For our sister company SB-Commerce, now owned by Sanoma, we once developed a large number of interior webshops. The flagship was voor-thuis.nl with all kinds of variants such as bbq-for-home and coat rack-for-home. In addition, (also developed by us) webshops such as gadget house, order gift and the St. Nicholas web shop also ran nicely. The success of, among other things, the front-home had not escaped Sanoma's attention either. Soon after the deal was done, the vtwonen webshop got up.
The products of vtwonen.nl have already appeared frequently in the media. The Netherlands and Belgium are becoming increasingly familiar with vtwonen.nl. This creates great challenges! For example, keep the shop fast when more than 12 million pages are viewed on the day of the 'Spring House action'.
Until the end of 2017, this webshop was fully operational with us on a stable, fast and proven E-commerce platform, where all order, customer, product and promotional data could easily be managed in real time via an extensive online control panel.
For maximum convenience, the site is also easy to use on a mobile phone, so you can order your favorite stuff anytime, anywhere in the house. Fast and easy. The whole menu structure has recently changed, making it even easier to navigate through the site and find what you're looking for. And once you've found what you're looking for, you can also easily pay via the new checkout.
To ensure that the customer receives the order on time, we have set up a separate warehouse management module for order processing in the warehouse. We have also built in a module for vtwonen so that external suppliers can connect to the platform and process their own orders via a separate login. This has enabled us to develop a very diverse and all-round platform with which Sanoma has been working successfully for many years.
The proven E-commerce platform is continuously being developed. In close cooperation with the team of vtwonen, we are migrating the front-end of the webshop to an in-house environment, in line with the Sanoma company-wide strategy. In the coming years we will continue to work together to be able to provide the backend of the webshop and the links with external suppliers. We are proud of the many years of cooperation with this beautiful customer.
