Leifheit has been selling household essentials for more than 60 years. These include accessories for cleaning, ironing, cooking and storage. The store has everything a customer may need to keep their home tidy and comfortable.

What sets the brand apart is its versatility, the compatibility of replacement items for different products and the high quality of the available range. After taking Germany by storm, Leifheit was able to tackle international markets.

Although at first, the company exclusively targeted B2B sales, in recent years, it has decided to enter the world of e-commerce. In 2019, 16% of Leifheit’s revenue came from online activities. In 2020, this revenue share was already 19%! Currently, the online store is Leifheit’s second largest distribution channel.

How do you create a modern e-commerce?

The Leifheit brand, in collaboration with edrone, has focused on developing its online sales. To progress in this area, the company needed a solid business partner – and it chose us.

edrone has all the necessary tools for successfully manage and run businesses in modern e-commerce. The edrone system inspired Leifheit’s active involvement in the online sales process. The company wouldn’t have been able to accomplish such goals through brick-and-mortar shops. What were the contributing factors? Without a doubt – the company’s marketing automation, the contact database expansion and personalised recommendations. Why don’t we take a closer look at these aspects?

Having considered a choice of potential options, we have settled on edrone, as the edrone system stood out because of its functions and was specifically developed for e-commerce. From then on, it has become a fundamental part of the company’s online activities.
