When Blue Rock opened its doors back in 2005, we had no customers requiring an e-commerce front end to their business.
Though prominent in the multi-national businesses, the progress by the independent construction materials suppliers in the UK was slow.
The “traditional merchant” with its trade counters, sales desks and fields sales teams were very much the norm.
Blue Rock’s first experience in this field was integrating the old legacy system, Xeres, into a best of breed, self-built e–commerce solution at one of our larger construction material suppliers.
Whilst the technology bridge between a 30-year-old legacy system and a modern e-commerce platform proved to be a challenge – it did work and still works today.
