BAUHAUS Sweden wanted to create an online trade environment that would suit B2C and B2B buyers alike and provide them with virtual tools that would make shopping easier. Vaimo helped BAUHAUS achieve this by building customised features throughout the site, such as separate prototypes for guides that prevent customers from making wrong selections of products based on the project type they selected.

Vaimo helped BAUHAUS achieve this by building customised features throughout the site, such as separate prototypes for guides that prevent customers from making wrong selections of products based on the project type they selected. Third party integrations with Nosto and Resurs Bank support product recommendations, back-in-stock notifications and payment solutions. The B2B customer portal is fully tailored and API session-based, with its own set of payment options and a BAUHAUS credit card. The site allows the customer to shop with ease, locate the nearest retailer, order installations and even arrange special deliveries.

The conservatory designer gives the customer the possibility of customising their conservatory after their needs and wishes. The execution can be made to fit needs dependant on seasonal use and aesthetics with additional accessories. After that the individual products are collected directly from BAUHAUS supplier and put together into a comprehensive package for the customer.
Click & Collect
To be able to choose between home delivery or store pick-up is more or less given for the customer today when shopping online. BAUHAUS fully supports this and lets the customer choose as they place the item in the shopping basket with the choice of picking up in store or deliver home. The check-out is then adapted for that choice. The customer can also choose to pay in store or by one of the usual payment methods found online. The items are usually available for pickup the following day in the chosen store.
Corporate clients can place orders for pick-up or delivery in the same process. No separate orders necessary. The customer can also handle separate accounts for the company so that different employees can make their own orders for the active projects. These are saved in their own address book. The customer can also see all order history, both online and in store. The customer can also pay with BAUHAUS own company invoice feature.
On some locations in Sweden, the customer can decide exactly when the delivery should be made by using the current post code. The customer receives choices on day and time period when the delivery should be made. The customer can also choose between some additional features such as exact time for delivery, removal of packaging or carrying to front door.

The Proactiv+. webshop had been built on hard-coded, completely inflexible templates that drastically affected the stabiliy of the shop. They wanted to switch to a responsive-first design to cater to a heavily mobile-driven target group to enhance the customer experience and make the shop easier to update internally. Vaimo’s solution did all that and more.
Björn Borg wanted to make its eCommerce site more user-friendly, improve the checkout process and make the site more cost-effective. The company selected Magento as it was recommended by other eCommerce companies which later lead them to Vaimo, due to Vaimo’s extensive knowledge and expertise in eCommerce.
