New CMS makes booking a train ticket in Denmark easier than ever

One of Denmark's most visited websites just got even better following an overhaul using Episerver's award-winning web content management system.

www.dsb.dk is the website for Denmark's national train system, used by more 1.5 million visitors per month to plan and book train journeys. The goal of the upgrade is to make the site easy to navigate and information easier to find. This will make it easier for the visitor to purchase tickets and travel cards online through the access to up-to-date content and information.

The use of Episerver CMS makes it very easy and quick for new information and content to be uploaded onto the site which has also been redesigned to make it easier to navigate. The new site went live november 2008.

Danish Railways (DSB) is just one of thousands of organisations and companies of all sizes around the world who are saving time and money by using Episerver to manage their websites and intranets. These include Mazda Europe, Setanta Sports and Le Creuset as well as charities such as Save The Children. Two new commercial sites built using Episerver CMS go live every 24 hours.

Anne Mette Koch, Section Manager of DSB Online, said: "We evaluated several different content management systems including the existing system from Fatwire. We were looking for a CMS that would be easy for our internal content team to administer and would enable them to quickly and easily - and with no extra costs - change content, add new products and offers and integrate with other key applications, such as our booking system. Episerver was our unanimous choice."

Episerver CMS is an open WCM platform which can easily be integrated with other systems and applications. This means that information from other technology platforms can easily be integrated. For example, external travel information is integrated into DSB's site from other Danish companies.

Peter Larsson, CEO of Episerver, said: "We specifically designed Episerver so that it would be easy for non-technical people to update their website. DSB has now freed up resources that can be used to develop new online products and services."
