BACKGROUND

B2B customer portal makes preorder and reorder easier

Being a global player, Fenix Outdoor have many brands-reseller relationships to nurture and administrate. They therefore wanted make this process smoother and more efficient for both themselves and the resellers. The solution was to build a B2B customer portal where both internal and external resellers easily could do both reorder and preorder of their assortment. Since current solution were outdated, it had to be replaced rapidly. They had an aggressive time plan to launch this new application, but suffered from data being scattered in many different systems which would be a major hurdle in the time plan. Occtoo became the obvious choice to use to unify data from many different sources and combine it to be able to infuse relevance in the experience. When a reseller logs into the portal the experience is tailored to their specific profile and they only see part of the assortment and brands that are relevant to them. They can also change their own profile so their information is always up to date.
