Jena (DE) / Schiedam (NL), Germany, October 23, 2023 – Huisman Equipment B.V. sets a milestone in the maritime and heavy lifting industry sector with the introduction of myHuisman, based on the Intershop Commerce Platform. The company is the world’s leader for the design, manufacture and service of heavy construction equipment aimed at the oil, renewable energy, and naval industries.
For Huisman to be able to further professionalize its services worldwide, it required a digital platform that would allow all the different services to be integrated into a single, unified environment. With the Intershop Commerce Platform, a progressive web application was created that can be used by ships and vessels when they are online. The platform also has multiple degrees of customization and hierarchies and provides a technical library, part shop, and service/customer support channel.
Martijn Reissenweber, Director of Huisman Global Services explains their choice: "We opted for Intershop because this e-commerce platform is the ideal fit for our needs. It seamlessly combines the functionality of a B2B shop with the user-friendly aesthetics of a B2C platform. Furthermore, Intershop aligns perfectly with our envisioned architectural framework. This versatile platform package has global applicability, making it a perfect match for our market presence."
Huisman's products range from cranes, pipelay equipment, drilling equipment, and winches, to vessel designs and special tailormade equipment. The company designed and built the largest cranes in the world – two 10,000 mt tub mounted cranes for Heerema's Sleipnir, a semi-submersible crane vessel. Yet, until 2019, Huisman did not have any form of an online platform for its customers.
"With the new service platform, Huisman has created a pioneering solution for its customers. We are proud to accompany them on the path to digitalization together with our partner Fenego," says Markus Klahn, CEO at Intershop.
