This is the way we do it!


To find a custom-fit solution for you, a comprehensive consultation is necessary. Here we will work together to address your needs for a community solution.

Which features do you need? Which existing systems must be integrated? Who are the key users? What must be taken into account when designing the architecture? Which infrastructure is recommended? How will the permissions management look?

We will stand by your side to answer such questions and determine the best case for you.


The needs have been identified and the requirements clarified, now comes the implementation.

Using our many years of technical expertise we will efficiently and methodically turn your wishes into reality. We take responsibility for everything from programming to project management to coordination of external services.

In a time period of one to twelve weeks the roll out will be complete and your community ready to use.


Once your system is up and running, we will show you how to make the most of it.

Whether you are a community moderator or an administrator, we can work together on "best practice" examples to make the use of your system as simple as possible.

4 years Drupal Commons

Success starting from the first hour.

    Stars Insight

    Stars Insight

    Stars Insight, the marketing research community of Mercedes Benz, has been online since early summer 2010. In December 2010, the community decided to program Drupal Commons 1.x and thus decided to integrate crowd-creation.
    In March 2011 the newly developed platform went online. It was continuously expanded and maintained and in June 2012 a mobile version was added.
    After two and a half successful years, the decision was made to upgrade Stars Insight to the new version 3.x of Drupal Commons in order to benefit from current developments and participate in new possibilities. In March 2014 the switch was completed and Stars Insight was online with a new look and new functions.

    In 2011, the community was chosen as a "Best Study" by the German Federal Association for Market and Social Research.

    Stars Insight helps address current and future needs and desires of target groups with regard to many issues relevant to products and marketing.

    "The community 'Stars Insight' is an innovative marketing research tool which mediates a deep understanding of customers. It is as fast, flexible, and versatile like almost no other marketing research tool."  (Projectmanager of TNS Infratest)

    The community was developed on behalf of TNS Infratest.
    Goal of the community: Accompaniment of the introduction of the new 2012 A-Class to market. Since 2012 a multitude of other focuses, including electromobility.

    The food experts

    A community with seven languages and seven countries!

    With the founding of "The Food Experts" in the summer of 2013, the first market research community based on Drupal Commons 3.x went online.

    Sie verstehen nur "chinesisch"? Dann liegt es wohl daran dass die Community für China, Thailand, Indonesien, Brasilien, USA, Türkei und Deutschland programmiert worden ist.
    Das umgesetzte Ziel war es eine Community-Plattform zu erhalten, in der jedes Land für sich unabhängig agieren und moderieren kann, die Verwaltung des Systems aber zentral erfolgt.

    Do you only understand Chinese? Then it's probably because the community was programmed for China, Thailand, Indonesia, Brazil, the USA, Turkey, and Germany. The new goal was to maintain a community platform in which every country can independently operate and moderate content but where the management systems are implemented centrally. Along with the many technical challenges, the user interface of the community had to be available in all of the languages and translations were introduced accordingly. This is no small task for someone who cannot read most of the languages and for whom even the characters are unknown.

    The community was developed on behalf of TNS Infratest.
    Goal of the community: To test and develop new ideas in the field of system catering.

    Electric Community

    Electric community - the market research community from Smart and Mercedes-Benz

    In the spring of 2012 the "Stars Insight" community was expanded to form a special community with the theme of "electromobility".
    As an independent community with all the features from Stars Insight, drivers of electric cars can exchange ideas related to electric power systems.

    The "Electric Community" helps address current and future needs and desires of target groups with regard to many issues relevant to products and marketing.

    The community was developed on behalf of TNS Infratest.
    Goal of the community: To discuss all themes relating to electromobility.
