Jena, Germany, 3 June 2015 – Global confectionery, food and beverage giant Mondelēz International Inc. has gone online on Intershop’s SaaS solution as the new e-commerce engine for its coffee brand Tassimo, makers of a smart technology-based hot beverage system. The Intershop SaaS offering, chosen for its scalability and flexibility, enables Tassimo to provide a seamless experience for all consumers, regardless of location.
As part of reorganizing its global e-commerce landscape, Mondelēz initially relaunched the Tassimo sites of France, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Germany, Austria, Ireland, Switzerland, Greece, and Spain on the new Intershop platform, with additional regions being rolled out in the coming weeks. Intershop set up the platform for Tassimo’s European country shops in a dedicated private cloud environment in only 4 months. Together with its partner ModusLink, the companies provide a full service, end-to-end e-commerce solution for Tassimo, making it easy for the company to add new products and geographies as it realizes its expansion plans. The partners work together seamlessly to provide the integrated solution, combining Intershop’s professional services, hosting, application management and content management with ModusLink’s fulfillment, order management, financial management and logistics expertise.
“Intershop has been a perfect partner for ModusLink, helping us to provide customers with the complete, end-to-end e-Commerce solution that today’s brands demand,” said Bram Barendregt, Vice President & General Manager, eBusiness, for ModusLink. “Companies have come to realize that they need a flexible solution that can be expanded quickly, easily and cost-effectively to new locations as the market dictates – and Intershop’s SaaS-based solution makes that possible.”
“With Tassimo another major global brand has chosen Intershop’s highly scalable and flexible SaaS offering.
