Bokklubben - The Norwegian Book Club
Simplicity is an important factor for Bokklubben when they communicate with their customers, and the main reason why they considered a SMS solution.
De norske Bokklubbene (The Norwegian Book Club) is a book club for both children and adults and have been running for over 50 years. Their main distribution channels are the online shops bokklubben.no and bokkilden.no.
Simplicity is an important factor for Bokklubben when they communicate with their customers, and the main reason why they considered a SMS solution. Datek was assigned the task of developing a web platform that would allow customers to be both notified and able to cancel their “book of the month” subscriptions.
Bokklubben’s solution consists of two parts. Datek has delivered CPAS, which is a standard product for sending and receiving sms messages to most of the mobile operators and mobile aggregators. The second part of the solution is a customized web application adapted Bokklubben’s needs.
