Sensitivity and flexible production thanks to dedicated factories in Sri Lanka and Vietnam means that Blåkläder can produce bespoke solutions for specific groups of professionals.
E-commerce within the B2B segment is becoming stronger by the day and, one year on from Blåkläder launching its e-commerce activities on the STORM platform, the company’s turnover from online sales has doubled.
Blåkläder is a B2B producer, with customers based throughout the world. This means that the company has to process sales in different countries, with different prices and delivery methods for each individual customer and market. STORM provides Blåkläder with access to a scalable B2B solution and an advanced PIM implementation for all markets, streamlining information updates, providing better control of all flows and simplifying roll-out on new markets.
One of the key reasons why the company opted to choose STORM is that the platform acts independently from the business system and is a stable cloud service (SaaS), delivering the best possible level of scalability and performance.
Adlibris was founded in 1997 and is one of the major pioneers of Swedish e-commerce. Adlibris creates pleasurable, inspiring online shopping experiences and always strives to offer its customers fast deliveries and the best prices on the market.
Adlibris is now the leading online book retailer in Scandinavia, and during 2015 expanded its range to include some completely new product categories, aiming to be the region’s best value for money and most inspiring e-tailer of books, puzzles, stationary and toys.

With STORM, Adlibris has a solution that quickly and seamlessly imports product information, prices and stock balances from external suppliers and the company’s own internal systems, and uses this information to update Adlibris’ Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish websites.
Adlibris exemplifies how STORM can be used to offer a very extensive range of products on several different markets with minimal manual intervention.
