dotSource's full-service solution enabled Envases
(at that time HUBER Packaging Group) to get started in
e-commerce with few resources of its own – despite little e-commerce experience.
Especially smaller business customers, whose support via field service employees would have been a relatively high cost factor, can now be optimally served via the online shop and – most importantly – quickly receive products directly from the warehouse.
Furthermore, Envases uses the online shop to increase its reach for acquiring new customers.
While dotSource GmbH and an e-commerce manager at Envases take care of all tasks in the e-commerce value chain, the Envases sales department can focus entirely on its core business and on personal support and advice for existing customers.
