For Suppliers

11.12.2015 Briefing on Alko online store for the suppliers

The project of Alko online store proceeds as planned. In supplier events, workshops and discussions the Alko online store has been considered to have a significant commercial potential and to be an excellent channel for serving customers.

Alko online store is an important contribution to ensuring even better customer service in the future. Lately Alko has been seeking for answers and solutions for the questions that has been raised among suppliers. For example, the collecting of single bottles together with the real time and automated availability information have been brought up in the discussions. In addition to the proposed logistic model, Alko has been mapping other functional alternatives from the suppliers’ point of view during the autumn.

In the beginning of next year Alko will come back to the details of Alko online store which will ensure the desired customer experience.

In spring 2016 a pilot for companies is meant to be started. The actual corporate sales is intended to begin in the summer 2016 and the online store is planned to be launched in the end of the year 2016. Alko will inform the suppliers actively on the matter also in the future.
