E-Commerce In A Hurry
A century-old retailer takes its outlet stores online in just four-and-a-half months, then watches e-commerce boom.
To be successful in omni-channel commerce, companies of all sizes can no longer rely on legacy siloed or homegrown business applications. With the unprecedented amount of data gathered at different points in the organization that needs to be shared across functions, efficient workflows are simply not possible when operating a patchwork of siloed point solutions and legacy applications.

Founded in 2004, SoccerPro sells soccer performance gear and licensed apparel throughout the U.S and abroad.

Goode Company, a Houston TX-based restaurant chain and online retailer sells the finest line of prepared food, apparel, books, gifts and “cookin’ tools.” The company needed an end-to-end ecommerce platform that could meet its unique industry requirements.

Founded in 2000, family-owned Wholesale Accessory Market (eWam) started in a one-car garage and has become one of the nation’s largest fashion accessory wholesaler and retailers. It now offers over 50,000 products and continues to grow its SKUs. Their primary customer base is fashion boutiques and salons, as well as self-employed independent distributors. With a holiday season that begins in September, eWam needed to improve its ecommerce capabilities and shore up its back- end processes to keep pace with growth rates.
