B2B ECOMMERCE SUCCESS STORIES

Catsports

How k-eCommerce transformed this online sports business

“The k-eCommerce team allowed us to create functional sites linked in real time to our ERP system, in addition to offering easy-to-use marketing tools.”

Sophie Chaloux, Marketing and Communications, Catsports

Catsports

Catsports began as a small Canadian volleyball equipment business, run out of one professional player’s garage. By 2014, the company had expanded to sell a wide range of sporting equipment all over the country.

Soon, the growing demands meant Catsports had to think about moving their operations online.

k-eCommerce supports a wide range of online businesses, and in 2014, the Canadian sports equipment company Catsports chose k-eCommerce as their integrated e-commerce platform.

Challenges

In 2014, Catsports didn’t have a transactional website — their sales were completed by phone or fax. They needed an e-commerce platform that could:

  • Make ordering easier for shoppers
  • Eliminate the need for multiple phone-based customer service agents
  • Offer a smooth, mistake-free ordering process

Solution

Catsports relied on Microsoft Dynamics NAV. k-eCommerce offered a Microsoft Dynamics NAV integration that was easy to implement and simple to use.

With the business successfully migrated online, Sophie was able to implement a more mature marketing strategy using the user-friendly system.

k-eCommerce gave Catsports everything they needed to create the online business that would empower them to continue expanding:

An e-commerce solution that integrates to Microsoft Dynamics NAV
Easy to manage user interface
A CMS with a “beautiful configuration”
Expanded marketing possibilities
Coupon and gift card service
PCI and SSL compliant
Excellent customer support

Catsports’ growth has been largely thanks to integrating their ERP with k-eCommerce—and their success isn’t slowing down.

“Year after year, we are seeing strong growth in our online sales volume.”
