"With our main concern being customization and needing a complete solution to improve our website functionalities, we were very happy to have worked with the expertise of the Klizer team. Klizer provided migration to Magento 2 along with detailed customization for our specific needs, as well as various new functionalities to help support our growth."
Director Of Information Technology, Midland Scientific
Initially, Midland Scientific was operating with a B2B e-commerce platform- B2B seller by ECC. It consisted of around 20 percent of the user base online. With 400K products in its inventory, created in P21 and PIM, and all of them published on their B2B eCommerce platform. They have done many customizations on B2B Seller functionalities over the years, yet they did not get the desired results with their Search function – since users found it difficult to find the required product with specific attributes in it. Additionally, the speed and accuracy of the site were not up to the mark either.
And when it comes to Data Integration, there were not many code customization options in their earlier site that acted as a barricade to business growth and prevented from implementing certain growth strategies.
DCKAP’s certified Magento developers and designers initiated the design and development stage. We formulated a brand new optimized website with an enhanced user experience to fulfill the expectations of the customers. The design stage also involved an intricate process to provide a fully customizable Magento site to meet the ever-evolving necessities of the end-users.
Midland Scientific chose Magento 2 which supports their B2B features like Company Structure, Quick Order Placing, Multiple Checkout Processes, Account Management, Promotion.
From the technical perspective, our developers assured improvements such as valid codes that comply with current web standards, improved functionality, and wider accessibility for the customers.

The Products Information that is stored in Akeneo was imported to Magento using the PIMgento extension. Products are classified into two product types; namely Parent Product & Child Product. Child products are managed as normal products in Akeneo and Parent products are created as separate entities. Additionally, the Child products are mapped to the Parent product to ensure efficient categorization.
The Parent products were termed as grouped products in Magento and Child products were listed as ‘Simple products’. Simple products can be mapped to grouped products and imported to Magento 2 through PIMgento. DCKAP also set up Cron Jobs to synchronize all the products from Akeneo to Magento 2 on a daily basis.
DCKAP also added brands and created them as entities in Akeneo which are imported to Magento through a separate API. It involves transferring brands and brand images through it. A Cron Job is set up to synchronize all the brands from Akeneo to Magento 2 on a daily basis.
The website is now integrated with an advantage in creating and managing the categories for all available products. This solution enables the store owner to import or export the product data from the local storage files with just a single click.
The Midland Scientific website is now equipped with a completely transitioned Magento 2 store with power-packed integrations & customizable features to delight their customers. The challenges Klizer faced during this project, including enabling the integration between Magento 2x with Epicor P21, were extensive. Yet, Klizer’s strong technical team was keenly able to hurdle through with their expertise.
