Realization

Together with IconParc, PUMA has introduced a new cross-country and cross-regional purchasing platform for its dealers that meets all the needs of B2B purchasing. Today, the internal sales force is relieved of manual repetitive tasks. In this way, employees have more time for high-quality service and individual discussions with customers.

Our services

Strategy and digital consulting

Together with the PUMA project management we developed an implementation concept including a design study on the basis of PUMA-internal preliminary considerations and wishes.

Design study

We presented various design drafts to the decision makers. These were first created in Photoshop and later implemented as HTML/CSS/JS prototypes, which were accessible on the extranet.

Software & Customization

We have been continuously developing the IconParc B2B E-Commerce Suite for 21 years. Always up to date with the latest technologies. This is the basis for the realization of all our solutions.

Integration

The implementation with all interfaces took place within one year. After a two-month test phase in the STAGING environment, the B2B platform went live in 2010.

 

Since then, enhancements and optimizations have been incorporated on a permanent basis. Step by step, numerous countries and regions were connected, partly with different ERP systems. The international B2B solution for PUMA now covers 40 countries. To be continued...

Maintenance & Updates

Every month, more than 500 software changes are migrated to the LIVE system.
