kloeckner.i and diva-e join forces in the field of digital strategy and implementation consulting
End-to-end digital consulting for maximum customer value added
kloeckner.i, the digital unit of international steel distributor Klöckner & Co, and diva-e, leading Transactional Experience Partner for digital business, have intensified their cooperation and will now offer their consulting services jointly.
Over the past five years, kloeckner.i has accumulated vast experience in digitalizing the internal processes and sales channels of Klöckner & Co. The cultural change within the Group that accompanied its digitalization was also successfully supported by kloeckner.i. For example, the Group has already achieved significant progress in establishing agile working practices and an open failure culture. This has resulted in Klöckner & Co now generating more than a quarter of its annual sales of almost €7 billion through digital channels.
diva-e is a longstanding digital partner of kloeckner.i. Thanks to diva-e's support in the technical development of software and platforms, Klöckner & Co online shops selling steel and metal products have already been launched in six countries. Most recently, the partnership reached another milestone by developing the online shops into platforms through which 30 third-party vendors now sell complementary products. In addition to supporting Klöckner & Co, diva-e provides services to numerous other market leaders and "hidden champions" in a variety of industries. Its unwavering focus is the development of services and products that create digital experiences and generate sustainable business success.
Christian Dyck, CEO of kloeckner.i, explains: "On the back of successfully digitalizing Klöckner & Co, we began offering digital consulting services to external companies at the start of the year. To do this, we cooperate with selected premium partners such as diva-e to ensure we are able to offer our customers a top-quality, end-to-end consulting and implementation package."
Sirko Schneppe, Founder and CSO diva-e Platforms, says: "kloeckner.i and diva-e have a wealth of experience in digitalizing traditional companies. So pooling our consulting and solutions portfolio is the logical next step in our longstanding successful collaboration. Both partners are passionate not only about developing theoretical digital concepts, but also implementing actual digital projects with quantifiable economic benefits."
The partners will be presenting their joint consulting and solutions portfolio for the first time at the OMR Festival 2019 in Hamburg on May 7 and 8, 2019. Visitors can find them at booth C12-C15 in Hall B6 West Expo, where those interested will have the opportunity to speak directly to digital experts from the two companies. Appointments can be arranged in advance here.
