Jena, Germany, April 12, 2011 –– Intershop’s full-service customers achieve real benefits for their online sales, as shown by the doubling of their Internet revenues on average during the 2010 holiday season compared with the same prior-year period. Total revenues rose quarter-on-quarter by 124 percent. These figures confirm that a business, such as a fashion retailer, can transform itself into a successful online seller without needing to acquire IT expertise along the way. "We are excited about the outstanding results in revenues during last year and the ongoing personal contact with the Intershop team." states Andrea Hassel, Head of E-Commerce at Roesch. "Without a reliable partner achieving such good revenues could only have been reached half as easily. Therefore, we are looking forward to more of this positive cooperation with Intershop."
Thanks to Intershop’s full-service offering, manufacturers can continue to focus on their strengths, i.e., product range, manufacturing skills, and market and customer insights. The e-commerce experts take care of the rest, establishing a tailored system, operating and maintaining it in their own data center, and providing the necessary hardware and software. Intershop also handles content maintenance and online marketing activities, while logistics processes and all business services are managed by specialist partners. Thanks to this support, Intershop customers including Mexx, Roadsign, and Rösch were able to cope with significant increases in online traffic and orders during the holiday period, thereby considerably boosting their revenues.
