Background

The e-book market was practically non-existent in Sweden when KF Media, one of the largest booksellers in the country, decided to change the situation. They set out to establish the leading Swedish e-book service through their chain of Akademibokhandeln retail stores and Bokus online store.

What we did

Doberman helped KF Media innovate and design their offer. Working in close collaboration, we began by customer journey-mapping both physical and digital interactions to identify key opportunities for how to deliver an excellent service experience. Doberman designed the brand “Dito” and a complete integrated service ecosystem consisting of an online bookstore, and intuitive e-book apps for tablets and smart phones. Doberman also supported KF Media’s staff education program in rolling out the service to stores nationwide.

Result

Dito’s launch, conceived and developed by Doberman, was met by strong media interest at the national book fair in Gothenburg. Dito has defined a new stage for e-books in Sweden and disrupted the market—the launch instantly established Akademibokhandeln and Bokus as Sweden’s largest e-book retailers.
