Concept & Design

A type with many good sides: Following the guiding principle "Inform - Work - Participate", emphasis was placed on a harmonious triple set of function, appearance and usability. "Heinrich" offers the full range of functions of an intranet with integrated messenger, forums and comment functions.

The concept focuses on intuitive use: elements of the personalizable and interactive dashboard can be individually placed, arranged and hidden. Whether to-do list, chat, forum posts, bookmarks, calendar or news: On the 1- to 3-column variable dashboard, these "widgets" can be arranged according to very personal needs.

Another highlight are the project rooms, which can only be used by invited members. These allow not only protected scientific communication at a high level, but also the exchange in own "communities of interest".

  • High-performance, "Google-like" search through SOLR technology.
