Jena, Metzingen, February 9, 2017 – When it comes to e-commerce, Lechler GmbH will continue to rely on the solutions and expertise offered by Intershop Communications AG. The company signed a license agreement to this end in Metzingen, in Baden-Württemberg. Lechler is a family-run company that develops and produces atomizer nozzles for a wide range of applications and is among the world’s leading businesses in this sector.
Its first online shop was launched using Intershop in 2000, making Lechler GmbH a pioneer among the more than 300 Intershop clients around the world. In order to upgrade its technology and thus expand its leading position in digital B2B retail, the international company decided to switch to the current version of Intershop Commerce Suite after an intensive test phase. With this move, Lechler GmbH is investing in a market-leading, highly efficient shop solution that makes online shopping even easier and more interesting for business clients.
Tilo Nestle, project manager for e-business at Lechler GmbH, emphasizes that “the decision to stay with Intershop was made with good reason. Intershop has allowed us to turn our growth initiatives into success in the past. The new platform will also help us adapt to shifting shopping habits in the B2B segment and offer our clients an attractive, convenient shopping experience across all touchpoints.”
Axel Köhler, chief executive officer at Intershop Communications AG, adds, “we are proud of the fact that a company as renowned as Lechler is continuing to place its trust in the expertise and technology that Intershop provides. Our years of cooperation prove that we understand the challenges faced by ambitious medium-sized companies and that we offer perfect solutions for successful commerce strategies.”
