Altex Electronics moves to an omnichannel solution with NetSuite
Altex had an inconsistent technology platform with many disconnected systems, and was interested in implementing NetSuite’s omnichannel enterprise resource planning platform. The company sought to simplify tasks such as wholesale purchasing, shipping and unified accounting with a single cloud solution. In addition to the back-end business processes, Altex implemented SuiteCommerce Advanced for their complex B2C website that reports across all channels. Within its eight retail locations, Altex also leverages SuiteCommerce InStore as a point-of-sale platform that provides an omnichannel customer experience with unified physical and digital shopping experiences in a single, cloud-based solution.
