With a partner network of over 3,500 experts, Intershop is blessed - because all our partners are part of our team, part of our Intershop community. We not only share knowledge and insights with each other, but also respect each other's opinions and celebrate joint successes.
Around 80 percent of our business is done in teamwork with our partners, enabling us to master challenges together time and again, growing even closer together and achieving our goals in the best possible way.
To recognize and support our shared success, we offer an annual award for the most successful partners of the year. The Partner of the Year Awards are presented in the BeNeLux, DACH, France, Nordics, Europe and US regions. The aim is to give partners the opportunity to present themselves to the public as an outstanding part of the Intershop community.
But how do you win a partner award? The key factor is business success: A combination of new customer business, license revenues, and delivery excellence. In addition, of course, commitment to Intershop is also a key criterion.
In 2021, the following partners were particularly convincing in their regions:
De Nieuwe Zaak eCommerce B.V.
The 2021 Partner of the Year Award for the BeNeLux was presented to De Nieuwe Zaak. The full-service e-commerce agency is a leader in the Netherlands and believes that online shopping can always get better. With Heutink, we gained a valuable new customer last year that promotes the growth and development of children around the world by providing a wide range of educational products.
signTEK GmbH & Co. KG
In the GSA region, signTEK received the Partner Award. They develop powerful solutions for online shops, adapt them to individual objectives and integrate them seamlessly into the existing infrastructure. In 2021, the online shop of the specialist flooring retailer LaminatDEPOT was able to go live due to signTEK's excellent work. They are also constantly expanding the individual channels of the Block Group, namely Block House, Jim Block, Block Menu and Block Handel.
DATASOLUTION's mission is to support customers in their digital strategy. Our joint references are extensive, and the portfolio also expanded last year. Thus, we were able to take on new challenges with a new customer and three go-lives, presenting DATASOLUTION with the award for France. The projects come from the sectors of communication equipment manufacturing, wholesale of office supplies and agricultural services.
Evident Interactive B.V. (Valtech S.A.)
Evident - part of Valtech S.A. since March 2022 - creates commerce and service platforms that redefine the B2B digital experience. Although they are based in the Netherlands, they were presented the Partner of the Year Award for the Nordics region for their successful collaboration with our Swedish customer AtlasCopco since 2021, taking joint projects to a new level.
Wunderman Thompson Commerce
Working together on large, international projects in a wide variety of regions, Wunderman Thompson once again made many successes possible in 2021. Moreover, they are constantly working on the further development of our well-known customers such as SharkNinja, Staples, Motul, Bunzl, Jumbo Supermarkten, Isero and many more. For this reason, they have once again received the Partner of the Year Award for Europe.
Joining our other five winners on the podium, is DSS Partners representing the Americas. This groundbreaking services agency, is an Intershop Platinum Partner and is based out of Chicago, IL. With their deep B2B expertise, commitment to customer success and investment into an industry-leading Intershop accelerator store (DIAS), DSS collaborates with Intershop to provide clients with excellence in product know-how and implementation services. Our close cooperation has been instrumental in the success of some of our marquee clients, including KION North America, Highline Warren and Breg, Inc.
