Fail proof authentication
Vaimo implemented the Swedish authentication system using a customer’s bank ID and social security number for an iron-clad login system. This connects with the BAUHAUS ERP system which links the correct account. It provides the customer with the possibility to select different companies they are associated with, using just one login credential. Customers simply login with their social security number, bank ID, and then choose their company.
Bauhaus B2B portal
The BAUHAUS B2B portal offers a main account with connected sub accounts. The owner of the account can administer different employees and oversee their individual payment options. The account owner also controls how much credit is left for the overall account. The B2B customer portal is fully tailored and API session-based with its own set of payment options and a BAUHAUS credit card, available exclusively for B2B customers. Vaimo has decreased the lead time from when a B2B client applies online for an account with BAUHAUS by integrating an automatic check from a credit company.
The physical BAUHAUS stores have large touch screens in various locations, where B2B/B2C customers can place orders, browse and search products, and leave customer reviews. There’s even the possibility to purchase products and arrange for home delivery. Customers can also send their carts through text message or email and finalise the checkout process on their own device. The result is a more integrated omni-channel experience for BAUHAUS’ B2B and B2C customers.
“Vaimo has helped BAUHAUS bring the complexity of home improvement retail to the web in a simple and cost-efficient manner. They have delivered a stable advanced commerce platform through multiple projects that supports our growth and our business. Vaimo is a group of energetic people with a proven track record of delivering valuable solutions on a consistent basis.”
eCommerce and System Manager
BAUHAUS Sweden takes care of all deliveries by themselves (in specific areas of Sweden) instead of using a partner. The pilot project went live in early 2018 and features BAUHAUS’ own logistics solution with the support of a native internal app for BAUHAUS employees which supports deliveries for both B2B and B2C customers. This solution is unique to BAUHAUS, with no one else in Sweden having this function. The native app controls the flow for drivers and distribution centre personnel. There is an integration with a PTV system for routing deliveries and a modified Magento order flow.
