arvato eCommerce chooses Heiler Software for its global requirements
"We chose Heiler's PIM because it perfectly supported our strategy of a fully-integrated architecture", said Alexander Katzner, CEO of arvato eCommerce. "Our unique, full-service solution links together all the elements of the e-commerce supply chain. We are the only provider that can truly supply clients with a onestop range of ecommerce services."
"Strategically, this is an extremely important collaboration for us", said Rolf J. Heiler, Founder and President of Heiler Software. "arvato eCommerce is coming to the market with an entirely new, globally available proposition that matches our quality requirements perfectly. At the end of the day, successful ecommerce needs good product data."
Heiler's Software takes care of the transfer, structuring, and output of product information. Clients are able to import product data for themselves, using standard formats and interfaces, and can prepare them for online stores. The system is already equipped with modern, user-friendly maintenance interfaces for this purpose. These are tailored to the needs of arvato eCommerce's clients, allowing them to see a real-time preview in the online store's design layout. This greatly reduces the amount of time taken up by quality control.
Both partners have been working together for several months on this joint project. The solution will be premiered to clients at arvato eCommerce's Strategy Summit at the beginning of October.
