Markus Fost and the FOSTEC team played a key role in the development of a global e-commerce strategy for our fine dining division. In particular, the experience FOSTEC brought to the table was invaluable in enabling us to achieve our objective in a very short period of time. The strategic approaches pursued were capable of meeting the requirements of a traditional, globally operating company with a strong brand image as well as accommodating changing market requirements and the digital transformation of business models. From the strategic concept to the operational planning of measures and business plans, we always felt very well advised and confident of being able to pursue a successful path in the future.
Dr. Peter Domma, Head of Online Unit of Villeroy & Boch AG
Markus Fost advised us on the development and implementation of our global e-commerce strategy in a highly dedicated fashion. This guidance covered the construction of our new website, the design and construction of a B2B portal, the modernisation of our data management practices and other strategic measures such as the development of a detailed scoring model for cooperation with pure players. Taking into account the needs of a brand-name manufacturer with a high degree of involvement in specialist trade, Markus made significant improvements to the firm’s e-commerce strategy, held discussions with various visions of the firm and, where necessary, devising problem-solving approaches. He then implemented our chosen strategy in a consistent, target-oriented manner, offering expert guidance to the relevant operational divisions. Our considerable success was achieved only as a result of FOSTEC’s detailed technical and strategic know-how and their deep understanding of the opportunities and risks of different e-commerce strategies. Markus exhibited the highest levels of commitment at all times, integrated the various divisions in a transparent and goal-driven manner and solved emerging problems quickly thanks to his in-depth technical understanding. As a result, he was able to consistently set appropriate priorities for our complex projects.
