Ciqola Carpets, offering quality rugs, has now launched its webshop. Ciqola is a new Swedish E-Business company within the Rusta Group. Together with the IT consultant Sigma, Ciqola Carpets has implemented Storm Commerce platform for both E-commerce and PIM.
At Ciqola Carpets, we have a wide and unique range of affordable quality rugs for every type of room. To market our offer we needed an inspiring and functional webshop, says Andreas Bertilsköld, Project Leader at Ciqola Carpets.
The new webshop has a Storm Commerce platform for digital commerce, with a PIM (Product Information Management) system included, and Umbraco CMS. The platform was implemented by Sigma IT.
We were looking for a future-proof solution, with good opportunities for rapid and step-by-step development, and found the solution in Storm Commerce. With Sigma as e-commerce partner and Storm Commerce as PIM and e-commerce platform, we have the right systems to market our offer. In addition, Umbraco CMS and Storm Commerce are both intuitive and user-friendly, and these were important requirements for us, Andreas explains. Sigma IT, who has extensive experience of both e-commerce projects and PIM projects, did the implementation of Ciqola Carpet's webshop.
"We recommended the combination Storm-Umbraco for Ciqola Carpets. Firstly, because the time from decision to launch of the first version, is very short. Storm Commerce has several different APIs and other ready-made functions, which makes it possible for us as a partner to integrate and combine selected systems in a standardized and quality-assured manner. Secondly, it’s easy to create a modern user experience with Umbraco as a tool, and together with Storm Commerce, the solution becomes both efficient and scalable for the future."
Adan Hultgren, Business Developer at Sigma IT.
