Jena, Germany, September 15, 2011 – Intershop and its partners are giving store managers and marketing decision-makers the benefit of their experience via a series of presentations and guided tours at this year’s dmexco conference. The e-commerce provider is attending the Cologne event together with its subsidiaries SoQuero and TheBakery, plus partners FACT-Finder and Smart Information Systems (Hall 8.1, Booth D-009).
“10 Practical Tips to Boost Success in Price Search Engines and Product Portals” is the title of a presentation to be delivered by Björn Emeritzy, Head of Product Data Marketing at SoQuero (September 21 from 1.00 to 1.45 p.m., Hall 7, Room 1). The guided tour on conversion rates organized by the German Digital Industry Association (BVDW) will then be visiting the Intershop booth, where Alexander Neuhausen, Senior Presales Engineer at Intershop, will provide insights on securing a competitive edge (September 21 from 2.00 to 3.00 p.m., Hall 8.1, Booth D-009). The presentations will be rounded out by Hartmut Stumpf, Key Account Manager at Intershop, who will reveal how healthcare companies can achieve international growth through online sales (guided tour on September 22 from 1.30 to 2.30 p.m., Hall 8.1, Booth D-009).
“Because it covers the entire digital value chain, dmexco provides valuable pointers for store managers. For example, they can learn from Intershop and our partners how improved online search functionality in their online shop and the use of interactive product advisors can add value in the online-selling environment,” says Volker John, Intershop’s Area Sales Director for the German-speaking countries. “Our integrated approach actually goes one step further because all digital channels also need to be linked to the point of sale or catalog sale. Today’s customers expect a unique shopping experience at every touch point."
