Barcelona, Jena, July 20, 2010 - Today Intershop announces its partnership with the Spanish marketing consultancy Lifting. While the Spaniards have so far focused on their major expertise in the field of marketing and online marketing services, they now extend their portfolio with a proven and scalable e-commerce-software. Thus, Lifting offers its clients reliable tools and know-how to succeed in the e-commerce market. Intershop supports Lifting with its expertise and software for complex e-commerce projects while Lifting provides access to the Spanish market for Intershop.
“Teaming with Intershop underlines our strategy of achieving the best solutions for our customers, and amplifies our possibilities with new customers, as well,” says David Garcia Gelabert, CEO of Lifting Consulting Company. “This partnership will open the e-commerce market in Spain and Portugal, bringing a leading provider like Intershop.”
“Intershop has established a successfully working international partner network. Our partners know their markets best and we provide them with the e-commerce-software that enables the success of our partners and their customers ” explains Peter Mark Droste, member of the board of Intershop. Further he states: “As the e-commerce-landscape on the Iberian Peninsula is not yet as mature as markets like the UK or Germany, with this partnership Intershop has the chance to accompany Spanish clients on their way into this prospering sector of economy. We are happy to welcome Lifting within our partner community.”
