Lippo Group Selects aCommerce to Drive its $1BN Ecommerce Venture
aCommerce has been selected to drive ecommerce fulfillment, online marketing and is selected for exclusive consulting services to help build the venture’s in-house operations.
With its recent US$500 million investment to build the biggest ecommerce venture in Indonesia, Lippo Group has selected aCommerce to fast-track the roll-out of its new mega ecommerce site MatahariMall.
aCommerce Indonesia’s two CEOs, Hadi Wenas and Adrian Suherman, are spearheading this project as their past experience building successful ecommerce businesses in Indonesia gives Lippo Group confidence. Wenas was a former McKinsey & Co Engagement Manager and Founder & MD of Zalora Indonesia while Suherman was MD of Living Social Indonesia and VP of Indonesia’s largest telco, Telkomsel. Their goal is to create the largest and most complete marketplace, offering the best deals and largest variety of products, covering fashion, beauty, electronics, home, groceries, books, and entertainment to everyone. MatahariMall.com brings exclusivity as it has been appointed the chosen online retailer for the most popular brands in Indonesia, like Nevada, Icon, etc.
“aCommerce brings speed, practicality, tailored services, teamwork, and can-do attitude to accelerate our go-to-market.”
– John Riady, Executive Director of Lippo Group
“We believe Matahari is the only ecommerce player who can truly leverage the O2O (online-to-offline) process. Nobody has been able to replicate it for quite some time. While ecommerce is not new to the region, what’s unique here is the massive offline presence that Lippo Group has. With around 60% of Indonesians still shopping offline, MatahariMall will forge the bridge needed to truly shift consumer behavior.”
– Adrian Suherman, aCommerce Indonesia co-CEO
MatahariMall is the first and only O2O retailer in Southeast Asia, allowing customers to pay, collect and return their goods in all 138 Matahari department stores across Indonesia.
