The convenience of online shopping
With its virtual Internet marketplaces and download portals, Telekom offers a wide range of products and convenient options for online shopping, anytime, anywhere.
The Group is positioning itself as a partner for the distribution of digital media through its PagePlace online kiosk. The media landscape is experiencing radical changes. The increasing spread of the Internet into all areas of life is also boosting customer demand for innovative, multimedia content. Up until now, customers have had to plough their way through the awkward Internet pages of various magazines and publishers in order to find the digital media they were looking for.
Extensive offering and great convenience
With PagePlace - an online kiosk and library in one - Telekom has created a one-stop shop for digital newspapers, magazines and books. After making a purchase on www.pageplace.de, users' content is immediately available on their personal, virtual bookshelf and they can read it using various devices such as a computer, tablet PC or smartphone. If the user sets a bookmark or marks a place in the text, these are preserved across all the devices on which PagePlace is installed. Mobile users can access their online libraries anytime, anywhere and enjoy the benefits of an extensive offering and greater convenience.
A long reach and technical expertise
The media sector also has advantages: Telekom is helping manufacturers and publishers achieve digitization and supporting new business models with the first, and so far only, manufacturer- and publisher-independent platform. Besides Telekom's technical expertise, publishers also benefit from its long reach and retain full marketing rights in respect of their content.
Shopping made easier
Shopping is also made easier in Telekom's other virtual marketplaces: the "Load" family - four Internet portals (Musicload, Gamesload, Videoload and Softwareload) offers entertaining and useful content and it is child's play to download content from the web. In Telekom's online marketplaces - ImmobilienScout24, AutoScout24, FriendScout24 and FinanceScout24 - users can browse through an extensive choice of cars, homes, friends or financial services. A search system helps them find what they are looking for in just seconds - either from home using a computer or on the go using an iPhone.
