KPMG Crimsonwing implements Magento enterprise eCommerce solution for leading packaging product distributor

The international eCommerce specialist, KPMG Crimsonwing, is pleased to announce that the new site for a leading packaging product distributor is now live, and has been running smoothly since it was first launched on the 29th November 2010.

The leading packaging product distributor is listed on the UK stock exchange and services the UK and European market places. The company provides a full packaging solution to its customers, both producing and distributing packaging and labels to customers across a wide range of industry sectors.

Coming from a custom built static site, we were eager to partner with a flexible and progressive solution. Having benchmarked a number of products and service providers, we were excited to introduce and integrate both KPMG Crimsonwing and Magento Enterprise as our strategic solution of choice for our eBusiness going forward.” the company’s eCommerce Director explains.

The KPMG Crimsonwing eBusiness team has replaced their previous online eCommerce store, which was a custom built and maintained solution, with the Magento Enterprise Edition. The new solution offers a fresh design and enhanced Web 2.0 features, such as layered navigation, single page checkout and rich customer facing functionality, and will enable the client to react faster to their customers and market’s needs. The solution includes a tightly coupled integration to their line of business systems, and has been designed to support both the end-consumer and dedicated account customers that the client services. The solution includes customer specific pricing, real-time order injection, and advanced customer service via live chat and call back functions.

David Simonds, KPMG Crimsonwing’s Project Manager, said: “By using a combination of Magento Enterprise Edition and KPMG Crimsonwing, our client gains access to an extremely cost-effective business solution. Magento Enterprise and its partner network offer a vast array of standard functionality, meaning the client can react quickly to its customers’ needs. KPMG Crimsonwing, with over 10 years of eBusiness experience, provide a wealth of expertise in eCommerce solutions, specialising in projects requiring complex integrations. The new Magento based store will offer an extremely flexible online solution to our client for years to come.”
