Stadtwerke Lemgo GmbH is a medium-sized utility company in the city of Lemgo in East Westphalia. They operate at various levels of the value chain, ensuring a high level of utility reliability within the city and the region. With its award-winning and sustainable energy supply concept, the Stadtwerke are strongly committed to resource and climate protection. Thanks to the low-code platform Intrexx, Stadtwerke Lemgo benefit from a dynamically adaptable and secure intranet.

Stadtwerke Lemgo was looking for an intranet that would meet many requirements. The dynamic adjustability in general, but also the option to manage and further develop the system independently in the long term were particularly important here. Because they could manage the Intrexx system on their existing server environment, data protection requirements could also be met. The portal solution was designed to provide employees with access to internal news and to communicate with each other. 

The KI Enterprise Portal: one solution for everyone

In addition to a front-page editor (CMS), the KI Enterprise Portal combines not only information but also collaboration and communication tools with the underlying Intrexx Share application to create a holistic portal solution. The look and feel of the KI Enterprise Portal is based on popular social media platforms so that even inexperienced users can quickly get to grips with it. The activity stream ensures that new posts and activities in the portal are always available to everyone.

Information at a glance is provided by portlets on the start page, such as an address book (with quick links to third-party systems or internal pages), upcoming birthdays or the quote of the day. The whole thing is supplemented by Intrexx Share modules whose functionalities seamlessly integrate into the Enterprise Portal. In addition to groups and projects, appointments can also be organized or the "digital bulletin board" can be used.

With the help of the Enterprise Portal, all employees are always up to date - regardless of where they work. In times when many people are also working from home offices or remotely, this is a great added value.

Cooperation offers potential for development

Even during the implementation phase, all employees from the various departments were asked what requirements they had in their daily work and how digitalization via Intrexx could offer added value. The suggestions and ideas were collected by Yannik Siebert, IT System Manager and instrumental in the project organization, and then prioritized or defined as possible use cases. Thanks to the internal resources, the customer can develop applications and integrate them into the Enterprise Portal after the basic system was delivered.

Industry-specific solutions such as a tool for standpipe rental or digital visitor management have already been developed in part by the customers themselves or will be developed together with KI GmbH in the future and then supported on a project basis. Involving the Stadtwerke employees step by step creates a continuously evolving system that is both accepted and put into practice within the company.
