Jena, September 28, 2007 –Intershop Communications AG announced today that Stadium, a Swedish retailer of sports goods and clothing, started a new e-commerce portal on September 20, 2007. Stadium is a well-known brand and owns more than one hundred retail shops in Sweden and other Scandinavian countries.
The sophisticated Stadium internet portal runs on Enfinity Suite 6, the standard e-commerce software of the German provider Intershop Communications AG. Stadium opted for this solution thanks to its outstanding performance, flexibility and extendibility.
Stadium expects about 500,000 visitors per month. Advanced storefront features and community functionality – like free training videos, whish lists, blogs, and the store-in-store concept – shall help to even double the traffic within the first three years.
The Swedish Intershop partner Wipcore AB (formerly ClearCloud) has implemented the portal and has integrated the solution with several backend systems. For example, Stadium customers can now combine online and offline sales channels through ordering online and picking up the products in a nearby point-of-sales.
Stadium intends to set up international online shops next year, which is expected to be comparatively easy thanks to Enfinity Suite 6’s strong multi-site and localization capabilities.
