GE MCS

An operating division of one of the world’s largest diversified conglomerates, GE Measurement & Control Services (GE-MCS) is an innovator in providing measurement and monitoring solutions to a wide range of industries.

Challenge

GE-MCS partnered with Gorilla to build a secure, transactional customer portal on a global scale to deliver measurable results to their business.

Approach

The first order of business was to build the transactional B2B portal to meet the stringent security and branding standards of GE-MCS. Combined with Magento Enterprise’s multi-site capabilities, this allowed GE-MCS to grant access to only authorized users, who are directed to a geographically appropriate site upon login. This enabled a range of customer segmentation features, from allowing transactions in multiple currencies, to providing each GE-MCS customer with its own unique price list and discounting rules managed from within a single product catalog. We also created a custom tiered account hierarchy within Magento that allowed top-level customers to place orders for themselves, or to place (and ship) orders directly to their customers, facilitating B2B2B commerce. All of which was completed in a mere 9 weeks.

Outcome

  • Secure, branded non-public facing portal
  • Custom Magento Enterprise implementation
  • Oracle ERP integration (customers, pricing, orders)
  • Multi-site, multi-currency capabilities
