BACKGROUND

B2B customer portal makes preorder and reorder easier

As a global business, Fenix Outdoor have multiple brand-reseller relationships to nurture and administrate, and they wanted to make the 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 could easily reorder and preorder from their assortment. Since the current solution was outdated, it had to be replaced rapidly. They had an aggressive time plan to launch this new application, but were hindered by data being scattered in many different systems, which would be a major hurdle in the time plan. Occtoo became the obvious choice to unify and combine the data 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 the assortment and brands that are relevant to them. They can also change their own profile so their information is always up to date.
