To cover both marketing and online retail needs, we implemented a combination of Sitefinity and Shopify. Sitefinity offers a robust platform for the marketing site to power branding initiatives, dealer location functionality and blog. Utilizing Shopify's powerful platform we are able to make a seamless transition to the shopping experience.
When it came time to overhaul Aprilaire’s old ecommerce system which had become outdated and was overly complicated we determined that Shopify Plus was the right platform to build the new store on. Shopify Plus offered the right balance of out of the box features and ability to customize to accomplish the objectives that had been set out for the redesign.
The Shopify Plus platform allowed us to streamline and simplify the checkout process for customers, and to improve the efficiency of backend processes. We were able to fully integrate Aprilaire’s existing order fulfillment procedures with Shopify through Shopify’s APIs. Using those APIs to establish a connection to their existing AS/400 database system, we are now able to pass each order’s information to and from Shopify automatically for a seamless integration. The end result is a seamless end to end system for both the customer and Aprilaire’s team.
