Strategic Planning – Envisa We enable success. Wed, 28 Sep 2016 18:02:43 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Work ‘N Gear Implements New ERP Solution Thu, 12 May 2016 15:58:27 +0000

Work ‘N Gear was looking to support its growing business model by migrating from distinct, outdated ERP and point-of-sale systems and an outsourced e-commerce solution to a new integrated ERP platform.  With full conversion of over ten years of business data and successful implementation of a seemless end-to-end solution, Work ‘N Gear has been able to greatly improve flexibility and service for customers, employees and partners.

The Envisa Solution

After the initial pilot, Work ‘N Gear turned to Envisa to lead the project, including data conversion, e-commerce customization, custom electronic data interface development, testing, end-user training and deployment.  The result?  A custom ERP solution connecting Work ‘N Gear online, physical stores and partners.

The Results

Standardized Data and Improved Access to Information

Envisa successfully mined, cleaned and converted ten years’ of business data, including customer information, product data and inventory, which laid the foundation for both the ERP conversion and future business analytic solutions. Work ‘N Gear reported improved employee, customer and partner satisfaction because of the new, integrated access to e-commerce product catalog, image assets and customer accounts.

Launched Three New Websites and Point-of-Sale Solution

Envisa designed and developed three new websites using ASP.Net Storefront that were integrated with new Raymark ERP solution. Additionally, Envisa deployed a point-of-sale solution to over forty stores without losing a single business day due to system conversion.

Server Migration to In-House Data Center

As part of the new solution, Envisa migrated several virtual servers from a temporary hosting facility to the existing data center, thereby reducing the cost of owning and operating the ERP system.

A.T. Cross Goes Global Sun, 01 May 2016 02:00:58 +0000

A.T. Cross called on Envisa to architect, design and implement an internationalized site based on an existing US-only e-commerce solution.  The goals was to enable Cross to provision and operate localized e-commerce solutions—that differ in product mix, pricing, language, currency, promotions, etc.—in target markets across Europe, North America, and Asia based on a central global platform.

The Envisa Solution

Envisa was responsible for consolidating two discrete, separately maintained and supported e-commerce assets [one in the US, one in Europe] into a single, centrally maintained solution.

The Results

Strong Global Brand with Consistent Presence

The Cross globalization project provided a common user experience and brand presentation across all target markets thereby solidifying the global brand and improving Cross’s market presence.

Improved Overall Growth and Reach of Business

The Envisa globalization solution leveraged robust product data, creative assets, and marketing content across all supported locales and enabled rapid, low-cost expansion into new markets to drive the overall growth and reach of the business.

More Efficient Use of Marketing Tools

The new Cross global platform provided a balance of the flexibility needed to optimally service local markets with the efficiency afforded by allowing for centralized management of core/common information.  It also enabled investments in new end-user capabilities, infrastructure, and technology to be leveraged across multiple regions/markets.
