  • Dennemeyer Group

    After finding out that support for their existing solution will be discontinued, IP management firm Dennemeyer has set out to find a worthy successor, with less risk. Open source ECM system Sensenet ECM proved to be just the thing.

    Luxemburg-based Dennemeyer Group has been around the intellectual property management market for well over 50 years as a full-service provider for organizations willing to protect their inventions. Starting out as a law firm based in the capital city of a small country, the Dennemeyer Group now has offices in different countries around the world, including Luxembourg, Germany, Poland, Croatia, France, Great Britain, Romania, United Arab Emirates, Australia, Japan and the United States.

    Late 2013, the former system which Dennemeyer used to maintain and search for documents has been pulled off the market. Deriving from its proprietary nature and the fact that the manufacturer has seized to provide further support for the product, the company had to look for a scalable, robust, reliable yet affordable alternative.

    Negotiations between Sense/Net Ltd. and Dennemeyer started January 2014, by the creation of a proof of concept and some conference calls with references of the same volume. According to the initial estimation, the goal was to add a couple of million documents to the system, with a few hundred named users managing them. Obviously, the Dennemeyer Group needed to make sure that Sensenet ECM was up for the task.

    Having their own, in-house .NET development team, the second step was to organize an official Sensenet ECM training in order to get familiar with the basic concepts of the software and learn how to tackle certain business problems by using the provided building blocks. After the training, we began an intensive, support and consultation-based development phase, during which seasoned Sense/Net professionals made on premise visits to the Dennemeyer Group HQ in Luxemburg to assist in formulating the architecture of the system and sharing best practices learnt along the way. Finally, the two development teams divided the work amongst them to ensure that the migration project meets the deadline set forth by the management.

    By late November 2014, Dennemeyer finished the migration of 3 000 000 documents into Sensenet ECM from their previous system, all equipped with the appropriate meta information and linked to the relevant parts of the system. This number grows by a thousand each day, managed by a staff of 60 people – user accounts that were added via AD Synchronization. Thanks to the flexible front end of Sensenet ECM, the UI mimics the one of the previous system, so users do not have to get used to a new user experience from one day to another.

    The system itself is used by staff in several countries across various time zones to archive documents related to specific business scenarios in the IP management business, such as archiving client and supplier invoices whereas the materials closely related to the actual IP Rights are stored in an external system, connected to Sensenet ECM. Departments are organized into different workspaces, each with specific permissions. Upload pages are designed to ask for compulsory information with field validation, thus ensuring that all documents are properly tagged. Dependent drop-down menus guarantee that only the relevant fields of a sub-category are shown upon choosing the main one, which speeds up the upload process.

    By choosing Sensenet ECM, Dennemeyer did not only ensure the procurement of a robust and flexible solution, but also made sure they will not step in the same trap again. Being open-source and having a network of international Partners, there is no risk of losing support and ending up with an outdated system virtually 0.

  • TransPerfect

    TransPerfect is a global family of companies that provides language and technology solutions that power global business. One of their cutting edge software products is a virtual data room solution called TransCEND, supporting large scale mergers and acquisitions. As both the general demand for such a service and the number of documents involved in the individual M&A processes grew, they needed to place their service on a robust and scalable platform. Sense/Net Ltd. was able to deliver just that.

    In the 21st century, document disclosure during a merger and acquisition process does not happen in a physical data room anymore, but this does not mean that the number of documents to review has decreased. The new age calls for a virtual data room solution, where the parties can share their documents complying with the same security measures as before. TransPerfects’s Deal Interactive is a steady player on the virtual data room market. With their continuously growing customer base, they were looking for a new platform that would make it easier for the company to maintain the stability in their offering.

    Scalability was a must as having to install multiple instances of the application proved to be one of the most time-consuming tasks. Robustness on the other hand is just as important provided there is an ever growing workload and amount of data deriving from the increasing number of digitalized documents (an individual customer may have up to a million documents to store in the system). Thirdly, there is the always actual fact, that client requirements are a moving target. As new needs emerge, TransPerfect needs to make sure the platform is flexible enough to be tailored to the clients’ liking. 

    The company approached Sense/Net Ltd. well knowing what they wanted: a scalable, robust and sophisticated platform that has the ability to handle all this data, by only having to install once, all managed on a central administration interface. Furthermore, overall extensibility is imperative in order to to avoid pitfalls and to ensure that TransCEND (the successor of Deal Interactive) remains in the race.

    The TransCEND team created a cutting edge architecture, picked the right technologies and 3rd party libraries and tools, purchasing licenses for those tools to help Sense/Net Ltd. team customize Sensenet ECM platform to scale to TransCEND’s VDR requirements. Sense/Net Ltd. team crafted a cutting edge implementation meeting all the existing and future expectations demanded by TransCEND. By basing TransCEND on the Sensenet ECM platform, we ensured scalability, robustness and extensibility for the following years. Thanks to the extreme customizability of the user interface and the ability of it to communicate with our OData REST API, we created a state of the art visual experience for everyone using the data room on virtually any device.

    Under the hood, we implemented a complex logic by combining the built-in and custom permissions to ensure the appropriate people get access to the information they need, but no one else. Combining this with the document preview module, we created a fully functional document viewer working in the browser, allowing users to add redactions, watermarks and other anti-fraud measures to secure documents.

    All of this has encouraged TransPerfect to form a long-term strategic alliance with Sense/Net Ltd. warranting their new versions to meet all demands of the 21st century.

    Uniting two banks under a single banner.


    FHB Bank submitted a tender for the construction of their public facing website. As the winning applicant, Sense/Net Ltd. gained the possibility to provide a solution and as it turned out, much more.


    Few years ago, FHB chose to reconstruct their website; both the looks and the publication system. In order to get this done, they have submitted a tender which Sense/Net Ltd. won. During the preliminary negotiations, the managers of FHB found out that Sensenet ECM is a far more capable software than the one they already had a wireframe for. Learning about the various features within, and the help from our very capable developer team, the final system based on the Sensenet ECM engine exceeded all previous expectations.


    FHB Land Credit and Mortgage Bank Company was founded by four major Hungarian banks and the Hungarian Ministry of Finance in 1997 to create a long-term financing opportunity and thus promoting real estate investments in the country. After years of successful operation, the privatization of the bank began in 2003 and was finished by 2007, when ÁPV Rt. (State Privatization and Holding Co.) sold their packet of shares and 50% +1 vote by introducing them to the international and Hungarian financial markets. With the merger of Allianz Hungary and FHB in 2011, the bank gained its form as it functions today.


    As a bank, security, punctuality and the fast flow of information are the most important characteristics FHB has to deliver. In order to fulfill these requirements, they need a system enabling their employees to collaborate with each other and share information with the public the fastest and easiest way possible. Through the ability of extreme customization in Sense/Net, our developers have managed to create such a straightforward interface, which can be operated by virtually any employee of the bank without the need of thorough IT knowledge.


    Integrating everything into one system renders it possible to have a public facing website, an intranet and 6-8 microsites, all running on the same platform, all manageable with one software. Thanks to the fully automated publishing system, creating complex content (such as announcements for new banking products) has never been easier. In addition to all of this, the cutting edge tagging system allows FHB the classify content, thus making it possible for the system to automatically choose the type content visible to each individual user, based on their permissions and capabilities (in case of agents).


    In order to make it faster and more efficient, documents in the repository only need to be stored once; the individual sites only contain links to these instead of having to store their own copy of each document. Despite containing a massive amount of 50 000 content items, used by almost 1700 internal users each day, only two persons are enough administer the system.


    By choosing Sensenet ECM as their solution, FHB ensured never to fall in the CMS trap as the platform already contains all ECM capabilities they could ever need, waiting to be unlocked and discovered.
