Wuppertal, October 5th, 2021 – netzkern – part of Macaw has implemented an outstanding, efficient cloud-based digital experience for RWE based on Sitecore. Among other things, RWE achieves a key advantage with the Sitecore Experience Accelerator (SXA) introduced and customized by netzkern – a solution that enables companies to independently realize professional web and microsites in their corporate design.

RWE was the first netzkern customer to rely on the user-friendly Sitecore website construction kit in order to implement websites on a wide range of topics, projects and companies belonging to the group as independently as possible in the look and feel of the RWE website. This enables the online editorial and corporate communications teams to develop and refine their digital offerings freely, flexibly and professionally ­– and without incurring external costs. No developing effort is required to create a new page with existing styles and components. Simply set up the content and the new microsite can be up and running online in a few hours – all in the corporate design with the possibility of personalization, optimization and scaling in the cloud, while embedded with Sitecore’s best practices on page structures. Through this, RWE was able to streamline and accelerate the processes involved in the digital experience and can now act more independently of IT and agency partners in its representation.

For the outstanding overall digital experience in the cloud and this beacon application, netzkern and RWE received an Honorable Mention at the Sitecore Experience Awards 2021 in the “Best Innovation with Emerging Technologies” category. Several hundred companies from Germany and around the world apply for the Sitecore Award every year. 

“Sitecore Experience Accelerator enables us to quickly and easily set up and independently expand websites with a powerful user experience in corporate design. For a growing and changing group like RWE, it is vital to be able to develop new digital offerings in an agile and efficient manner, and we are thrilled to receive the award. It underlines the great importance we attach to innovative, efficient solutions that save resources and accelerate processes in ​​online communication and IT,” comments Dietmar Köller, head of online IT at RWE.

“This year, we were once again able to impress with an outstanding customer project at the Sitecore Experience Awards. The award in the “Best Innovation with Emerging Technologies” category proves that our services excel in propelling successful, future-proof marketing . With SXA, RWE saves time, external agency costs and flexibility in displaying themed websites and microsites,” says Daniel Schulten, managing director of netzkern – part of Macaw.
