The sager.com site was launched on Oracle Commerce using the Open Storefront Framework (OSF) to create a better user experience and provide an improved set of tools for both customers and employees.

  • To design an improved user experience to find the right product based on better search and faceted navigation
  • To implement ease of onboarding new and existing accounts onto the site to drive industry adoption of online tools


The Solution:

    Landing page 2) An upgraded Address Book 3) The ability to save payments 4) The
    implementation of Purchase Lists 5) The capacity to review Invoice History
  • Upgraded account registration/integration to PeopleSoft process for both manual and auto
    approvals with the goal to auto approve and provide cleaner data for the backend system.
