Smart Commerce joins forces with SAP Hybris expert niin.

Jena/Leipzig - Smart Commerce SE and niin GmbH announce the merger of the two companies. niin CEO Ingo Körber is appointed to the Management Board of Smart Commerce.

In mid-2017, Smart Commerce launched its product expansion strategy with services on another market-leading eCommerce platform.

The merger with niin enables Smart Commerce to achieve technical excellence in Intershop implementations as well as Hybris services for SAP. Both platforms are based on Java technologies. In combination with the Hybris expertise of niin and the methodical excellence of Smart Commerce, the "Smart eCommerce Implementation" in the version "SeCI for Hybris" was created as a first step. With this merger, Smart Commerce can significantly expand its eCommerce competencies and its network into the hubris world.  

CEO Dr. Vogt is looking forward to the merger: "We are very pleased that Ingo Körber comes on board with his SAP Hybris experience and his network as a board member. Smart Commerce will take another step towards eCommerce excellence and capacity with the niin team". Ingo Körber, CEO of niin and from December CEO of Smart Commerce SE: "We can offer our customers a very broad eCommerce know-how in the future, based on many years of experience in Intershop and SAP Hybris. This makes the merger very attractive for us and our customers.  I look forward to working with many experienced eCommerce colleagues." With the merger of the two companies Smart Commerce starts for the first time a program for the recruitment and training of young Java software developers.
