Jena, Germany, October 20, 2011 – Combining their online expertise in the eCommerce Alliance is the logical consequence of the members’ shared focus on store managers. The aim is to offer e-tailers the best solution for their business.
Thanks to the alliance’s deep market knowledge, store manager requirements can be quickly identified and appropriate solutions developed. Pooling of development capacities between the partners makes this possible. “By bringing together product development resources, the alliance is sharing knowledge in this area and taking it to a new level thanks to our collaborative efforts,” says Intershop Management Board member Henry Göttler. Store managers benefit from accelerated provision of successful business functionalities. This also applies to the options for operating the solution, which range from complete in-house operation of the e-commerce system through hosted operation to a comprehensive Software as a Service (SaaS) solution. Online retailers can also take advantage of a business process outsourcing program to outsource their entire operations. Intershop offers customers who operate e-commerce projects of varying size and complexity the unique option to combine on-premise offerings with SaaS solutions.
