Pixelpark Forms Partnership With Intershop

Pixelpark, a full-service digital agency in Germany, and Intershop Communications Inc., a provider of electronic commerce software, formed a strategic alliance.

Intershop will provide e-commerce software for Pixelpark's locations in Berlin, Hamburg, New York, and Paris.

The partnership news arrives along with the agency's announcement of its newest office, Pixelpark France, scheduled to open August 3 in Paris, and just over a month after the opening of Pixelpark USA in New York.

Intershop said it will work with Pixelpark to help deliver service and products to the agency's e-commerce clients throughout the world. Financial terms of the arrangement were not disclosed.

Paulus Neef, founder and chairman of Pixelpark, said, "With the continual growth of the Internet, we are seeing the development of a smaller, nearly borderless international business community. Pixelpark needs to be able to deliver the strongest and most flexible of e-commerce solutions to our clients and their customers. Intershop is an ideal partner."

Said Stephan Schambach, president and CEO of San Francisco-based Intershop: "With our combined global presence, Pixelpark and Intershop will offer the world's leading companies international e-commerce solutions that will unlock the full potential of the digital marketplace."

Intershop 3 offers an integrated transaction server, four-tiered architecture, Hybrid HTML, distributed load balancing and availability for the Sun Solaris operating system, and can give hosts the capacity to manage thousands of online stores with millions of transactions per day.

Pixelpark's clients include Adidas, Conrad Electronic GmbH, Deutsche Telekom, Unilever, Lufthansa and Siemens.
