When a retail chain of farm, industrial, and garage tools and equipment needed to modernize their eCommerce technology, they looked to Object Edge. In a complex, multiyear project, Object Edge led the move from the on-premise Oracle Commerce (ATG) to Oracle CX Commerce (OCC). This complex project was a success through a collaborative partnership with the retailer, Oracle, and Object Edge.
In order to modernize and prepare for a digital future, the team selected Oracle CX Commerce (OCC) to help with these pain points. With years of customization and features, Object Edge needed to build a similar-looking site, but with more modern technical architecture and improved user experience. All with the goal of easing pain points and reducing the total cost of ownership for the retailer.
An established retail chain specializing in farm and auto parts items was ready for digital transformation. Their challenge was an eCommerce platform that was a legacy, on-premise platform (Oracle ATG) with costs and challenges to their day-to-day practices. They struggled with:
- UI/interface changes were time consuming
- Catalog loads were time-consuming (taking three days)
- Stability issues with ATG
- Setup had three nodes, and sometimes when one node is down, the entire system needed to be reset
- Cost of ownership for a legacy, on-premise platform
This was an extensive project for an omnichannel business with over 50 retail locations, a huge catalog, and a large, loyal customer base. The eCommerce site was designed primarily for B2C, but also includes some B2B features for smaller contractors, farmers, and businesses.
