Vink and Youwe look back at a partnership beginning in 2016 when Vink decided to standardize their European E-Commerce operations on the Magento platform. Together with Youwe, Vink VTS became the first company within Vink Holdings to move directly to Magento Commerce 2. With their B2B operations easily accessible online, Vink VTS reduced a load of calls to their internal sales team, while improving online sales and stock inventory turnover.
“We are extremely thrilled that we won the award because it shows that we are on the right path and it is a great valuation of all the work we have done during the past years,” says Vink’s Arthur van Koetsveld, European Head of E-Commerce. Youwe’s CCO Erwin van Idelenburg adds: “This is a great achievement for Vink and Youwe as a strong solution partner. I am honored to accept this award together here at Imagine in Las Vegas!”
