French Retailer Groupe ÉRAM to Expand and Accelerate Online Business with Oracle Commerce

Groupe ÉRAM has chosen Oracle Commerce to support its initiative of creating a multi-site ecommerce platform for its shoes and apparel brands. With 1,650 stores across brands such as Eram and GEMO, Groupe ÉRAM wants to extend its operations through a next level ecommerce strategy.

By selecting Oracle Commerce, the retailer will be able to take advantage of a single platform to operate multiple integrated commerce sites. Groupe ÉRAM will roll out Oracle Commerce across 7 brands, ahead of a wider deployment, creating new ecommerce opportunities for some brands and replacing legacy open source solutions for others, which have lacked the scalability, flexibility and functionality necessary to support the group’s ecommerce ambitions.

The deployment of Oracle Commerce will help Groupe ÉRAM deliver a Commerce Anywhere customer experience through a personalized, relevant and connected interaction. The retailer will be able to promote more targeted offers to drive cross- and up-sell opportunities and improve conversion rates, while the single platform will help to keep the costs in check.
