manroland web systems will start the pilot stage for the new MARKET-X trading platform from August 2017 in order to connect more and more qualified suppliers to the future marketplace of the printing industry. MARKET-X trading platform will have numerous suppliers and will lift up the one-stop shopping experience to the next level.
Presently, the manroland web STORE supplies well over a thousand web offset customers with spare and wear parts as well as authorized consumables. Completely redesigned and relaunched in July 2016, this well-established online shop follows the model of the most modern shops in the B2C sector.
MARKET-X trading platform is a further development of the established manroland web STORE to offer customers of manroland web systems and others a much wider selection of products and services.
The first suppliers have already started to sell their products at the manroland web STORE. “We are very happy to welcome considerable players from the printing industry. Together with a range of selected pilot customers, we are at the testing phase at the moment. The manroland web STORE has been established to be user friendly and in close cooperation with our customers to implement all additional functions which are required in a B2B world. Having the customer as the main focus of all of our activities ensures ideal solutions. We are proud to provide the same high level of service for the additional MARKET-X products,” explains Alexander Wachter, vice president – eCommerce & Customer Support.
The company will further work on new improvements and functions to offer the most modern shop for the industry. “The main objective is to offer a round-the-clock modern, convenient and reliable one-stop shopping experience no matter from where in the world. That’s what I would like to call a MARKET-neXt Generation,” Wachter confidently says.
