Online pure player Zamro chooses Intershop as B2B e-commerce platform to disrupt European technical supplies market

  • Dutch e-commerce start up Zamro, part of ERIKS Group, implemented Intershop Commerce Suite as B2B omni-channel commerce platform
  • Intershop solutions enabled a record time development of 5 months supporting the rapid growth strategy

Jena, Germany, December 13, 2016 – Intershop Communications AG, the leading independent supplier of innovative omni-channel commerce solutions, has brought online another ambitious B2B client from The Netherlands. Zamro, part of the ERIKS Group, has selected Intershop to implement their B2B e-commerce platform, based on Intershop Commerce Suite including the Intershop Order Management.

Zamro is an ambitious and dynamic e-commerce company that was founded in February 2016 and has great ambitions for cross border growth and focuses on the rapidly changing behaviour of the technical B2B buyer. With its broad assortment of over 500,000 industrial components the start-up’s online offer is focusing on a one-stop shop proposition primarily directed at smaller and medium-sized business clients. Zamro aims to deliver “ease of order” to the industry, which is not yet that widely spread. Key focus is a perfect understanding of the customer in order to offer an excellent customer experience, comprehensive product information and the quick, reliable delivery of their orders. Unlike often still the case in the business client sector; catalogs, products, and prices in the shop are kept completely transparent. Visitors can access without prior registration regardless of the client.

Axel Köhler, member of the board at Intershop: “We are delighted that Zamro selected Intershop after intensive competitive analysis. This success mirrors Intershop’s B2B focus and confirms once again that our B2B omni-channel commerce solution is very appealing for ambitious medium-sized companies geared toward cross border growth.”

Floris Jan Cuypers, Founder and Managing Director at Zamro added: “As an innovative, rapidly growing company, we have in Intershop the support of an experienced partner for our ambitious B2B e-commerce strategy. The platform meets our demands for an innovative yet economical solution that is flexible and scalable enough to push our plans for growth ahead. We also appreciate the unbeatably short project duration that secures our swift market launch.”

Zamro designed a state-of-the-art commerce architecture, which is hosted by Carrenza. In this architecture the Intershop order management system has been integrated to on-board new suppliers and (international) warehouses quickly. The B2B platform, which offers a B2C experience, is instrumental to realize the international growth ambitions and initially went live in the Netherlands and Belgium.
