Jena, Germany, March 28, 2019 – Alturos Destinations AG, market leader in digital tourism distribution solutions in Switzerland, has selected Intershop for its omnichannel e-commerce solution Peaksolution®.
The existing platform will be used for the digital marketing of services in Switzerland. Well-known companies such as BLS, Rhätische Bahn, Jungfraubahnen and Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn / Gornergrat Bahn offer their customers the opportunity to book their mountain railway tickets, as well as accommodation, ski courses, concert tickets, parking tickets, adventure packages and much more, conveniently from their homes in a one-stop shop. Tourist destinations also rely on Alturos destinations for digital marketing, such as the Jungfrau region in the Bernese Oberland or the Zillertal valley in Austria.
In workshops lasting several days and after a very detailed technical due diligence, those responsible at Alturos Destinations were able to see for themselves that Intershop, with its rich portfolio of B2B functionalities, offers better conditions for strategic growth than the Magento solution previously used. The replatforming project will largely be implemented by the e-commerce experts at Alturos Destinations themselves.
Dr. Jochen Wiechen, CEO of Intershop, comments: "International competition in tourism requires the highest level of digital communication and accountability. The volume of digital bookings is growing rapidly and requires scalable and robust e-commerce solutions. We are pleased that Intershop will support this growth at Alturos in the future".
Gilberto Loacker, Chairman of Alturos Destinations: "We know the preferences of tourists in Switzerland, Austria and the wider Alpine region very well. With our Skiline® solution, we already have more than 3.4 million users, who now cover more than 25 billion vertical meters per year. With our Destination Management product Peaksolution® we accompany our customers in the implementation of their digitization strategies in sales and marketing. The competitive situation in tourism as well as the demands of the modern guest require a complete and simple digital bookability of all tourist offers and infrastructures. Together with our partner Intershop, we will develop the next generation of scalable e-commerce solutions for tourism".
Dr. Christian Fillinger, CEO of Capptoo: "We are committed to ensuring that Alturos Destinations' customers get the best solution. To this end, we have brought together industry experts from the Swiss tourism industry with those from the e-commerce market. We are convinced that with Intershop, Alturos Destinations has made the best possible choice to help them and their customers grow in the future".
