The Challenge

HKI approached Icreon to redevelop their legacy ERP system that was restricting business growth. In addition, they wanted

to implement a new B2B ecommerce system that would provide a seamless way for customers to purchase HKI products.

The Analysis

Since HKI's legacy system was core to its business, it was important for Icreon to understand the business inside and out before suggesting what technologies would best fit. Icreon conducted an extensive

two-month solution design phase, sending architects to serve onsite at HKI’s offices in Ireland and England. Through various workshops and one-on-one interviews, Icreon established the B2B application requirements.

Development
Using Microsoft .NET, SQL, C# and Starquest, Icreon redeveloped HKI’s ERP system. Moreover, Icreon designed and built a user-friendly B2B ecommerce portal from which HKI
customers could choose and order new equipment and spare parts. Icreon then integrated the new ecommerce portal into HKI’s ERP system, synchronizing all business data and processes.
