Arizona Fireplaces encountered significant challenges in their pursuit of establishing a successful e-commerce platform. The need to reach customers who couldn’t physically visit their showroom, along with limited space to showcase their extensive product catalogue, drove them to explore online solutions. Initially, they attempted to create an e-commerce solution using WordPress, but the venture proved to be a failure . This is because this third-party platform they relied on for showcasing their fireplaces resembled an eBay-like web store. Resulting in minimal customer responses and a confusing user experience.
The primary reason for their failure lay in the lack of integration and support from the WordPress platform itself. Employees struggled with inaccurate data and encountered issues from an accounting standpoint. Orders were placed, but there was no follow-up or proper communication with customers. These internal pain points further compounded the challenges, leaving the team overwhelmed and exhausted. The prospect of maintaining multiple platforms and constantly updating inventory proved to be an inefficient and time-consuming endeavor.
Arizona Fireplaces explored alternative options such as Shopify, Magento, and custom integrations into their existing systems. However, none of these solutions provided the tightly integrated infrastructure they needed. Crucially, they required a platform that seamlessly integrated with their ERP system, SAP Business One, to ensure accurate inventory management and streamline accounting processes. The quest for an e-commerce solution that could effectively support their unique inventory requirements and integrate with their existing systems seemed almost impossible.
The reason we failed was the lack of integration and support from the platform itself. It just created a tremendous nightmare for our employees.Greg Lewis, Director of IT, Arizona Fireplaces
