Zak Stambor , Managing Editor

Gatineau, Quebec – November 9, 2009 – Cactus Commerce is pleased to announce the new Bilka ecommerce site has launched. Bilka is the premier hyper-market chain in Denmark owned by the Dansk Supermarked Gruppen (DSG). Other leading brands in the DSG family include Fotex, Netto and Salling.

“The vision for DSG is to extend our brand reach, leading with our Bilka chain. Our goal is to become a destination e-commerce site in Denmark, for a broad range of products that will expand beyond our current e-commerce offering to include new categories such as wine, electronics, furniture and clothing.

We chose Cactus Commerce because of their vast experience and expertise in B2C e-commerce solutions. One of our priorities was the consolidation of multiple brands on a single infrastructure, and establishing a framework for future multi-channel functionality.” stated Mr. Kim Nissen, Manager of IT&S; System Development, DSG.

The Bilka e-commerce site was built using the robust Microsoft® Commerce Server 2007 platform. This platform can assist with the future integration of other existing DSG web stores including Photo Processing, and Music Downloads. This project also featured a successful partnership with local firm Vertica, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner in Custom Development Solutions, SOA, and Business Process. Vertica helped develop a number of e-commerce feature sets, and was a strong contributor to the custom integration development work, particularly around the Warehouse Management solution.

“Working with DSG and local partner Vertica has been a fantastic foray into the Nordic region for us. We look forward the opportunity to explore more opportunities in the region.” says Tony Marinelli, CEO, Cactus Commerce.
