Hitachi Power Tools will start using IT-tools from WebOn

Press release   •   Apr 15, 2013 15:17 CEST

WebOn is strengthening its position in the market for tools and building supplies through an agreement with Hitachi Power Tools Norway – one of the Nordic region’s leading suppliers to the construction industry. WebOn’s Product Information Management (PIM) Solution will be implemented with WebOn’s solution for printed catalogue, and integrated towards Hitachi’s existing e-commerce solution.

“We chose WebOn based on recommendations from other players in our industry, who had solved similar challenges by using PIM”, says Marketing Coordinator in Hitachi Power Tools Norway Tone Jensen

The system, which will be integrated to the Norwegian database for building supplies (NOBB), will ease the tasks related to data registration, and at the same time make it easier for Hitachi to make their products visible for the different parties in the building supplies industry.

“We look forward to being able to communicate updated product information to all of our partners more easily. The solution will also provide master data and market information to all of our daughter companies in Sweden, Denmark and Finland. PIM will make their job a lot easier with regards to updating product information”, continues Tone Jensen.

“When a strong brand such as Hitachi chooses WebOn to deliver a Nordic solution for PIM and production of print catalogues we take it as a confirmation of signals we previously have received from Ventana Research, rating WebOn as an internationally leading PIM supplier”, says CEO in WebOn Einar Augedal. WebOn already has a strong foothold as a supplier to players in the building supplies industry and plan further improvements to its products and services to this customer group through closer collaboration with industry data bases such as NOBB, EFO and NRF.
