Case Study: New Website for ZGONC - Happy Shopping and Working

ZGONC Handels GmbH, based in Austria, is a specialty retailer for tools, machinery, construction, and garden equipment with locations in Vienna, Lower Austria, Upper Austria, Burgenland, Styria, Carinthia, and Salzburg.

In 1957 ZGONC mainly sold used tools and machines. Today, the company is THE specialty store for tools, machines, construction and garden equipment – “unerreicht in Österreich” (unmatched in Austria). Speaking of success: In the digital world, ZGONC is now forging ahead with a brand-new online presence by elements. After a good seven years, it was time to give the outdated website an upgrade to bring it up to the state of the art.

The challenge: numerous wishes and requirements from stakeholders

Existing partners, the search provider, the payment provider and, of course, ZGONC itself: They all had unique requirements regarding the new website and expressed their individual wishes. This resulted in a long to-do list, which presented a number of challenges. There were numerous system connections and interfaces that had to be set up in the backend – always with the aim of achieving an increase in the level of automation. To turn prospects into buyers, a new online store was needed. Purchase-encouraging features such as watch lists, 360-degree animations and the possibility to reserve products in stores were used to boost sales in the ZGONC webshop.
