Launching Easy Online Buying

(With One Vendor Managing Ecommerce, Top to Bottom)

 
In late 2008, Blount International, Inc. was feeling the pressure from all sides. Everyone involved wanted to “get online” with an e-commerce solution.

Key distributors wanted it.  Dealers wanted it.  Division managers wanted it.

The problem: Blount couldn’t increase the burden on its in-house IT staff.

Barry Brunetto, Blount’s VP of Information Systems, was tasked with solving the problem.  But, his early research uncovered solutions that were too expensive, too hard to customize, and too slow to implement.

Then he learned about Corevist Commerce, our managed web channel solution for manufacturers running SAP.  Less than six months later, Blount was processing orders online — and those orders were completely integrated with SAP in real time.

Highlights:

  • Blount was processing online orders directly into their SAP system within 90 days of signing a contract with Corevist
  • Multiple managers, from multiple departments, and countries came together so quickly
  • Efficiency, and revenue, have increased as a result of this solution
  • EDI fits into this picture
