Event agency Jochen Schweizer expands online sales…

Ensuring that leisure adventures don’t turn into software adventures.
Demandware solution is realised by Mobizcorp Europe

Mobizcorp will set up the entire e-business platform before the summer trade begins and then take over the service. Jochen Schweizer will profit from the advantages of a tailor-made on-demand solution without having to invest upfront in expensive software or having to run costly data processing centres. The platform will run on external servers and will be regularly updated and expanded with new functions.

The decisive factor in the expansion of Jochen Schweizer’s internet trade was the experience of the last Christmas trading season, when the system was being stretched due to extremely high demand and soon reached its full operating capacity. The new expandable demandware solution can easily respond to seasonal variations in demand. Over and above this the demandware solution offers more functionality at clear and manageable costs. This includes for example redeeming coupons and vouchers or integration with the affiliated supplier Zanox. Additionally, the e-business solution will be available within a matter of weeks.

Event-guru Jochen Schweizer comments: “With Mobizcorp’s modern e-commerce product range we have taken a decision against a risky and uncontrollable software and hardware adventure. We are not subject to high initial investments and continuous tying-up of internal resources. Our speciality is leisure adventures, and that´s how it should stay.”

Unique experiences and unforgettable moments are on offer in the shop at www.jochen-schweizer.de, with a focus on leisure. These range from off-roading in a giant US vehicle Hummer to tandem skydives and quad biking, from driver training in original racing cars to flights at 2.5 times the speed of sound in a MIG-29.
