The editors of the Handelskraft blog from the city of light Jena. In dotSource’s offices, we investigate every which moves the e-commerce branch for our readers. The location Jena is perfectly suited to this: the branch continues to grow in the East-Thuringian state and there is even talk of an e-commerce campus. The Ernst-Abbe technical university offers an e-commerce degree and Intershop have their HQ in the Jentower. Thanks to over 20,000 students, Jena is not only an innovative business location, but a young, vital town.

    Hi there,

    Hi, I’m Oliver Kling. I haven’t introduced myself yet and want to catch up on this now.

    For 21 days now I’ve been calling the dotSource marketing team my new professional home. I am here to x-ray the colourful and speedy world of digital commerce in all its facets on and together with my colleague Sara. We know that we’re following in big footsteps, but we are brave enough to face this challenge.

    Problem solved: friendly people save stationary trade

    Posted on 7. April 2015 by .

    To summarise a trader comparison done in 141 cities: the ten most friendly traders are in Jena. Jena, the “the centre of digital commerce” took the lead among the middle German cities. In the categories: friendliness, quality of consultation, and value for money, owner-operated businesses got best ratings.

    The upward trend is continuing with an increase of 0.4 percentage points. This is a really positive result for Jena when you think that not all cities can expect a positive trend in a repeat examination.

    Marc ­Loibl, MF Consulting, head of the study

    The fathers of the city and the local press (“Friendly traders work in Jena”) are celebrating, and the traders should also give themselves a pat on the back. So customers enjoy going into shops. Possible problems and development trends just have to be pushed aside here.

    But from an e-commerce perspective, all this feel-good journalism makes me quite queazy:

    A Big Thank You for a Wonderful First Jana E-Commerce Breakfast

    Posted on 2. December 2014 by .

    Thuringia (and especially Jena) doesn’t have to hide! That much was clear after the last Handelskraft e-commerce breakfast for 2014. Together with 15 local traders and manufacturers, we discussed the future of e-commerce with Jochen Krisch. We talked about more than just Amazon or even e-commerce in general.

    After all, the challenges are growing well beyond the framework of e-commerce. All businesses have to address the topic of digitalen Transformation and the discussion has long included areas such as online marketing or data management. The cross-overs are increasing on the technical and strategic levels and the direction this journey could take is demonstrated by branch trail blazers, such as “About You.”
