Due to organizational changes, two websites of NS Poort and Servex needed to be migrated to a Hippo based CMS.
Xillio built an export connector, mapping script, and configured Hippo’s import connector in order to extract HTML, identify various content types, and import content to the target environment.
A proven website migration process that was economically prudent and met all project deadlines.
NS Poort (today called NS Stations) is the owner and operator of all 400+ railway stations in the Netherlands. In 2012, NS Poort changed its name to NS Stations and that transition was one of the reasons why Xillio was called in to help. The current NSpoort.nl website had to be migrated to the new NS Stations website.
Meanwhile, Servex's (catering and retail business for the stations) main function had shifted, creating the need to migrate its website, Servex.nl. An important challenge, while migrating the content, was to maintain 20+ individual branded NS Poort subsites for entities, such as Albert Heijn To Go, Swirl’s, Kiosk. The open source CMS Hippo was chosen as the target system.
