Jena, Germany, August 21, 2013 – Partnerships work best at eye level. However, many existing partners of the formally independent e-commerce provider find themselves constricted by the administrative requirements of a global trust.
Intershop CEO Jochen Moll understands the growing discontent among the hybris partners. „We are sensing the effect of the loss of flexibility and creative freedom amongst many of this community. Caused by the unavoidable integration of these partners into the static global partner framework of SAP, they find themselves as one of thousands of already established partners. For them it results not only in loss of their visibility in the market, but also in their access to the software vendor.”
Business partners need a swift and comprehensive support, especially the certainty that functionalities that were promised during the sales process will be delivered in time and will be covered in the product roadmap of the software vendor.
In the market it is expected, that instead of leveraging from developed expertise, e-commerce providers will be obliged to adapt their portfolio to the databank and its sales concept which is currently being developed and roll-out by SAP. Consequently, partners do not only face higher complexity, but also higher economical risk as this solution has not delivered on the projected business results.
Intershop has experience of two decades in the highly dynamic online business. It has shown that the focused experts are those who deliver the individual solutions meeting the fast changing business requirements for their customers most flexibly.
Therefore, Intershop is now offering established e-commerce service providers of hybris especially attractive conditions to enter its powerful and specialized partner network.
Intershop CEO Jochen Moll explains: „As the only independent e-commerce vendor in the enterprise segment Intershop remains focused on the growing e-commerce market, thus offering partners a reliable business perspective. Intershop is very aware of how important a functioning business partner relationship is for being successful in the e-commerce market. Therefore, we are very committed to our partners. With our tailored offering we invite e-commerce providers to a sustainable business success, based on expertise, flexibility, and power of innovation.”
