Intershop and dotSource agree on technology partnership
Jena, January 27, 2010 – The e-commerce software specialist Intershop and the social commerce agency dotSource combine their core competence in a technology partnership: dotSource’s standard solution SCOOBOX® enhances Intershop’s Enfinity Suite by social commerce functionalities. Intershop is in charge of the support.
dotSource has been a certified Intershop implementation partner for several years and is fully conversant with the Intershop software. A further advantage for the new technology partnership is the close proximity, since both companies are located in the Intershop Tower. Joint customers can benefit from the vast e-commerce knowledge that the two possess.
dotSource developed SCOOBOX® (short for Social Commerce Out Of The Box) especially for Intershop Enfinity Suite 6. The SCOOBOX® solution version 1.0 is based on and completely integrated in the Intershop basis technology. It is fitted seamlessly and precisely into the Intershop platform, according to the customer’s requirements.
SCOOBOX® 1.0 provides a whole range of opportunities for Web shop visitors. Existing standard features of Intershop Enfinity, e.g. product ratings and comments, are enhanced comprehensively by SCOOBOX® and are complemented by new components. New Web 2.0 functionalities offer, among other things, configurable and visual shopping, a communication system, enhanced customer management and user profiles, toplists, a drag and drop shopping cart and much more.
Additionally, a complete forum can be integrated. The combination of several social commerce components helps shop operators to set up an active online community and to increase target group loyalty towards the company. Shoppers are actively involved in the shop’s value added process.
The SCOOBOX® software kit is available for those Intershop customers that use Enfinity Suite 6.2 or higher or to those that will implement it in the future.
