Being a complete oilfield supplier & service center, Howard Supply’s revenue fluctuates based on oil pricing. Their revenue is high when the oil price is high. With oil prices hitting their low in recent times, they decided to diversify their market by venturing into new areas. They realized that moving online and selling their products through an eCommerce website would add value to this cause.
HSC’s requirement was to build a website with a familiar user experience that the customer would be comfortable with. They wanted to partner with someone who could assist them in getting the desired result. Klizer helped them in pursuing their goal by developing an ecommerce website using Magento 2 with Epicor P21, which met the expectations of the customer.
Refreshing online experience and having a good web design are vital for any B2B business, as it helps boost revenue, improve search rankings, and reduce bounce rates. Our goal was to let the website define the brand at its best. The overall UX experience was enhanced. Keeping the client’s requirements in mind, a market-themed website was created. Klizer’s ultimate focus was to:
