Hanover, Germany, March 5, 2012 – Intershop is presenting its new cross-channel commerce platform, Intershop 7, at CeBIT. The product was selected for inclusion in the CeBIT Highlight Tour held on March 4, a pre-show press preview featuring some of this year’s most exciting products.
The new Intershop software provides store managers with unprecedented flexibility and options. More than 1,500 new features give them full control over their online business and the power to respond to the ever-changing needs of customers. It is now possible to create and develop an online storefront quickly and easily, without any programming skills. Integrated A/B testing enables accurate analysis of customer preferences in terms of page layout, promotions, and other content elements. The powerful campaign management system provides a wide range of options for communicating with customers and creating promotions.
Participants in the early adopter program have been extremely positive about the new Intershop product. A number of debut projects from the Intershop Partner Community will be presented by the company as part of its International Partner Day at CeBIT. There will also be an event at the show catering specifically for Intershop customers. As well as highlighting emerging trends in online commerce, the event will showcase the new possibilities in Intershop 7 for sophisticated multi-channel commerce. Visitors to the Intershop booth (Hall 6/Booth J14) can discover the functionality of the new e-commerce platform with the aid of in-depth demonstrations and on-the-hour presentations each day. In addition, Intershop will be explaining the innovative concept underlying Intershop 7, as well as the latest shopping trends, in a range of other CeBIT events.
Intershop Management Board member Henry Göttler: “Mobile commerce, social commerce, e-commerce—they’re all fundamentally about the same thing. There’s a definite trend toward genuine cross-channel selling, where consumers can learn about and purchase products via multiple touch points. Successful store managers provide their customers with exactly the right product at exactly the right price, whatever the channel, whatever the time, and with optimum customer interaction. That is what Intershop 7 can do.”
