N e t a initially started working with AERIN to help roll out its eCommerce platform. At the time of introduction, AERIN, as a brand, made a commitment to AERIN.com, becoming its flagship. They had already selected the robust Demandware (now part of SalesForce) eCommerce platform, information architecture and graphic front-end design were in process with previously retained 3rd Party agencies. No back-end system (OMS, ERP), fulfillment strategy or center, payment processing or marketing (beyond in-house PR) had yet been fully planned, selected or negotiated.
Our challenge & opportunity
Our initial challenge presented in our eCommerce strategy was getting AERIN.com to launch, within aggressive timeline expectations that were heightened by a global brand launch. This opportunity led to becoming a trusted strategic and metrics driven partner who helped AERIN.com achieve a 163% 3-Year CAGR, and for AERIN.com to be the # 1 door.
Bringing Aerin’s vision to launch.
The first challenge presented in our eCommerce service implementation for AERIN, was getting AERIN.com to launch, within aggressive timeline expectations; communications had to be streamlined across multiple AERIN partners. neta provided best-in-class project and performance management, supplemental wireframes to guide graphic design in accordance with Demandware requirements and functional specification to elevate the end-to-end AERIN.com experience. Once teams and deliverables were supported, and the implementation was in motion, neta shifted gears to help AERIN execute Demandware’s ‘link cartridge’ partners required for launch, including payment processor/fraud software, OMS (Order Management System) and its fulfillment center. This process, which is part of our technology service offering , included the development of detailed business and technical requirements specified for the DW integration and vendor negotiations. neta served as the UAT lead prior to launch and the over-arching timeline & project management. As the AERIN.com launch approached, neta adapted programming specification documentation into internal AERIN training guides that would help bring future in-house resources up to speed efficiently in order to process orders and administer AERIN’s eCommerce operation.
