Data-Systems is a family-owned electronics company founded in 1993. Initially, the company’s activity focused on memory products, but soon expanded to cover almost all IT product domains.
The company’s business idea consists in offering e-commerce services through a sophisticated online store.

Completely New Online Store Development Version
The first Data-Systems electronic store opened its doors in 1996. Since then, the company’s website has been developed actively and proceeding from the customer’s point of view. In spring 2013, the third (and completely new) version of the online store designed and tailored by Mediasignal was released.
The service architecture was designed to operate in a largely automated manner, allowing professional control over a huge number of product items. The ordering data for products sold are retrieved automatically from five different suppliers, complete with entry of product-specific information and inventory balance into the database. Product images and descriptions are retrieved based on product number once a day.
“The wide and logically planned service format ensures convenient purchasing and quick delivery – we are capable of delivering more than 90% of the products ordered on the next workday.”
When the customer accesses the website and purchases goods, this is logged as an order under the payment service, which in turn is logged as an event under the ERP system and delivery logistics.
To support the operation of the automatic online store, three product configurators assist the customers in choosing the right memory, cables, and spare parts, for example.
Currently, the product range covers over 200,000 products, thus being one of the largest in Finland. Data-Systems represents many brands relatively uncommon in Finland.
