The Milestone site uses Sitecore to display thousands of products across multiple brands. These products are created using data from SAP, which is used to categorize them and allow filtering and comparing. Milestone’s products have a complex hierarchy including variations in colors and TV mounting patterns, creating a family of products underneath each parent. There are also associations in Sitecore between a product and its compatible accessories.
Another requirement for Milestone’s Sitecore setup was localization. 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.
