Ecommerce software startup Intershop has signed a non exclusive global marketing and distribution deal with Cap Gemini, Europe’s largest systems integrator.
The publicly listed East German vendor, whose products include Intershop Online, Intershop Mall and Intershop Enterprise Solution, has already entered alliances with heavyweight vendors including Sun Microsystems, Hewlett Packard and Bull.
International management consultancy Coopers & Lybrand signed a similar deal with Intershop last year to spearhead its push into ecommerce services. (see Newswire 12 January)
Cap Gemini will market Intershop technology to all industries, with particular focus on the telecommunications sector.
“We think Intershop is a good package especially for telcos that want to build ecommerce solutions,” head of Internet business in Cap Gemini’s telecoms unit, Jean-Pierre Levy, said.
Telcos would be best placed to deliver Internet trading solutions to small and medium sized companies, Levy said.
“Our analysis today is that a lot of companies would rather have off the shelf systems than build their own. Telcos will deliver solutions based on [Intershop technology]. Our plan is to help them build them,” he said.
