In early 2012, Smilehouse formed the hybris Northern Coalition with Swedish hybris implementation partner’s iStone and Brightstep, which have implemented solutions for companies such as H&M, Alfa Laval, Clas Ohlson, Stadium etc. This arrangement provides Smilehouse a shared hybris consultant resource pool and enables the counterparts to share best practice solutions between each other across different industries. The strategic partnership has initiated dynamically, and in addition to providing Smilehouse resources to projects in Sweden, Smilehouse has had the chance to utilize the available resources of Brighstep and iStone in order to provide exceptional lead times in hybris implementation projects. Through these partners Smilehouse is also able to support customers in Baltics. In addition, Smilehouse has near-shoring resources in Eastern Europe, which enables short implementation times without risking the quality.
“In Nordics, Smilehouse has been pushing forward the strategic co-operation with Swedish hybris-partners iStone and Brightstep, and together these companies have formed a strong offering of resources and experience to implement complex projects with hybris”, says Frank Schoutissen, Vice President Channel from hybris Software.
