Magento Success Story: ViewSonic (www.viewsonic.com
A rich shopping experience coupled with complex Oracle integration has meant success for ViewSonic on many levels.
“A fully integrated eCommerce site in under two months is quite an achievement. Magento’s rich, built-in features and open architecture are the true magic behind this success.” James Shi, VP of Development, Silk Software.

Magento Solution Partner: Silk Software
Challenge: Upgrade and Integrate in a Critical Timeframe
ViewSonic depends on its online store to sell its products and provide branded support for its traditional sales channels. Two months before the critical holiday season, they found themselves without a development partner, and they turned to Silk Software to put together a solution that would give them the online presence they wanted and that would connect seamlessly to their Oracle-based backend systems.
Solution: ViewSonic Finds Success with Silk Software and Magento
ViewSonic chose Silk Software for their experience and ability to move quickly and flexibly to design a powerful eCommerce site.
How Silk Software did it:
Used Magento Enterprise for its open APIs, powerful marketing tools and extensive features
Careful resource planning and execution
Implementation of a sophisticated content management system (CMS)
Custom extensions created for ViewSonic’s unique requirements
Result: A New Site Without Skipping a Beat
The new ViewSonic now works the way they envisioned it, and the successful integration was completed in record time.
A job well done:
More powerful promotion and marketing tools
A look and feel that reflects the company’s values and expertise
Front- and backend systems that work in harmony
ViewSonic was facing potential disaster when their plans for a better online store hit a snag two months before the holiday season, but a partnership with Silk Software and the powerful flexibility of Magento Enterprise gave them what they needed when they needed it.
