About the company

Vorwerk & Co. KG is a diversified international company. In its many years of company history, it has developed from a carpet manufacturer into a broad, global group whose core business is the direct marketing of various products. The selection includes household appliances, especially the multi-functional Thermomix food processors and Kobold brand vacuum cleaners as well as carpets and cosmetics.

The Project

In connection with the intranet re-launch, a group-wide international employee portal had to be created, which provides employees with personalised information that is relevant to them and enables the worldwide exchange of knowledge and information. On the basis of Microsoft SharePoint 2010, the portal was supposed to “grab” employees with its intuitive user guidance and introduce them to the world of collaboration. The implemented solution supports the employees in their daily work and therefore leads to more efficiency. Through the introduction of team sites, international collaboration has been improved significantly.

“Due to its intuitive and user-friendly interface, SharePoint is very comfortable in its practical use and that is exactly the reason why our employees have accepted it so well.”
