Tool manufacturer GEDORE launches digital business unit

GEDORE Digital Solutions supports the development and scaling of trading partners' digital business models.

Remscheid, 12.01.2023 – Digitalisation in the retail landscape has become even more important following the challenges of recent years. For GEDORE, as one of the world's leading manufacturers of premium tools, digital business and sales models and the associated channels have been a significant strategic focus for some time now. As the result of this, on 1.1.2023 these focus topics were bundled in their own separate company, GEDORE Digital Solutions, of which Dr. Jan Herstell is the managing director. The experts at GEDORE Digital Solutions are strong partners who support their trading partners with high-quality digital content. In addition, they also advise on the development and implementation of new business models or on the scaling of existing digital ones, and implement individually optimised target-orientated solutions together with retailers.

The increasing digitalisation in tool trade and sales offers a multitude of new possibilities. At the same time, though, these developments are also changing the requirements for retailers and suppliers. Processing and shipping speed, plus the high quality of content, are becoming increasingly relevant in strengthening the competitive position on the market. By the same token, it is important to satisfy a wide range of individual interface requirements in order to meet the needs of automation in customer procurement processes.

Having already been a strategic and operational focus for a number of years now, the digital business unit is now physically taking shape. GEDORE Digital Solutions supports B2B and B2C online pure players and multi-channel retailers. And classic retailers also benefit from offers such as individual consulting for the development of their business models and the upgrading of their data quality through content that is specifically tailored to them. In addition, retailers can increase their own productivity with the appropriate interface integration and the associated automation of various systems while avoiding sources of error and reducing throughput times. The specialists at GEDORE Digital Solutions provide support for these and many other complex topics.

"The name GEDORE Digital Solutions says it all. With the launch of our new strategic business unit, we are bundling comprehensive expert knowledge in the field of high quality data and digital business model design. By doing so, we are actively supporting our partners as the driver of future-orientated retail and platform solutions and, for instance, are also showing how classic and digital business models can be reconciled in an efficient and process-optimised manner," explains Managing Director Dr. Jan Herstell.
