Since its founding in 1989, Management Circle AG from Eschborn, Germany, has been regarded as one of the most renowned providers of professional training. Professionals and managers from all industries appreciate the high standards, practical application and extensive networking with other decision makers. Recognized experts ensure optimal knowledge transfer; the interdisciplinary exchange forms the ideal foundation for long-term networking.
Continuous training and continuing education seminars are the core business of Management Circle. Thus, it goes without saying that the seminar catalog is constantly being revised and expanded. Management Circle offers approximately 4,000 events annually and two editors update the details pages of these events several times per day. From the respective landing pages there must be a seamless path to the booking process, which takes into account different types of discounts in the context of a complex system of rebates. Management Circle chose AOE, an Open Source specialist with long-term E-Business experience and expertise in the development of web shops with sophisticated backed systems. The primary objective of Management Circle was the relaunch of the website and the seamless integration of the booking platform while significantly increasing the performance of front- and backend. For central reservations by a company’s administrative offices or procurement departments, the flexible shopping cart supports the simple and clearly arranged booking of various seminars for different participants.
The solution, developed by AOE, is based on a booking platform with connection to an Oracle database and a conference management system using a SOA layer. Seminars, content and dates are captured in the conference management system and imported onto the web platform. There, the editors edit the content and release it. If a seminar is offered on several different dates, the system automatically aggregates them on one landing page. Thus, prospective participants can access the current seminar program with a single click – and book the seminar immediately.
Management Circle needed a powerful system, with content that can be quickly and easily maintained, and with a seminar booking system operating in the background that makes finding, selecting and booking of seminars easy and intuitive for interested customers.
Management Circle is one of the leading specialists for continuing professional education for professionals and managers in the German-speaking region. The offer covers the entire spectrum of educational services.
