Perficient accepted the Pulse Award for VWGoA at Liferay Symposium North America in Chicago on Tuesday.

“We were excited to be in a position to help Volkswagen Group of America reinvent the way in which they interact with their dealers,” said Joel Stanesa, general manager at Perficient. “The Liferay tools and technologies made the project seamless from interface design and systems-integration standpoints. Being able to bring our automotive industry experience, Perficient Digital agency, and deep technical skills enabled us to partner with VWGoA to deliver on one of their most strategic initiatives in a way that delighted the dealer community.”
