For more than 80 years, the adidas Group has been part of the world of sports, delivering state-of-the-art sports footwear, apparel and accessories. Today, it is a global leader with a broad portfolio of brands and products available in virtually every country of the world.
With global expansion a major initiative, the adidas Group required an ecommerce platform that would allow it to get to market fast and efficiently, while retaining complete control over the brands and customer experience. The company selected Demandware’s cloud-based model because it provides a flexible, scalable platform that enables launching many sites quickly from a common architecture with minimal technical intervention.
“Fast deployment was a major consideration for us as our ecommerce presence is of strategic importance for the adidas Group. We needed an ecommerce platform and partner that could help us move swiftly to reach new markets, without compromising quality. In close cooperation with Demandware, we were able to execute a rollout of this size within just one year. Demandware has delivered consistently and we look forward to a long and successful partnership with them,” said Harm Ohlmeyer, Chief eCommerce Officer for the adidas Group.
“As the adidas Group continues to drive digital ecommerce on a global scale, Demandware will be there to help ensure that its strategic business objectives are met. We’re honored to have them as a client and are committed to their success,” said Tom Ebling, CEO of Demandware.
The project was implemented by Astound Commerce, a certified Demandware Solutions partner.
