ST. LOUIS (April 10, 2017) – Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced Perficient Digital has received the prestigious Imagine Excellence Award for Best B2B Experience during Magento Imagine 2017 at the Wynn Las Vegas resort and casino.
Perficient Digital was honored in the Best B2B Experience category for its work with Carrier Enterprise, a provider of heating, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) aftermarket parts via online channels and more than 200 physical locations. Using Magento, Perficient Digital built a site for Carrier Enterprise that provides an efficient, flexible ordering process ensuring timely delivery of parts to HVAC contractors and helps them complete more jobs per week.
Carrier Enterprise’s online sales increased from less than 5 percent to more than 10 percent of total sales within nine months of launching the site. Daily online sales continue to rise, and online transactions have tripled.
“It is an honor to be recognized by Magento with this prestigious award,” said Ed Gaffney, president of Carrier Enterprise’s Digital Business. “Our partnership with Perficient Digital and Magento has allowed us to accelerate our launch-and-iterate B2B digital commerce strategy. We’re continually improving the customer’s experience by enabling engagement, technical support, and sales on any mobile device 24/7/365 while building the largest source of digitized HVAC content in the industry.”
