How does Liferay help me?

Build relationships with customers by making relevant information available at the right moment.

Liferay helps you efficiently craft consistent digital touchpoints across your enterprise. From websites, to mobile apps, kiosks and person-to-person interactions, you need a platform that ties them all together for your customers.

How is Liferay typically used?

Engage users throughout the entire customer journey

Liferay is typically used to build websites, portals and native mobile apps that engage customers wherever they are. Our clients also have other websites powered by third-party vendors. Liferay provides User Profiles, Content Management and Documents to all of these touchpoints.

Liferay also integrates information and applications from existing systems (such as SAP or SalesForce) and makes them available to Liferay and non-Liferay based sites.

Information from customer interactions at each channel are brought back to Liferay to provide a fuller understanding of the customer.


I'm not ready for a platform. What if I'm just getting started with a website?

A platform that can grow with your needs.

If you're not ready for a full-fledged digital platform strategy, Liferay lets you start small: build a single website, customer portal or intranet to start and expand your vision later.
