"We wanted the flexibility to present our brand exactly how we see it. By leveraging the cloud commerce platform from commercetools, we can focus on our core business and servicing our customers. "
Rune Berendtsen, CEO, AIAIAI
commercetools, a global leader in next-generation commerce software, today announced a partnership with AIAIAI, the electro-acoustics brand and Danish maker of high-end audio equipment and consumer electronics. AIAIAI chose commercetools to revamp its commerce system and build a stronger foundation for continued, international growth.
Since its launch in 2006, AIAIAI has grown significantly and now operates in over 40 countries across Europe, North America, and Asia. It needed a commerce solution that could cope with high volumes of traffic at a global scale.
AIAIAI found commercetools to be the ideal commerce solution because its use of microservices delivers high flexibility and scalability. The headless, API-based, agile architecture of the commercetools platform enables AIAIAI to leverage core commerce functionality, and expand into as many international markets as it wishes, while maintaining full control of the storefront. In addition, flexible extensions can be added to commercetools at any time to easily test and rollout new features.
As a result of partnering with commercetools, AIAIAI has improved its operational efficiencies, increased revenue, and upgraded its storefront without any disruption to its back offices systems because of the headless capabilities of the platform.
“We wanted the flexibility to present our brand exactly how we see it”, explained Rune Berendtsen, CEO at AIAIAI. “By leveraging the cloud commerce platform from commercetools, we can focus on our core business and servicing our customers. Since the beginning we have also been convinced by the support and expertise of the commercetools team.”
Commenting on the partnership, Dirk Hoerig, CEO at commercetools added, “Without the right commerce architecture, scaling up can be a big challenge for brands. With commercetools, AIAIAI has the freedom and flexibility to expand and adapt its business, meet increasing demand for its unique products and welcome new customers across the world as it grows.”
