WebShop, the B2B eCommerce solution from the Aphix Digital Platform with real-time integration with their SAP Business One ERP is the solution of choice for Clipper Retail and Sekura Global
Clipper Retail and Sekura Global are part of the Clipper Retail Collective group.
Clipper retail is one of the largest providers of retail accessories across the UK and Europe and has been supplying proven products and solutions for retail labelling and display to blue-chip retailers since 1977.
Sekura Global is the retail security distribution division of the group and was set up in 2012, selling retail security solutions across the UK, Europe, US and more recently Canada.
The SAP Business One ERP system, provided by their SAP Partner, Seidor UK, is central to business operations across the group and in all regions.
A desire to enhance customer service with online ordering and access to B2B customer accounts, coupled with a drive to streamline business processes by minimising the drain on resources that manual order processing created, meant the right B2B eCommerce solution was a logical step for the company.
The company had also undertaken a rebranding exercise to refresh and realign the various brands across the business, so mirroring this online was essential. Both Clipper Retail and Sekura Global needed to be represented in their own right with their differing brand and product offerings clear.
After consultation with their trusted SAP Partner, Seidor UK, it was clear that an eCommerce solution fully integrated with SAP Business One was needed. It could give their customers access to the live pricing, stock and my-account information held in SAP Business One. It would be vital to achieving the customer service enhancement and reduction in manual order processing that prompted their search for a solution.
Seidor UK, introduced the Clipper group to Aphix. Through their partnership with Aphix Seidor knew that the Aphix Digital Platform for SAP Business One would fit their requirements perfectly and the close working relationship between ERP and eCommerce providers and systems would help Clipper to succeed digitally in the long term.
Focussing on the UK market initially for Clipper Retail, followed by a UK, US and Canadian launch for the Sekura Global brand, the group chose a B2B eCommerce solution for Clipper Retail and Sekura Global as independent brands in their respective regions.
WebShop from the eCommerce suite of products on the Aphix Platform, provided real-time integration with SAP Business One as well as the functionality and brand critical design capabilities they needed.
With real-time customer-specific pricing, live stock availability and 24/7 access to online ordering and my-account information such as invoices, order history and recently ordered products, all direct from SAP Business One, customer service is strengthened. Plus, with orders from the WebShop going straight into the customer account in SAP Business One, manual processing could be a thing of the past.
The flexibility of the Aphix Platform means the group can grow and scale their business easily online. Launching further brands and connecting into other existing and future regions and markets will be easily attainable for the Clipper group using their existing ERP integration.
The Aphix Platform offers a full suite of integrated SaaS solutions including eCommerce, Mobile apps and eProcurement solutions, meaning anything is possible.
