Emergent developed a CMS system for Milestone AV Technologies, a leading provider of mounting and display solutions.
Milestone's innovative products, sold principally under the Chief, Da-Lite, Projecta, Sanus and Vaddio brand names, are sold through numerous channels, including Pro AV dealers, regional home theater dealers, consumer electronics retailers, mass merchants and original equipment manufacturers.
Milestone AV Technologies worked with Emergent to consolidate four brands into a single site. The site was built using the Sitecore CMS and integrated with SAP to display localized product information, pricing, and enable ecommerce functionality.
Another requirement for Milestone’s Sitecore setup waslocalization. Emergent had to setup a variety of regions and languages with varying product mixes. This also required design and front-end development considerations to ensure the site worked properly as text lengths changed.
Emergent also integrated a compatibility search for matching Milestone’s TV and projector mounts to consumer products. This search uses Milestone’s custom compatibility database to quickly return matching results to the web.
The site also allows users to login to their accounts using SAP to place and track orders and to see their custom pricing. This combined several different tools customers were previously using to streamline the process of working with Milestone.
