Press Releases

Cranbury, NJ – September 14, 2017 – Visionet Systems announced today the successful design and deployment of a unified digital commerce platform for Vitamin World that provides a superior online shopping experience to Vitamin World’s customers.

Vitamin World wanted a streamlined, mobile-friendly customer experience for their e-commerce and a fully integrated omni-channel shopping experience.

Visionet deployed a redesigned e-commerce site using Salesforce Commerce Cloud and Microsoft Dynamics 365 in order to deliver a streamlined, omni-channel cloud experience in record time. Visionet completely redesigned the Vitamin World online customer experience on the web and mobile, from its look-and-feel and navigation to personalization and e-commerce capabilities, resulting in an engaging customer journey.

Visionet enabled the streamlined integration of these platforms by leveraging Commerce Cloud for the cross-channel unification of processes, creating a single view of Vitamin World’s business operations that allows them to run advanced analytics and discover valuable actionable opportunities.

The new website based on Salesforce Commerce Cloud provides Vitamin World’s customers with personalized experiences across web, mobile, social, and in-store channels.

Cranbury, NJ – April 12, 2017 – In order to achieve true omni-channel retail capabilities and improve operational efficiency, Mattress Firm has chosen Visionet Systems as strategic technology partner. Visionet has applied its expertise towards integrating Mattress Firm’s existing investments in e-commerce with Microsoft Dynamics AX to produce a centralized information repository that synchronizes all business information across retail channels in near real-time. This has resulted in streamlined e-commerce processing and fulfilment, and a more consistent customer journey.

As a partner of both Microsoft and Demandware, Visionet was the perfect technology provider for this project. “Visionet’s integration solution for Demandware and Dynamics AX has simplified our retail order management,” said Jonathan Sider, CIO at Mattress Firm. “It ensures a single version of the truth, and prevents the proliferation of separate information silos for each sales channel. Automatic synchronization between Dynamics and Demandware has eliminated the need for other error-prone and labor-intensive methods.”

Unifying ERP and e-commerce platforms has led to many strategic benefits. “Maintaining a single data repository lets Mattress Firm implement genuine omni-channel workflows, such as support for in-store or home delivery of products ordered over the phone or online,” said Orryn Sledge, Senior Vice President, Professional Services at Visionet Systems. “Synchronizing Demandware with Dynamics has also improved inventory visibility, and provides consistent product availability irrespective of sales channel. It has also produced a clearer picture of customer loyalty, with cross-channel sales information used to generate analytics for store managers and measure each customer’s lifetime value. These improvements enable smart clienteling and more effective digital marketing, and result in higher customer satisfaction.”

Integration between Demandware and Dynamics was achieved in a quick and cost-effective fashion by using CommerceLink, Visionet’s pre-built e-commerce integration solution, www.visionetsystems.com/solutions/commercelink. Completely linking the two systems has helped Mattress Firm effectively monitor and optimize customer interactions. “Visionet’s CommerceLink solution has helped us achieve visibility into all of our consumer interactions across our multiple online and store channels,” said Tony Miller, Vice President of Enterprise Systems at Mattress Firm. “This was important for us in order to improve our customer engagement, bring merchandising consistency, and streamline fulfilment processes. Visionet’s EdgeAX CommerceLink solution cut through complexities, simplified these business processes, and helped us achieve our objectives across channels.”
