ECOMMERCE SPECIALIST VAIMO AND KIOSKED TEAM UP TO TAKE ONLINE SALES AND MARKETING TO THE NEXT LEVEL – FROM WEB SHOPS TO WEB WIDE SHOPS.
Kiosked offers an entirely new way for companies to establish an online presence and engage with customers. With Kiosked brands can activate kiosks (i.e. storefronts) in any online content (such as images, videos, games etc.), and spread it virally via fans and publishers while still retaining control. Vaimo and Kiosked have created a standard module that gives Magento merchants the possibility to be live with the Kiosked service within minutes.
Kiosked CEO and Founder, Micke Paqvalén describes the platform’s impact in a real-world environment: “For the first time, brands will have the ability to turn online shopping impulses into sales.” We’re now ready to move to the next level: attracting, supporting and growing the number of companies using Magento and Kiosked. That’s why we approached Vaimo, one of the leading Magento Solution Partners.”
“We are noticing an interesting trend. Brands want to be closer to their end-customer and interact with them seamlessly at every possible touch point while the end-customer want to experience the brand with relevant context and on their own terms. We forged a strategic partnership and built a Kiosked integration for Magento, a leading eCommerce platform,” says, David Holender, Vaimo CEO and Founder.
The integration means that merchants using the Magento platform will be able to effortlessly transfer their full product catalogue into kiosks and ensure that any changes made to specifications such as pricing or availability are simultaneously reflected in their kiosks.
“As a commerce disrupter ourselves, we are thrilled that Vaimo and Kiosked chose to build an integration with the Magento platform. This solution, and their strategy, shows a real understanding of where commerce is heading. Kiosked on Magento exemplifies the ingenuity that the worldwide network of Magento partners and merchants have come to stand for,” said Scott Dahlgren, head of worldwide channel sales for Magento.
