Imagine 2019 is alive and kicking at the moment and last night the 14th of May was the big night. The award show on which two of our success stories (PostNL and Unipart) were nominated for an award in different categories. And Unipart took home the price!
Unipart was nominated in the category Best Hybrid B2B/B2C Implementation. The global distributor of cars, vans and trailer parts that specializes in the production, logistics, and consultancy needed integration of product and customer data from the ERP with an entire garage management system. Youwe also integrated a Mobile App for B2C and fleet management and a car finder by license plate and store locator for B2C clients. Thanks to the integration customers are now able to log in and book appointments with ease and they will receive a confirmation e-mail afterwards. The outcome after the implementation was fantastic. Customer sales have increased, customer retentions have improved, the customer database is enhanced, and the administrative costs have reduced. Because of this, there is 40% more traffic, the orders have increased by 75% and Unipart deals with 50% fewer phone calls and faxes.
The award is not the only Imagine awards Youwe won. Last year, we and our valued partner Vink, an internationally successful plastics company, won the Imagine Excellence Award for best B2B Implementation at Magento’s Imagine conference in Las Vegas 2018. As you can imagine we are extremely proud of the awards we win and the validation of our projects. Youwe’s CEO Rob Wiek was in Las Vegas to receive the award. “I am really proud that we have received this amazing award at Imagine Las Vegas together with James Billington from Unipart Group for the best Hybrid (B2C/B2B) E-commerce implementation worldwide by Magento, an Adobe Company.” Also, Erwin Idelenburg CCO at Youwe is really proud. He lets us know from Las Vegas: “I am so proud of our commitment and hard work! And that we are the Imagine Award winner together with our customer Unipart.”
As you can imagine this is only a stepping stone. Youwe now has two Magento Imagine awards, but we are planning to win a lot more in the future. And we will be working hard for our customers to deliver the best work and e-commerce solutions.
