Successful digitalization of procurement processes

The aim of Gustav Ehlert is to be able to meet all the needs of their customers and thus become the single source of supply for food producers. “We want to address our customers with a consistent brand experience - whether online, in our local store or in contact with the personal sales representative. We have obtained a detailed overview of various solution providers. It quickly became clear that Intershop could do everything we needed out-of-the-box”, says Philipp Ehlert, managing director and responsible for e-commerce.
