Intersport jump

LINK Mobility Sweden, (subsidiary to LINK Mobility Group), Europe’s leading mobile message and mobile services provider takes over all messaging for INTERSPORT (Sweden), the world’s largest retail sports chain.

INTERSPORT’S vision is that the Swedes will become the most active citizens in the world and their mission is to inspire more people towards an active lifestyle. The company has a wide range of sports equipment and a large retail network in Sweden with approximately 147 stores as well as e-commerce.

LINK Mobility is taking over INTERSPORT Sweden’s SMS distribution for the Click & Collect service, as well as marketing messaging for customer through our partner Lindbak Retail System’s operating solution.  Click & Collect entails an SMS-message to the customer when an internet-ordered product is available for pick-up at a given store.

“We are investing in LINK Mobility as a partner, which will become an important puzzle piece in our omni-platform. Together we will improve the shopping experience for our customers”, says Pontus Petersson, CFO INTERSPORT Sweden.

“There has been a quick implementation which simplifies the process for INTERSPORT’S customers and creates a satisfying shopping experience where e-commerce and stores are merged. Based on LINK Mobility’s services, customer communication is handled quickly and efficiently”, says Christine Bergqvist, CEO of Lindbak Retail Systems AB.

“It is very pleasing that we can help deliver services and quality to yet another customer. We look forward to continued cooperation with both INTERSPORT and Linkbak”, says Ola Schröder, Manager Partner Sales at  LINK Mobility Sweden.
