EXCLUSIVE: Aqipa To Launch White Label B2B Site, 10,000 SKU’s Available
Austrian distributor Aqipa Gear Guru who last year bought into the Australian market is set to launch a new online platform that allows Australian retailers to sell anyone of their local products by simply plugging in their new Hybris B2b trading platform.
Small specialist consumer electronics and audio retailers as well as large organisations such as JB HI FI or Harvey Norman will be able to build out a B2B store ranging and selling more than 10,000 Aqipa distributed products.
Sohan Karunaratne a Director at Aqipa Australia and New Zealand said that the new platform will not only open up capabilities and products for retailers but provide them with an easy to operate online store where all fulfilment, returns and SKU marketing is all one by Aqipa.

Among the brands Aquipa gear Guru distribute globally are Bang & Olufsen, Case Logic, Pure, Audio Pro, Pioneer, Focal, Onkyo, AARKE, Focal, Jabra, JBL Harman, Marshall, Master Dynamics and Thule.
According to Karunaratne, Aqipa Australia is set to locate their own content manager in Europe so that the right content information relating to specifications and local regulation requirments are “properly loaded” into the system.
The project which has been in the making for 18 months is based on the SAP Hybris platform.
This is a sophisticated eCommerce platform that is capable of delivering integrated products for products for retailers.

Among the tools available is a product information management tool, a customer service tool, back office management tools, enterprise search tooling, marketing related functionality, and lots more.
