USA’s 3rd top electrical distributor

USESI is a 44-year-old electrical supply giant in the U.S.A's wholesale electrical components distribution market. USESI holds 14 subsidiary brands located at different locations and caters to a diverse customer base which includes electricians, contractors, corporate clients, architects, engineers, and lighting designers.

The company enjoys a wide distribution network and strong local presence making it one of the most sought-after brands in the U.S. market.

Challenges

USESI was on a legacy platform and was looking to move to a flexible and robust eCommerce platform that can support customization specific to their business. The team zeroed in on Magento to power the brand’s omnichannel vision.

USESI wanted to add features to the website that could expand sales channels, improve customer experience and strengthen its digital footprint. The brand wanted its existing customers to adopt digital buying and increase new customer acquisitions through online channels.

The client did not want any downtime when the system updates occur.

USESI was looking for a reliable partner that had the technical know-how to bring out the best in Magento and establish a truly digital ecosystem.
