Jena, Germany, November 11, 2009 – The new webstore set up by Gerhard Rösch GmbH has been welcoming online shoppers to its world of fashion since October 19, 2009. Implemented by Intershop, the online boutique represents a new sales channel for the Tübingen-based business. With this new venture, Rösch is primarily targeting its high-quality product lines at a young, sophisticated demographic.
Additional services, such as product information and advice on the correct fit, including size tables, make the online shopping experience as convenient as possible. At the same time, customers are offered other products that match the selected items, making it easy to put together a complete outfit. "Our in-store experience shows that our customers like to buy complete sets, for example a bikini with matching pareo and beach frock," comments Evita Rösch, Head of Corporate Communication.
Gerhard Rösch GmbH chose Intershop Communications AG as implementation partner. Andrea Hassener, Head of E-Commerce at Rösch explains: "We leverage Intershop’s e-commerce expertise in order to avoid expensive experiments and frustrated customers. As a mid-sized company, we also attach great importance to future-proof investment." Rösch GmbH is using the standard product for full-service e-commerce. Within a few weeks, one-stop provider Intershop had adapted the system to meet client requirements, coordinated the processes from marketing through payment to customer service, and integrated a logistics function. This enabled the Tübingen-based company to get started with online commerce quickly, with low up-front investment and no hidden costs.
Fashionable nightwear, homewear, daywear, loungewear, swimwear, and beachwear products from RÖSCH CreativeCulture, Blanche Fleur, Féraud, and Daniel Hechter are now available at www.die-reine-wohlfuehlkunst.de. Matching accessories round out the range. All new customers will receive a 10% discount on their first purchase up to December 27, 2009.
