London, UK, 1st December 2014 – One of Europe´s largest power companies, Vattenfall has launched a new online store based on the new Intershop 7 Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform. The Swedish shop at http://energibutik.vattenfall.se, which sells a range of products to help Vattenfall's customers use energy more efficiently, went live already, after a short implementation period. The quick onboarding was realized together with Intershop´s implementation partner Brightstep who have a close relationship with Vattenfall and extensive knowledge of the Scandinavian e-commerce market.
As part of its commitment to sustainability, Vattenfall also sells energy-saving products to its customers - from light bulbs and water-saving valves to solar powered radios and smart energy meters. To better equip its online shop for growing demand, Vattenfall selected Intershop's full service offering, which includes technical services, hosting of the online shop, and business operations support based on Intershop's SaaS e-commerce platform. Payments, logistics and shipping services are closely integrated into the Intershop platform and provided by local partners.
Key features of the new online shop include a responsive storefront for a better user experience on mobile devices, an advanced promotion engine for targeted sales promotions, and powerful search options. In addition, Vattenfall uses Intershop's content management solution as a powerful tool for creating, managing, editing, and publishing content across all touchpoints.
The Intershop SaaS solution not only scales easily to Vattenfall's requirements, but also offers Vattenfall faster go-to-market and better control over its e-commerce costs.
Vattenfall is now planning the roll-out of its Finnish online shop, scheduled to go live in early 2015.
