Arc International Case Study
Arc International started as a French family-run glass-making business in 1825. Today, it’s the world’s largest glass manufacturer. Headquartered in Arques, France, the company produces and distributes high-quality, exquisite crystal and glassware across all continents. Arc International has an annual revenue of over $1B+ and manages five commercial brands. To implement their worldwide eCommerce initiatives, the company searched for a comprehensive B2B eCommerce solution. Because they wanted to launch their multi-national webstores as soon as possible, Arc International required a flexible eCommerce platform that’s ready made for B2B right out-of-the-box.
Arc International’s leadership team are big believers of Open Source Softwares (OSS). OroCommerce, being an open-source solution with a robust tech stack and out-of-the-box B2B features, clearly fit their technology philosophy and business needs. Also because the solution was built on the Symfony2 PHP framework, Arc knew it would be able to work with a number of local integration partners and developers during implementation. Powerful pre-built B2B ecommerce features allowed Arc to minimize customizations and get to market quicker, which is crucial for any type of business. Their next steps are to roll out their multi-national website worldwide and leverage OroCommerce Enterprise Edition’s multi-language and multi-currency features to expand their business.
OroCommerce was simply the right fit for us because of its Open Source philosophy and rich out-of-the-box features. We were very happy to get our international site live quickly.
