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.” eCommerce Director of the client.

The KPMG Crimsonwing eBusiness team has replaced the client’s 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 them to react faster to their customers and market’s needs. The solution includes a tightly coupled integration to the organisation’s line of business systems, and has been designed to support both the end-consumer and dedicated account customers that they service.
