• Office Depot Europe unveils new Viking website

        • Office Depot has invested in new technology to launch a new UK website for Viking, providing businesses with a more efficient and effective user experience.

          The new home for office products boasts a cleaner appearance and is compatible across all devices, including smartphones, tablets and desktops. Visitors can take advantage of a more detailed search function which includes filter menus, product identification and personal shopping lists, while Nectar Business points available for UK customers. 

          Developed using SAP Commerce Cloud’s eCommerce platform, the significant investment will ensure Viking’s 1.2 million small and medium-sized customers will be able to find everything they need for their offices. Supported by its parent company, AURELIUS, Office Depot Europe is significantly investing in eCommerce across its businesses and initial findings show positive trends in orders, conversion rates and average order value, to name a few.

          Ralf Hensen, Sr Director eCommerce Sales & Operation at Office Depot Europe said, “regardless of how our customers choose to buy our products and services, we continually strive to offer all our customers improved ways of engaging with us. The new website enables our customers easy access to the workplace solutions they are looking for.

          “I’m delighted about the positive impact the new eCommerce platform for Viking in the UK is having on our customer experience. Visitors are benefiting from our speedy and easily accessible ordering system, making the process much simpler.”

          Cameron Black, Director Digital Engineering added, “our partnership with SAP has enabled us to rapidly innovate our eCommerce sites utilising its Commerce Cloud. The technology allows us to rapidly deliver additional value to our customers by continuously improving their experiences when shopping with us in a modern agile way. The rollout of this single coding system across all our sites provides us with a stable platform to efficiently deliver our eCommerce Strategy and the technology of the future.”
