The new way to renovate: international relaunch of Praktiker with Kalteswasser
As of today we present to you, with modern functionality and a modular design, the international websites of Praktiker Bau- und Heimwerkermärkte AG
“The aim is presenting the brand Praktiker Europe-wide uniformly on the Internet”, said Jörg Stehle, director of Kalteswasser. “User get from the central page www.praktiker.com/... to the corresponding pages of the different countries, which all have a uniform appearance, and are set in the respective national and English language“.
Besides the universal Europe-wide design, the websites present a high customer’s benefit: the service center offers different furnishing modules, facilitating home’s planning, and arranging. Customers can experiment arranging the furniture, entering the dimensions of a room and dragging the furniture with the cursor into the required position on the outline. The color-your-room module offers experimental color testing for kitchens, bathrooms, or other rooms. The user can then easily imagine what the renovated home will look like and everything can be quickly and easily reconfigured.
The Praktiker Bau- und Heimwerkermärkte Holding AG operates around 420 do-it-yourself-markets in 8 countries and is listed at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The websites’ relaunch was controlled by Praktiker’s International Marketing Department, headquartered in Turkey.
