Jergens Industrial Supply got in touch with Cloras to connect their data touchpoints ERP and eCommerce, namely BigCommerce with P21. They wanted to harness the benefits of integration and data to transform the way they do business and to repel the repetitive tasks that have been taking away their time. Another challenge they were facing was the sync of offline orders into the customers’ website account.

Also, pricing was an issue they were facing due to the number of products JIS had. They wanted a solution where the systems show Dynamic Prices to customers based on their nature or (previous buying stats). Adding to these woes is manual data entry which is again a laborious and time-eating task.

The problems were multiple. But the solution, one: Integration.
