...luxury fashion brand chooses hybris solutions as foundation for expanding multichannel revenues and international expansion...

London – 31 May, 2011. hybris, a global leader in multichannel commerce solutions, has today announced that it has won the contract to provide Mulberry (www.mulberry.com), the iconic British fashion brand, with three core elements of the hybris Multichannel Suite – hybris B2C Commerce, hybris Mobile and hybris Web Content Management – to underpin its extensive e-commerce and international expansion plans.

Mulberry has, to date, been using a bespoke software solution to support online sales, however, with the rapid expansion of its brand across the globe, Mulberry has been keen to select a new multichannel platform that would be fully scalable, and would allow it to maximize revenues and support new business opportunities. The company extensively reviewed a range of commerce platforms available on the market over the last year before selecting hybris.

Commenting, Charlotte O’Sullivan, Head of Online at Mulberry said: “We were looking for a platform that could offer us scalability and flexibility, coupled with a strong multi-channel offer, best-in-class functionality and a clear roadmap of platform innovation.”

Within the hybris Multichannel Suite, hybris B2C Commerce enables businesses to optimise every interaction with their customers on a global scale. The Mobile solution enables e-commerce retailers to create mobile online experience for customers, from building mobile-friendly websites to mobile-specific applications. Hybris Web Content Management will intuitively allow Mulberry to present its brand consistently and efficiently administer and publish content across all its channels – improving the customer experience and boosting sales.

Speaking about the new contract, Ariel Lüdi, CEO of hybris, said: “We have worked with many leading brands and are delighted to have Mulberry join our customer community. We are very pleased that they have selected three of our core solutions to help them form a strong, stable and highly creative cornerstone to their rapidly expanding multichannel operation.”
