The webshop of the retail chain, established in 2003 to help cater to the retailer’s growing customer base. Teknosa has chosen Icecat to provide rich content, including product specifications, marketing texts, and high-quality images in order to automate and streamline the flow of product information. Teknosa is predominantly using product information from the Computers & Electronics category. In order to increase the percentage of products sold by Teknosa.com, a collaboration project has been established. The partnership’s goal is to direct brands to add their products to the Icecat catalog directly. Some of the brands referred to Icecat by Teknosa in Turkey include Vestel, Apple, LG, Microsoft, Electrolux, and Samsung.

We built a seamless integration with Icecat services, which minimized our content editors’ efforts on product detail pages. Now, Icecat provides specs, product images and marketing texts which are real-time published on our website. The rich content provided by Icecat improved the average page visit time as well as customer satisfaction.

Icecat integration aids us in reaching critical business goals such as improving SEO. We combine Icecat with unique content. It’s surely an advantage.

We enjoy achieving higher levels of customer engagement, via our cooperation with Icecat!”
