Hippo and DesignUK: Multichannel and Ecommerce Expertise for UK Customers

DesignUK, with its ecommerce platform LavaSuite Commerce, understands the crucial role that content plays in the digital customer journey. “We clearly see a convergence of content and commerce in the market” says Hippo CEO Jeroen Verberg, “I’m excited that with DesignUK, Hippo can now serve the UK market with a solution that brings the power of targeting and multichannel to DesignUK’s B2B and ecommerce clients.” DesignUK’s extensive work with mobile web and mobile apps aligns with Hippo’s multichannel philosophy, making the two companies an excellent match.

For DesignUK, the partnership is motivated by Hippo’s Java-based system, which Managing Director Leigh Whitney describes as “an ideal platform for delivering solutions” to the company’s clients. With Hippo, we have found a like-minded company that has also invested heavily in leveraging the standardisation and innovation of the Apache Software foundation technologies within their core products and technologies.  “Hippo’s and DesignUK’s approach in this area provides the flexibility and rich functionality our clients demand.” A shared dedication to excellence further unites the two companies: “We’ve built our reputation on successfully delivering quality solutions to large enterprise organizations” Leigh notes, “Hippo is a high quality partner—I am confident that together we can deliver best of breed digital experiences to our UK and international clients as they grow their businesses globally.”
