Why eCommerce?

Johnathan Wolf, Owner at Tool Centre:

“Tool Centre has been on the forefront of B2B eCommerce for many years, being one of the first companies to offer a B2B Portal to our customers. At Tool Centre we believe in excellent customer service and this is extended through our portal offering to our customers. With the implementation of Magento we also want to expand into B2C.”

Why did you choose Vaimo?

“Vaimo works very closely together with Sage. We experienced lots of problems with our previous ERP system & service pro- vider. Vaimo was able to offer both ERP and strong eCommerce with full integration between these two best of breed systems. I believe Vaimo is one of the few companies that understand both eCommerce and ERP.”

Why did you choose Magento?

“I am convinced that using the right platform is what drives business in the eCommerce space. We had other portals in the past with what we had major problems during upgrades. The many features offered by Magento for both our B2B and B2C channels are what convinced us of going with Magento.”
