Smyrna Truck felt threatened by younger, ‘digital-first’ players in the industry. They chose B2BWoo to get ahead with their Wholesale eCommerce Portal.
In the rapidly evolving commercial and fire truck manufacturing industry, Smyrna Truck, a seasoned player, faced a significant challenge. The emergence of younger, ‘digital-first’ companies was reshaping the market landscape, capturing market share with innovative digital experiences. Recognizing the need to adapt and stay ahead, Smyrna Truck embarked on a strategic move to enhance its digital presence through a robust wholesale eCommerce portal.
Smyrna Truck’s legacy in the industry, marked by quality and reliability, was being tested by the digital agility of new market entrants. These competitors were not just offering products but also engaging customer experiences through digital platforms. To maintain its market position and appeal to a modern customer base, Smyrna Truck needed to transform its online presence, making it more accessible, user-friendly, and efficient.
The Solution: B2BWoo
After thorough market research, Smyrna Truck partnered with Codup, a highly-rated IT service provider, to rebuild their eCommerce website. The goal was clear: to create a state-of-the-art wholesale eCommerce portal that could compete with the digital prowess of emerging players in the industry.
Codup, leveraging its expertise, implemented a comprehensive solution using B2BWoo. This platform was chosen for its flexibility, scalability, and ability to provide a tailored B2B eCommerce experience. The project involved several key deliverables:
Configuring B2BWoo Suite:
This included setting up custom roles, discount rules, quick order functionality, NET payment options, and PDF downloads on product pages.
Custom Code-Level Customizations:
To enhance user experience, Codup implemented a flexible Model Number Search Box, allowing for easy navigation and searchability of van body parts.
Theme Integration and Customization:
Utilizing the “WoodMart” theme, Codup aligned the website’s design with Smyrna Truck’s corporate identity, ensuring a seamless and intuitive user experience.
The collaboration with Codup and the integration of B2BWoo transformed Smyrna Truck’s digital presence. The new wholesale eCommerce portal not only matched the digital offerings of its competitors but also provided a user-friendly, efficient, and comprehensive online platform for their customers. The project was completed within the predetermined scope, with all bugs fixed and user acceptance testing (UAT) successfully conducted.
Smyrna Truck’s strategic decision to upgrade its digital capabilities with B2BWoo positioned it strongly against the competition from digital-first newcomers. This move not only preserved its market share but also enhanced its reputation as a forward-thinking, customer-centric company in the commercial and fire truck manufacturing industry. The success of this project stands as a testament to Smyrna Truck’s commitment to innovation and excellence in an ever-evolving digital landscape.
