With HG COMMERCIALE’s “smart commerce and corporate platform” project, valantic won a second award, a bronze award, in the “productivity” category.
Augmented shop experience for Spaeter
The Swiss wholesaler Spaeter is always working on improving customer experience – among other ways, in cooperation with valantic. The company’s latest – and now officially recognized – successful project is a pick-up shop with 24/7 access, augmented reality navigation, and self check-out. Spaeter and valantic have therefore linked the existing online shop and the Spaeter app with the stationary business to create a unique augmented shop experience.
Smart commerce & corporate platform for HGC
The independent traders’ cooperative of the Swiss Master Builders’ Association HG COMMERCIALE is blazing a path toward the digital transformation – and valantic is there to assist the company with this. The aim of the new integrated commerce and corporate platform: To set a benchmark for B2B online trading in the construction industry. The Best of Swiss Web Award in Bronze confirms this project’s potential for success.

The presentation of this year’s Digital Commerce Awards was also a success for Spaeter AG and valantic: The augmented shop experience was the winner in the “Best feature” category. In addition, the project won bronze in the “Omnichannel and innovation” category.
