Arvato Systems Helps BELIMO to Reach a New, Global B2B E-Commerce Presence

Go live of the new BELIMO.com as well as the BELIMO US and the BELIMO Canada website. Global Arvato Systems team implements web presence based on SAP Hybris, SAP CPQ, and Magnolia CMS. Achievement of an important milestone in the Group-wide, digital strategy of BELIMO.

BELIMO relies on the IT specialist Arvato Systems for the implementation of their international B2B web shops. The international Swiss group of companies in the field of electric drive solutions in heating, ventilation and air conditioning technology launched the new Swiss main page (www.belimo.com), the new US (www.belimo.us) and the new Canada website (www.belimo.ca).

The go-live of the web shops is a significant milestone in BELIMO's digital strategy: The previously heterogeneous marketing and e-commerce application landscape are being merged into a global, consolidated web presence. BELIMO's goal is to further underscore its position as a provider of innovative and high-quality products with this initiative and provide a clear, consistent and global brand message. BELIMO will thus provide its customers with an integrated, state-of-the-art Digital Customer Journey.

"As it turns out, Arvato Systems is the ideal partner for our project. The interdepartmental and international cooperation worked very well on a global level," said Dieter Mueller, Head of Data Management Division, BELIMO AG.

The global Arvato Systems team made this possible with an integrated platform based on Magnolia CMS 5.5, SAP Hybris B2B Accelerator 6.2 and the latest version of SAP CPQ 2.0 (Configure, Price, Quote). As one of the early adopters of SAP CPQ, this allows BELIMO the flexibility to define configurable products and pricing in SAP ERP once and then seamlessly pull and cache the configuration into the Hybris webshop. Customers can then configure their products using the latest configuration and pricing, thereby eliminating real-time performance issues asking for this data directly from ERP. Magnolia marketing content and Hybris commerce are seamlessly integrated via RESTful Web services, and Hybris Data Hub is utilized to send and receive order and account data asynchronously from the webshop to ERP. Arvato Systems was also responsible for the implementation of a responsive look and feel to allow BELIMO customers the option to use mobile devices to shop on-the-go.
