. KGAL was seeking a service provider who could handle not only the technical implementation of a new website, but also considerably more extensive future web projects such as customer self-service portals. AOE convinced KGAL that it was the right partner for the job.
The KGAL website was dated, no longer suiting the needs of a modern company. The Content Management System (CMS) being used was also no longer up to the task, and needed to be replaced. KGAL wanted a completely new portal, with new concept and design that included a community-based, future-proof Open Source CMS – offering the company the possibility to interact with its customers in ways not possible to date. One of the requirements for the new portal was the ability to publish news and events in combination with extensive image galleries.
AOE solved the task with the Enterprise-class web CMS TYPO3, and implemented the module aoe_events especially for KGAL. The module contains an events calendar and also serves as a news module. To increase flexibility, the integrated image gallery functionality can also function autonomously outside of news or event records. From a technical perspective, the three sections “News”, “Events” and “Images” are tightly interconnected.
Using the “Download” section, potential customers can download information material sorted by markets, companies or products, as well as press materials. A specially developed online shopping cart allows users to order publications in printed form.
In the few months during development, AOE responded with agile processes to the changing needs of KGAL. The client created the content for the new portal during the development phase, requiring a number of adaptations. AOE advised and assisted the client especially during this time and also added new visual elements to the design envisioned by the agency fischerAppelt.
For over 40 years, KGAL has created innovative financing solutions. The company offers private and institutional investors share opportunities with its expert knowledge in the fields of real estate, aircraft, infrastructure, ships, private equity, and forests. It has a leading position in its market. As an active asset manager, KGAL follows all investments from start to finish, for the sustained benefit of its clients.
