PORTICA shop: Professional e-commerce support


Kempen. Online sales turnovers are rising all the time, according to the experts at the Cologne E-Commerce Center, both in the business-to-customer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) sectors. It’s not enough, however, to set up an online shop or an ordering portal and leave it at that: the demand now is for cross-channel strategies, an attractive shopping experience and more. PORTICA is the ideal partner to make all this happen. This full service provider for IT, logistics and financial and customer service processes provides PORTICA shop, an e-commerce solution providing businesses with professional support from the very first step.

PORTICA shop, based on the OXID eSales Enterprise Edition software, makes it possible to display and order promotional items and goods of all kinds. This platform offers cutting-edge B2B and B2C functionality and can be combined into a hybrid solution if required. This allows PORTICA shop to meet demands for multiple languages, mobile commerce and more. The design is implemented flexibly and in line with corporate design specifications. Access options can be freely configured for different user groups, taking into account factors such as budgets, pricing and order limits.

Interfaces with other PORTICA solutions help businesses master a range of other challenges. The interface with PORTICA erp lets projects start up quickly. The relevant data is directly processed through the supply chain, allowing businesses to meet precise delivery deadlines and therefore match one of the most important current trends in e-commerce, as determined in a recent report by eco, the German online industry association. The web2print add-on PORTICA w2p lets users intuitively customise templates on their screen, making direct contact, personalised marketing and individually-tailored offers easy. The PORTICA isa interface makes it easy to manage items and users.

The solution can also interface with external systems – with enterprise resource planning systems or with content management, customer relationship management, product information management or accounting systems – or with credit-checking solutions or a range of payment providers.

An experienced team trained in the Prince2TM project management method customises the PORTICA shop to meet the customer’s exact needs. They also ensure that all solutions always remain up to date and incorporate experience from previous projects as features in new releases. Customers receive the PORTICA shop as a cloud solution: all updates, maintenance and modifications are handled by PORTICA, with the software always updated to the latest version.
