Positioned as Leader in Digital Commerce

By supporting their commerce operations on a single platform, Halco Technologies now offers a best-in-class shopping experience through a unified B2B eCommerce and Customer Self-Service website on the Adobe Commerce Cloud platform.

 

In order to meet the complex commerce requirements for both B2C and multi-business/B2B customers, a solution that provided a streamlined experience with personalization was required. Adobe Commerce Cloud provides a robust foundation for multi-business and B2B customers. Both customers and internal teams are now able to overcome previous challenges with the consolidation of the Halco, Sollos, and J&J Electronics brands into a single website. Echidna implemented many out-of-the-box capabilities and developed additional custom tools to proactively give customers the ability to shop online and manage their accounts even easier.


With this move to Adobe Commerce Cloud and the launch of their new digital channel, Halco gains the ability to continually delight their customers with new conveniences, grow and create new business opportunities, and set the pace of innovation for competitors to match going forward.
