Stateside Skates take their B2B ecommerce to the next level with tradeit
Stateside Skates are an award-winning, worldwide distributor of extreme sports products and one of the most influential forces in the action sports industry, with over 40 years of expertise.
Having traded online for a while, they wanted a new platform that was inherently designed for B2B ecommerce and opened up a whole set of features with distributors and wholesalers in mind. Tools like pre-ordering, saved baskets, quick order forms, back orders, order approval (so orders can be raised by staff but then only approved by a master user), stock notifications, call centre (so staff can place orders on a customer's behalf, including private products that are hidden from their view) and much more.
Another key element of the project was the integration between the new site and their Prima ERP system. This enabled the two-way flow of information such as orders, order history, order details, companies, pricing and stock, using both web services (for real-time updates) and XML.
“We’ve had some good feedback on the site, even on day 1 of the welcome user mailout. Thank you for your efforts pulling the site together and making it what it is.”
