- arvato Systems accompanies NilsonGroup in the further development and implementation of an omni-channel commerce strategy.
- Migration to the new commerce platform has already been successfully completed.
The international IT systems integrator arvato Systems, whose area of expertise includes, among other things, the digitization of commerce processes, continues to support NilsonGroup in the implementation and further development of its eCommerce strategy. With headquarters in Varberg, Sweden, Scandinavia’s leading shoe retail chain incorporates the brands Din Sko, Nilson Shoes, Ecco, and Skopunkten. NilsonGroup is also advancing the expansion of its online business, in addition to the brick-and-mortar trade in around 300 stores. NilsonGroup plans to continue operating as an innovative pioneer, and constantly provide its customers with the products and services they are used to, through both existing and new sales channels.
arvato Systems was chosen as the new IT service provider for NilsonGroup as a result of its retail-specific and technical know-how. The first task was to plan and execute migration to the latest hybris commerce platform, which has already been successfully completed.
“This step forward is extremely important for our future and represents a strategic milestone for NilsonGroup on the road to innovative omni-channel commerce,” says Torsten Balslev, CIO of NilsonGroup AB. “It may be a minor step for arvato Systems, but it is a huge leap for NilsonGroup,” he adds.
Dr. Nasser Kaspari, Senior Sales Manager at arvato Systems, elaborates: “The NilsonGroup corporate philosophy ‘Put feet first’ is really put into practice there. The company makes its customers and their satisfaction with the shopping experience number one priority when planning or deciding upon any of its measures and it does not make any compromises in doing so. Working with NilsonGroup could not be any more enjoyable.”
The next stage of the project will see arvato Systems helping NilsonGroup to integrate new purchasing channels for customers and dovetailing the brick-and-mortar and online businesses. As a long-term hybris platinum partner, arvato Systems has accumulated a wealth of experience with the world’s fastest growing commerce platform through a range of successfully implemented eCommerce and cross-channel solutions based on hybris.
