  • During our partnership, Forbytes have facilitated positive technological changes for our client-partner. Everything from system migration to a new e-commerce software platform to the integration of a loyalty program.

Our client

Gymgrossisten is one of the world’s largest e-commerce companies that works with training supplements and sports products.

From being a small retailer, Gymgrossisten grew into a big enterprise and have become a leader in the Nordic region with stores in Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Denmark.

Veckans Affärer, a local business magazine, has named Gymgrossisten one of Sweden’s most successful companies several times.

“Forbytes has done a very good job recruiting our resources. We’re a very picky group, but we’ve been given some excellent profiles. I wouldn’t have been able to find the same level of developers in Stockholm.”

“Forbytes provides consistent results within a collaborative relationship working with internal consultants to fix bugs and develop and integrate new functions and systems. They efficiently manage the remote engagement with Jira and Confluence and recruit highly skilled and experienced developers.”

How we are working together

Every week, our dedicated team implements between one to three releases to improve the customer’s e-commerce system and to help the business grow.

Forbytes started its partnership with Gymgrossisten by selecting a dedicated team that met all their requirements. We make sure that every specialist we suggest to our client-partner is a team player with a high level of technical skills and aspiration to bring value through their work. Four years of building on, and maintaining, this successful partnership show we have been making the right choices.

Working with Gymgrossisten began with a migration to the new industry strandard platform with the aim to upgrade an out-dated e-commerce software. This decision made the platform more flexible and provided opportunities for further expansion. Today, Gymgrossisten’s platform is a base for 10 online shops in four countries: Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Denmark.

These are some of the capabilities we
have helped improve for our client-partner

Forbytes’ developers launched a loyalty program that required deep integration with a system that takes into account all types of discounts, categories of users, and existing varieties of goods;

We integrated the Kibana data visualisation plugin which allows the showing of large volumes of data in bars, lines, pie charts, and maps. The plugin can be used as a business analytical tool as well as a tool for analysing the whole system;

We implemented a tool for Affiliate marketing (a performance-based marketing tool) that helps our client-partner with their business development process;

We continue to provide tech support and improvements to the platform’s mobile application and are currently working on improving mobile payments;

Our team integrated Google Tag Manager (a tag management system that is used to gather better website analytics including AdWords Conversion Tracking, GDN Remarketing, Custom HTML Tags, and other tag templates) into the platform;

Forbytes’ developers adapted the platform to GDPR requirements. Users can feel safe in knowing that they have full control over how their personal information is treated. They can get full access to their data, print it, delete or anonymise all their personal information.
