Tenzing and ThinkWrap Launch New Enterprise-Class Ecommerce Platform for LOREX
Partners chosen by LOREX for their extensive Oracle ATG Web Commerce experience and proven successes with other e-commerce retailers
TORONTO AND OTTAWA – July 19, 2012
Tenzing Managed IT Services (Tenzing), a leading provider of hosting solutions for ecommerce clients, System Integrators (SIs) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers, along with ThinkWrap Solutions Inc., one of the most respected Oracle ATG SIs in Canada, today announced the successful implementation and launch of an enterprise-class e-commerce platform for LOREX Technology Inc.
LOREX, a provider of leading edge video surveillance security solutions for businesses and consumers, sells its products under the LOREX and Digimerge brands through major distributors and thousands of retail locations in North America. To address the company’s rapid business growth and to meet current and anticipated future online requirements, including customer service for their leading line of security products, LOREX needed a more modern e-commerce solution and selected Oracle ATG Web Commerce.
“We did extensive due diligence to make sure we chose the right solution and partners with a demonstrated ability to collaborate and deliver on time,” says Reuben Klein, Chairman and CEO of LOREX. “Oracle recommended ThinkWrap for systems integration and Tenzing for e-commerce web hosting; and we liked the fact that Tenzing, ThinkWrap and Oracle had experience working together successfully in the past. Working along with our team, they delivered this exciting new solution in only four months.”
ThinkWrap was the driving force in designing, building and integrating the new Oracle ATG Web Commerce site and will continue to play a key role in providing the application support moving forward. “We are extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with the LOREX team,” commented ThinkWrap’s CEO, Steve Byrne. “LOREX has a very crisp and clear vision for their online strategy, which allowed our working relationship to focus on action planning and on achieving results. I am 100% confident LOREX will have a thriving webstore moving forward.”
“Many mid-market companies know they must grow online revenue quickly, but if they want to play on the world stage, they need to embrace enterprise-class solutions,” says Brian Shepard, founder and CEO of Tenzing. “I commend LOREX for using e-commerce as a strategic growth engine and we’re thrilled that Tenzing was able to leverage its experience working with our strategic partners, ThinkWrap and Oracle, to play our role in successfully completing the project as planned and on time.”
Tenzing will service LOREX with comprehensive, end-to-end management of the entire e-commerce infrastructure. As a company that has been hosting and managing mission-critical applications for over a decade and has five years of Oracle Web Commerce experience, Tenzing offers LOREX the availability, performance and support for their online requirements. With its SSAE 16 Type II, ISO27001 certifications and PCI-DSS solutions, Tenzing also ensures the highest levels of security for LOREX customers.
