Project overview

Palmers Textil AG is a fashion retail brand established in 1914 in Austria. In 2015-2018, the company was modernizing all of its core elements, including the online shop. We replaced the outdated SAP Hybris with a powerful combination of Magento 2, FIEGE OMS, and a Klarna payment system. Everything’s interconnected and integrated with the main SAP platform.

Business challenge

Palmers opened its first online shop back in 2000. In the middle of the 2010s, new heads joined the brand, including Marc Wieser, ex-CEO of Nike and Benetton. The team started rebuilding the company, making it more digital and modern. Particularly, they wanted to make the website more effective, attract new clients, and increase revenue.

As part of the global modernization, Palmers hired us to migrate the e-commerce part from SAP Hybris to Magento 2. The former system was outdated and required a costly upgrade. The latter one was more cost-effective. In addition, our clients decided to connect to a new order fulfillment system plus a new payment provider.

Technical challenges

Palmers wanted to get a modern, user-friendly online shop with new features. The main task was to migrate the entire e-commerce section. We moved it from the old SAP Hybris version to a new Magento 2, open-source platform written on PHP. Further, we connected this online shop to a new FIEGE Order Management System with FTP and XML tech. Finally, both solutions were integrated with a Klarna payment tool and back-office SAP software.

Solution delivered

We redesigned the e-commerce solution and the online shop of Palmers. After migration, it got a new user interface that motivates clients to make better purchase decisions. It also delivers filters and flypages. On the back end, the system integrates with SAP and has fulfillment solutions, order management, improved accounting.
