At ASM Web Services we are determined to apply that of a new year, new life. During 2018 a transformation has been taking place that will culminate in 2019 and that will mean a turn in the company’s strategy. We will do so coinciding with the fifteenth anniversary of our foundation. This process of change is nothing more than a response through innovation to the challenges that customers have been posing us. It is possible that among the gifts this Christmas you have received a Google Home or Amazon Alexa, the virtual assistants controlled by voice that work based on artificial intelligence (AI), right? This is what we mean when we talk about new challenges. In 2018 artificial intelligence has hit hard and has taken a large part of the prominence in the technological world. More and more businesses have opted for integrating these types of advanced technologies that allow machines to understand, act and learn.
“Elementary my dear Watson…”
At ASM Web Services we have incorporated the IBM Watson artificial intelligence solution to our service catalog. Seeing what the market demands, the decision was elementary – “My dear Watson,” Sherlock Holmes would point out. The IBM Watson platform is capable of making intelligent decisions by analyzing millions of data in real time and constantly learning. In addition, IBM cognitive technology, among other things, automates customer service services and guides you through the purchase process by recommending products or services based on your interests.
2018 has been a year to further strengthen ties with IBM.
The North American giant has recognized our trajectory and quality offering technological solutions, granting us the Gold Business Partner qualification. The recognition is part of the IBM PartnerWorld program, IBM’s premier partner program that gives partners access to tools and resources to help transform clients into leaders in their industry.
And also with Akeneo
We have also strengthened ties with Akeneo. Rodrigo Pais Garay – our eCommerce functional consultant – has obtained the official certification as Akeneo Implementation Specialist.
This one, along with the one he had achieved months ago as a Magento Certified Solution Specialist, makes him the first consultant in the entire state to have this dual certification. Centralized product information. I fact, during the month of October we started the implementation of Akeneo PIM Enterprise Edition for Roca. With this incorporation, the sanitary company will centralize all the product information in the catalog of all its brands worldwide.
With this project we further strengthen this strategic line of business.
Codorníu’s new ‘eCommerce’
One of the most important wineries in Spain, Codorníu, has decided to give new impetus to its online sales with the launch of the new eCommerce. Our team has worked for months on the development of this online store managed with Magento 2.0, one of the most popular and effective e-commerce platforms in the world.
Codorníu’s new online store includes customization functions that users can apply to their orders during the purchase process.
For example, in the Anna de Codorníu product line they can select different bottle designs and include personalized messages on the label, which they write while making the online purchase.
Do you know what a television platform for virtual PayTV operators is?
Explained in a very simplified way, it is a platform that allows local fiber operators to combine the content of online series and movie platforms such as Netflix with their fixed, mobile and internet offer.
Also the soccer matches of beIN Sports and other digital channels such as Fox, Syfy or AXN. Throughout 2018 ASM Web Services has been a technological partner of a new platform of this type, TVUp.
There are projects of which we are proud, not only for the final result but also for what their creation can contribute to society. The weSAVEeat eCommerce is one of them.
The UN CC: Learn association, linked to the United Nations (UN), has included weSAVEeat in a selection of six apps from around the world that contribute to change the way we buy food. The post highlights the savings in food that can be achieved using this mobile application, developed by ASMWS. UN CC: Learn is a partnership of more than 30 multilateral organizations that support countries to design and implement training strategies on climate change that are systematic, recurrent and results-oriented.
The year that we have just said goodbye has helped us to grow outside of Catalonia. We have opened new offices in León, located in the Center for Technology-Based Companies (CEBT), very close to the popular MUSAC, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Castilla y León. Hand in hand with the new facilities has come an expansion of the team with the incorporation of Mario Coello and Jesús Martínez. Both will work in the area dedicated to the development of projects with the Scala programming language. From ASM Web Services we wish you a happy and successful 2019.
