QUEBEC CITY, QC--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2014) - IT professional services provider OSF Global Services announced today the successful delivery and launch of a new digital webstore for Openyard.com. Based on the powerful Magento Enterprise Edition ecommerce platform, the solution enables Openyard to leverage their technology investment to drive online revenue and engage with customers across multiple channels.
Openyard was founded on in-house solutions that provided the functionality to successfully get their initial webstore up and running, but eventually the in-house development cycles became less of an advantage and more of a distraction from their core business model. OSF provided the tools and expertise to help Openyard shift from 100% dependency on custom solutions to best- in-class industry solutions that aligned seamlessly with their technical background.
The robust and scalable Magento Enterprise Edition® serves as the hub for the sporting equipment retailer's ecommerce operations, with extensions and third-party applications providing additional custom functionality for the fast-growing New Hampshire-based company. Resources from OSF and Openyard collaborated extensively to bring the solution to life, closely monitoring development schedules and performing rigorous testing along the way.
"Overall we had a great experience with OSF developers, designers and project managers. They helped us realize our ecommerce vision and put the tools in place to make that vision a reality," said Justin Pfister, President of Openyard.com. "They were able to implement and produce IT assets, solve complex challenges, and they never broke away from best practices. Collectively, our OSF team possessed an impressive array of knowledge and I never felt like our problems were outside of their scope. I really look forward to working with OSF on future projects."
Magento Enterprise Edition offers Openyard a scalable platform that comes loaded with out-of-the-box features. Combined with OSF's integration ability and experience with multichannel optimization, the solution gives Openyard the tools to compete in today's digital environment.
"It's always a pleasure to work with a local company," said Christopher Hooven, SVP Sales & Business Development, OSF Global Services. "We immediately understood their vision and were able to recommend extensions and integrations that will scale as their operations grow. We are very excited about the future of this partnership and look forward to adding more features and functionality down the road."
