In 2011 the parliamentary group of the party Alliance 90/The Greens commissioned wegewerk with the relaunch of its website at www.gruene-bundestag.de. Based on the corporate design, wegewerk developed the website design and revised the entire information architecture. The goal was to design the site to be more appealing, more informative and more clearly laid out.

The new website was implemented with the open source content management system TYPO3. A special feature of the new website is its interplay with the Alfresco document management system. Content can be sent from this system directly to TYPO3 and published on the website. Alfresco makes it possible to systematize workflows and facilitate cooperation within the parliamentary group.

To ensure that the focus is on current information, all relevant current content is consolidated on overview pages by means of a new user, subject-oriented navigation system and automatic cross linking. The timeliness of the content is greatly increased by integrating external data sources (e.g. www.bundestag.de), while maintenance efforts are substantially reduced.

The new website design offers new options for showing content in an appealing way. The expanded media management also makes it possible to integrate video and live streams into the CMS. The website, particularly the structuring of the individual elements, is displayed depending on the screen size of the receiving end device. As a result of this responsive design, a separate website does not need to be created for smartphones or tablets.

The comment function under all the articles promotes more dialogue between the parliamentary group and citizens. The data-saving integration of social media functions also allows content to be transferred to social networks.
