using fast and stable open source platforms


Open Concept delivers user-friendly CMS platforms with high performance, stability and security. Our solutions rely on tried and tested open source software, and we combine the most suitable technologies in collaboration with the customer. We also assist with migration and adaptation of content from existing websites.

We deliver solutions ranging from simple sites for SMB to complex, highly structured enterprise-level sites. Every business is unique and we deploy a suitable combination of software for each delivery. Our core web publishing platform is Pimcore.

Using attractive, effective design and marketing techniques, we create websites that work. Our solutions satisfy legal requirements for accessibility and are  optimised for mobile devices.

We also provide consulting related to data privacy and data protection. This is a field that consistently grows more important, especially in light of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).


Many businesses gain an advantage by selecting bespoke ecommerce solutions as opposed to shelf or subscription-based products. Tailored solutions help build a strong brand and identity, harmonise better with internal workflows and provide more flexible and precise technical results.

Open Concept delivers complete ecommerce and PIM solutions through Shopware and Pimcore, of which the latter also provides advanced CMS/DXP functionality. We integrate and configure payment and freight providers, as well as optimise design and functionality for mobile, tablet and app usage.

Quality design and marketing are especially important for ecommerce sites, and as a full-service agency we ensure that the ecommerce project has a strong impact across marketing channels.

Web development

We tailor CMS and ecommerce systems to the customer's needs and wishes. We develop custom functionality, apps, web services and third-party integrations.


We have considerable experience in systems integration and can connect web solutions to payment providers, weather services, social media, asset management systems and other web services.


The most important element in a successful solution is content - which is always king, but also frequently the most time- and resource-consuming activity.

Open Concept provides consultancy for information architecture, copywriting and multimedia production. We also adapt workflows and division of responsibilities to ensure efficient processes for content creation that are adapted to the customer's organisation.

We have a large amount of experience in delivering multilingual solutions and master both the technological and editorial challenges of providing content in several languages.

We also carry out content audits of existing web solutions to achieve better content organisation, curation and quality.

Support and maintenance

Our solutions include web hosting on optimised servers. We carry out necessary upgrades in step with technological evolution and ensure that security patches are implemented in a timely manner.

We provide instruction and course materials for all user levels. We emphasise usability and our goal is that customers are able to handle all editorial and common system tasks internally.

We provide long-term support and availability agreements for larger and more complex deliveries that ensure predictability and availability. Service Level Agreements are provided for mission-critical systems.
