Gütersloh, Germany – Arvato SCM Solutions continues to grow its range of front-end development services. It is partnering with commerce technology supplier, Spryker. “By combining the individuality and flexibility of the Spryker platform with our expertise and wide range of international e-commerce services, we can offer our clients solutions which allow them to successfully establish themselves in the highly competitive e-commerce market,” says Jan Hildburg, Vice President Digital at Arvato.
Spryker is not a ready-made shop solution. It is an e-commerce platform concept consisting of independent modules, which can be combined as desired. Spryker’s modular concept makes it possible to establish custom e-commerce platforms which offer the same level of flexibility as bespoke, proprietary developments. “In today’s competitive market the ability to introduce new functionality, data-driven marketing and, most of all, speed are critical factors. Simply having a nice shop and well-configured back-end systems is no longer enough,” explains Boris Lokschin, CEO of Spryker. “This means agility is more important than sales volume. Spryker is a modern e-commerce platform which optimises development speed and the time-to-market for individual or complex digital business models. In this way, our clients can differentiate themselves more quickly by using technological innovations which are in line with what their customers want.”
This new partnership is off to a good start as the two companies are already implementing their first joint project.
“The modularity and expandability offered by Spryker is the perfect match for challenging B2B and B2C projects,” Jan Hildburg highlights. “By using this e-commerce platform, we can make data led decisions and boost our customers’ productivity – while also managing the branding.” Arvato also sees potential for the Spryker platform to be used in its international e-commerce operations in France, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and other countries. “Our e-commerce clients are increasingly focusing on attractive foreign markets,” Jan Hildburg adds. “Our task is to enable them to internationalise.”
