Trio Technology developed and support the Magento installation for an Australasian promotional products distributor. Magento was chosen for full e-commerce capabilities and flexibility within an Open Source model.
For this company, we connect to their back-end ERP systems to deliver products, images,meta data and pricing and stock levels to Magento overnight. Their system is Access based so we connect to MS Access using a custom coded application written by Trio. Their requirements were extensive in that there are many levels of pricing depending on customer type, stock level and quantity ordered. All price displays and web orders need to be accurate especially when some orders are over $10k.
The system was created 2 years ago and continues to grow and upgrade with the business with new financial features planned. Shipping is also a key area we work on for this customer as when you are shipping 10 or 10,000 custom printed USB sticks, shipping costs matter and like pricing, need to be accurate.
