Demandware, Inc. a leader in on-demand ecommerce announced that the adidas Group, a global leader in the sporting goods industry, is using the Demandware Commerce platform to power the global expansion of its brands. In just over one year, the company launched more than a dozen ecommerce sites on Demandware in Europe, Russia, Canada and South America. The company will leverage Demandware’s global commerce capabilities for additional sites and channels as it continues to execute upon its international expansion strategy.

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.

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.
