Jena, September 4, 2018 - The SPINNER Group rises to the challenges of digitization in medium-sized businesses and, as part of its sales strategy, is now opening an online shop. It follows the new online catalog and starts with the German market.
For the SPINNER Group, the focus is on individual and optimal customer service: In addition to the technical specialists from sales and product management and the personal account manager, customers are provided with a digital information and sales channel.
This enables customers to access the SPINNER Group's portfolio at any time and from anywhere and to obtain comprehensive information about the product attributes. Registered customers can view prices and delivery times transparently and order directly. Thanks to the flexible logistics of the SPINNER Group, the customer receives his delivery even faster and more efficiently, also individually according to the desired delivery date and place.
"We want to offer our customers the service, the user-friendliness and the positive shopping experience that they are already familiar with from private use of online shops, smartphones and other services and that they expect in the business-related ordering process - without abandoning the requirements of the B2B world," says Ms. König, Managing Director of SPINNER GmbH, summarizing one of the goals of the project. Even after more than 70 years of company history, the SPINNER Group is thus yet strengthening its competitive and innovative powers.
The basis for this is a transaction-based Intershop solution. It was chosen because of its extensive out-of-the-box functionality to ensure a rapid market launch for the additional sales channel. Scalability and flexibility of the solution were also crucial for the decision.
In the course of the project implementation, further digitization steps were taken at the same time. Matthias Riedinger, Project Manager Digitization at SPINNER comments: "The e-commerce project was a crystallization point and an important component in the digitization of partially still analog processes. It is the linking of central systems and databases as well as the automation of processes. Now the organization can act faster and leaner." In view of this, further stages of expansion are only realistic.
Markus Klahn, COO at Intershop, is pleased about the customer's success: "SPINNER is a good example of how SMEs can derive tangible benefits from digitization initiatives, much more than just from a sales perspective. We are proud to be able to support them beyond our technology." SPINNER will pass on its experience at the inpulse customer and partner event in September. Intershop's implementation partner diva-e, who was responsible for the SPINNER project, will also be able to explain the challenges and potential of digitization initiatives to interested visitors in Berlin using this and other examples.
