4x4 Accessories & Tyres is the UK's largest 4x4 accessory centre, based in Leeming Bar, North Yorkshire. Running B2B & B2C operations, they urgently needed to replace their legacy ERP system and Sage accounts integration, plus introduce six new B2B/B2C websites with integrations for eBay and Amazon sales channels.
With product data, customer and sales order information originating across a soon to expire ERP, accounting and ecommerce infrastructure, 4x4 Accessories Ltd engaged Netmatter to assist with overall solution decisions, and also to provide the ecommerce development and ERP integrations for the new B2B and B2C websites.
The new business solution needed to streamline central operations and offer a single data source though a new ERP system that also provided efficiency in a number of areas including warehouse management, sales channel integration, inventory visibility and business reporting.
Six pre-existing B2B and B2C websites that provided the business with retail and direct B2B vehicle main dealership sales needed to be redesigned and developed for mobile, tablet and desktop devices using a new Ecommerce platform. All six required unique functionality while being able to be managed from one system and also fully integrated with the chosen ERP to ensure inventory, prices, customers and order data was automatically synchronised.
A key factor of the project was to ensure the new solution provided flexibility to support future business workflows within integrations and also scalable to optimise the growth of current and future commerce operations. Product data, price lists, credit limits and sales order information needed to synchronise across multiple sales channels and ecommerce websites in near real time to ensure data integrity and accuracy of stock.
