Management & Staff

Collectively our team has over 150 years experience connecting SAP® to the web.

The founders of Corevist have been delivering successful b2b projects for more than a decade. Collectively, we have helped more than 80 organizations make the leap to web-based ordering.

eCommerce projects for b2b require the collaboration of three key groups of stakeholders: business users, experts in SAP® solutions, and web technology experts. At Corevist, we understand that sometimes this is the first time all three of these departments engage together to deliver a project. Our team and our agile approach facilitates this change while we work across the organization to deliver a successful system that satisfies the needs of all stakeholders.
