Founded in 2013, Impuls Medien is a Christian Media Service with offices in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The organisation aims to connect the Christian community with the publishing of articles and important updates, and have crossed one billion impressions worldwide using its website GLAUBE.at.
Online Portal, iOS & Android Apps
Impuls Medien required a two-phase development for their faith website GLAUBE.at, with the first phase being the website development and the second phase for mobile app development in iOS and Android.
GLAUBE.at, an online Christian Portal from Impuls Medien, endeavoured to publish articles on Christianity and provide an enriching platform for Christians, all around the globe.
Since Impuls Medien wanted GLAUBE.at to be available both as a web and a mobile app, we outlined for a CMS that can handle the very requirements and provide utmost stability and responsiveness at all times. Hence we chose TYPO3 for the job, and by far, it has been an excellent CMS choice.
Phase One kicked off by presenting Impuls Medien with the website design. Once it was approved and developed, we integrated the website into TYPO3 CMS, resulting in an easier website content management. To publish the news articles effectively, we developed a TYPO3 extension and combined it with the CMS.
Phase Two focused on mobile app development for GLAUBE.at. We suggested a hybrid app development with the Ionic framework to create native-feeling mobile apps in both iOS and Android. For making the content management in the mobile app seamless, we created an API and connected it with the TYPO3 system. This approach helped us save huge in development time and also made the entire process remarkably cost-effective.
With GLAUBE.at, Impuls Medien aimed to spread goodness and inform the Christian community with the latest updates of Christian parishes and organisations. The website made the publication of articles simpler, and the use of TYPO3 made the handling of multilingual content easier and effective.
GLAUBE.at is now seen to be a reliable source for the latest updates in the Christian community. With the online portal, Impuls Medien saw an impressive increase of readers from all parts of the world, especially Austria. The release of the mobile application was another milestone which maximised the reachability, allowing readers to access the content anytime, anywhere.
