The cooperation HolzLand will launch a central online shop in the next few weeks. In the first registration phase, 65 HolzLand shareholders have already decided to participate in the shop.

“We are more than satisfied with the current registration number. It confirms that our shareholders are very interested in the ambitious project and see the advantages that the digital marketplace will bring them in the future,” comments Christian Haltermann, Head of Digital Services, the number of applications.

After the first registration phase has been completed, the team around Daniel Pioch, Head of E-Commerce Management, starts the onboarding process of the participating HolzLand partners. This includes any preparatory measures for the final dealer sites of the HolzLand partners, which will be released for go-live. “We are still able to maintain our timing communicated since the beginning of this year and realize the digital marketplace solution within the first quarter of 2018,” continued Christian Haltermann. The technical implementation of the online shop will be largely completed by the end of 2017. The first beta version of the central online shop is already being presented for the Wood Industry Day on 14th  and 15th  November 2017. The team “Digital Services” presents the beta version of the online shop to all interested parties directly at the HolzLand stand and is available for talks.
