Ampco Flashlight Holding BV
Ampco Flashlight is an international rental specialist in professional lighting, sound, video and rigging solutions. For over 35 years they have been providing all-round services to broadcasting companies, theatres, and organisers of various live and corporate events.
Ampco Flashlight operates at the high end of the entertainment industry, serving a broad and varied customer base, such as commercial and public broadcasters, (musical) producers, theatre companies, and event organisers. Their recent projects include the live TV-shows So You Think You Can Dance and The Voice of Holland, music events Vrienden van Amstel Live and Pinkpop, and international theatre shows such as Riverdance.
Ampco Flashlight is part of the Ampco Flashlight Group, a conglomerate of companies with each their own area of expertise.
The Ampco-flashlight.com website operates in parallel with a number of sister sites, each running on their specific CMS-system which makes central maintenance a complex task.
Ampco Flashlight Group is looking for a versatile solution to combine these sites, allowing for easier maintenance by a single website administrator. One coherent design, suitable for a business involved in the entertainment industry, should be used for all linked sites, clearly reflecting Ampco Flashlight Group's corporate identity.
The company will be looking for a cost-efficient solution which holds sustainable opportunities for the future.
Ampco Flashlight Group opts for the Liferay Portal Community Edition as their preferred solution based on its simple maintenance and excellent branding and labelling opportunities.
Liferay Portal also offers much needed flexibility and complies with various open-standards, while the wide range of out-of-the-box functionalities allows for the desired cost effectiveness.
The Liferay team at Componence takes care of the entire project, from conceptualisation to launch of the site, and combines the standard Liferay functionalities with various customised portlets, such as personal profiles, video, multi-language support, new products, and a twitter feed.
Within a few weeks, five sites are being created, built and delivered, closely linked in both design as well as maintenance:
www.audiodeal.nl / www.lightdeal.nl
The new Ampco Flashlight Group sites are based on the latest technologies which enables the company to adapt to any changing future demands.
