Approach

Digital Bridge Solutions integrated Drupal Commerce with Hawk’s proprietary ERP system to web-enable product, pricing, customer, and order data. The new platform allows customers to browse, search, and transact with 500,000+ SKUs in Hawk’s warehouse while supporting critical B2B commerce features like payment “on account”, parent/child relationships between users and companies, and volume-based pricing. Digital Bridge also built a new-to-the-industry product configurator allowing customers to “build their own” components by selecting desired product attributes, creating purchase-able items from a universe of 50+ million potential SKUs.

Results

Hawk Electronics has become “relevant again” in their industry thanks to a fully transactional eCommerce catalog and the proprietary online part configurator which major suppliers are seeking to license and re-purpose.
