MEGA eG was founded in Hamburg in 1901. Today, the cooperative has over 1,700 employees and generates sales of around 400 million euros at 125 locations throughout Germany. Stationary trade has always formed the core of the business, which has been supplemented by an online store - an SAP Commerce System - since 2017.
The company used a proprietary image database to organize product images. However, even basic information about the stored images was unclear or inconsistent, such as their resolution, origin or usage rights. With the launch of the online store it also quickly became evident that maintaining the product information was more complex than expected. As the existing image database was unsuitable for seamless, efficient collaboration with the online store, MEGA eG began searching for a powerful DAM system and found its solution in censhare.
