Jena, Germany and Waltham, Mass., February 29, 2016 – Understanding that convenience and speed are the win-win scenario for omni-channel retailers striving for sustainable business growth, Intershop and ModusLink will be demonstrating new e-commerce enablers at Internet World in Munich, Germany. Due to the increasing complexities of today’s omni-channel commerce world, there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to growth and expansion. Consequently, ModusLink and Intershop have teamed up to provide solutions that adapt to and enable unique growth paths. These solutions will be demonstrated at Internet World (Booth D216 in Hall B6, March 1-2, 2016). These vendors will also share an inspiring real-life industry case study of how global coffee brand, Tassimo, was able to rapidly expand its global omni-channel presence and experience a marked uptick in customer satisfaction with their shopping experience – in a presentation entitled “The Taste of Roasted Beans – How a Coffee Company Created the Perfect Online Shopping Experience” (4pm on March 1 in Info Arena 1).
Customers like Tassimo underline how Intershop and ModusLink have hit a winning formula to enable brands to take a customer-centric approach to omni-channel retail, tackling the very real issues of facilitating efficient integration for increasingly complex e-commerce landscapes and simultaneously adapting to a rapidly changing customer journey – a landscape that is especially true for established players with growth ambitions.
