Why Shopware TV came to market
In the "New Kid in Town" series, Sebastian Hamann, CEO of Shopware AG, says: "When people who don't know us come across Shopware, they may see us exclusively as an e-commerce company. Of course, they're not wrong to do that, but that view doesn't tell the whole story either."
This sentence should make it clear why Shopware has created a streaming service.
The ulterior motive of Shopware has always been that it should be about people.
The Shopware platform is also made for people. To offer people an easier and better shopping experience. On its own site, Shopware writes:
"We develop our software for the people who use it. That's why we foster the spirit of an open, global community. It animates us to revolutionize digital commerce and create forward-looking e-commerce solutions with passion, innovation and attention to detail.“
If this isn’t a clear statement. Here you can find the „about us“ pages from Shopware:
That's the reason Shopware TV was created. Through Shopware TV, the people behind Shopware are close. Apart from that, Shopware TV is an added value for the people who use Shopware. Because the videos package knowledge about business topics in a short, crisp and easy-to-understand way.
And have you already eaten all your snacks?-If not, you can directly start with a series! ;)
Shopware has definitely produced the series elaborately and with high quality.
The main purpose of Shopware TV is to give the community an insight into the work at Shopware and to do so with a good entertainment factor. We think Shopware has succeeded in this.
We think that Shopware has definitely created something extraordinary here and the series are high quality and informative at the same time. It will be interesting to see what other formats Shopware comes up with in the future. We're certainly looking forward to the Spotlight series, and the format already sounds promising.
