Kjell & Company embarks on new digital journey with Avensia - builds new e-commerce
Swedish home electronics retailer Kjell & Company has entrusted Avensia with the mission to develop their e-commerce and website, again. Kjell & Company and Avensia are already partners, and with this new project, Kjell & Company will gear up to top notch e-commerce technology. With Episerver's platform and Avensia's framework SCOPE, Kjell & Company will be able to offer their customers enhanced experiences in an omni-channel commerce, with more efficiency and better profitability.
Kjell & Company has over 100 stores in 52 places in Sweden, 15 stores in Norway and around 1000 employees. The headquarters and logistics center are located in Malmö, Sweden. The goal of the e-commerce project is to create the same type of experience that customers get in the physical stores, where knowledge and good advice are central.
Kjell & Company has developed their site together with e-commerce specialist Avensia as partner since 2011. The new e-commerce will enable a more seamless connection between the website and the physical stores, and at the same time increase the pace of digital services, with a scalable platform.
– With Avensia as e-commerce partner and Episerver as the engine for our web and e-commerce, we have a strong basis for continued growth and to reach our long-term business goals. The close connection between Avensia's framework SCOPE, Episerver CMS & Commerce, inRiver PIM and Apptus eSales, a winning combination used by most leading retailers in Sweden, will really boost the customer experience, says Martin Knutson, CTO Kjell & Company.
NA-KD, Kicks, LYKO, Polarn O. Pyret and Stenströms all use the combination Episerver and Avensia's framework SCOPE for their e-commerce. SCOPE gives retailers established e-commerce components, speed and stability, not least when shopping from the phone.
- To get renewed trust from a company like Kjell & Company, with so much competence in both technology and business, is a real triumph for Avensia. It is also a sign that the combination of the work we do, Avensia SCOPE and our platform partners really is fruitful. Together with our partners we have created a recipe for success that is almost becoming the given alternative on the Nordic e-commerce market for retailers, says Niklas Johnsson, CEO Avensia.
