Jena, Sandy, November 06, 2018 – Intershop Communications AG, the leading independent provider of innovative omnichannel commerce solutions, supports the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) with a web shop running on Microsoft Azure.
This cloud-based e-commerce solution has been designed to offer a fully integrated digital shopping experience to sell RSPB products online. The original shopping website had been in operation since 2012 – since then website technology and customer expectations had moved on. The old site was struggling to handle peaks in customer visits and no longer supported new features.
The new webshop is more advanced and the cloud operation system ensures that peak shopping times will be supported and performance is not hindered. The design has also been brought in line with the main RSPB site to create a seamless customer journey for those members and customers moving between the two sites.
Search functionality and navigation has been improved to make it easier for customers to find what they’re looking for. The new site is also mobile-responsive, recognising the browsing device (desktop, tablet or mobile) to ensure a positive user experience regardless of which platform they use.
Markus Klahn, COO of Intershop: ”The flexibility of Intershop´s solution portfolio, being in the market for more than two and a half decades, has resulted in a tremendously varied range of case studies. This project here, however, is certainly outstanding in its mission and offering. We are proud to support the RSPB with our technology, and are confident to see it meeting the high expectations set. The results will be of benefit beyond conventional commercial standards. ”
Liz Brown, Ecommerce and Marketing Manager of RSPB adds: “We are extremely excited about this collaboration with Intershop and the launch of our new site. We hope that this smoother customer journey encourages people to stay longer on our site, learning more about our projects and supporting the vital work that we do. We are pleased with the results we are seeing already.”
The RSPB is the UK’s largest nature conservation charity, inspiring everyone to give nature a home. Together with our partners, we protect threatened birds and wildlife so our towns, coast and countryside will teem with life once again. We play a leading role in BirdLife International, a worldwide partnership of nature conservation organisations.
Why shop with the RSPB?
Because we spend 90% of net income on conservation, public education and advocacy in the UK and around the world. www.rspbshop.co.uk
