Plus, get an inside look at how three distributors successfully replatformed to get more out of ecommerce.
Our previous system was just an access point to our ERP. It didn't make sense to our customers. They were signing up but then never using the site. They were telling us they had needs that the current solution couldn't meet. We needed a solution that was for the customer; an outside-in view, if you will.

With no SEO built into our previous website, customers were not able to find us unless we created a direct shortcut to the website for them. If we measure our success with Insite on how we have made our clients' lives easier to procure parts, I think we've succeeded on a massive scale.

The flexibility with the Episerver platform versus the Infor platform, which was the storefront we were on previously, allows us to do ecommerce the way we want to do business. We don't have to conform to someone else's rigid box.
