Global Registration Services, Inc. helps manufacturers, importers, distributors, wholesalers and retailers of bedding & furniture articles obtain state law label licenses as well as the formulation and printing of the labels. Customers include Wal-Mart, Target, Home Decorators Collection, Ikea and Pier 1 Imports.
The challenge: Both external customers and internal managers required a way to login to a secure system for order entry, process orders and manage licenses. Without licenses, the retailers are unable to sell state regulated products, so time is of the essence.
The solution: Together Magenium Solutions and the customer agreed on a custom developed website with full eCommerce capability. First, Magenium converted an existing database through a .net application. Then a Drupal site was developed, using visualstudio.net. Now customers and internal staff are able to logon securely for order entry, filling out all forms and managing law label licenses. PDFs are generated on the fly automatically, along with each order entry. Credit card processing is fully integrated for easy payment. Magenium hosts the website through Microsoft Azure, and monitors status in real time every hour to fix or enhance any incident to ensure minimum downtime.
“We’ve seen a significant increase in our order entry efficiency. We expected to see a cost savings, but had no idea just how significant it would be. Magenium’s ‘agile methodology’ approach to the entire project made it virtually painless.”
