Stephan Schambach has been changing the commerce world since 1992. From founding Intershop and building the first standard software for online shopping, to putting retail in the cloud with the founding of Demandware (which was acquired by Salesforce for $2.8 billion dollars), Schambach has seen it all in retail. He put pen to paper in 2017 to share his vision for the next phase of retail, publishing his first book: Makeover: How Mobile Flipped the Shopping Cart. Makeover outlines the web of retail relationships with lessons and tactical next steps for retailers to adapt and thrive in the mobile age.
The visionary who brought the retail industry online shopping and cloud service solutions is laying the foundation for the future of digitally-influenced retail. It starts with physical stores and the technology both customers and store associates know and love.
With NewStore, Schambach has built an Omnichannel-as-a-Service platform that allows brands to run their retail stores on iPhones. Intuitive apps turn store associates into a point of sale, living website, and instant customer support, enabling them to deliver the seamless experiences today’s mobile-first shoppers demand.
