The decision to migrate off of such a well-known and robust platform was not easy. But an executive decision was made to migrate to Ability OMS after reviewing its capabilities and its total cost of ownership.
Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) May 23, 2014
Ability Commerce, the leading provider of direct commerce software, today announced that Mack’s Prairie Wings, the premier retailer of waterfowl gear and equipment, is now live on Ability’s backend order management system (Ability OMS).
Mack’s Prairie Wings, # 17 on the Internet Retailer’s Second 500, now runs both Ability’s order management platform and its SmartSite ecommerce platform (ECP) to power its ecommerce, catalog, and brick and mortar channels.
The successful migration off of JDA Software’s Direct Commerce Suite (formerly Red Prairie, Ecometry, Smith Gardner Associates), is an eye opener to many in the direct commerce world, as the JDA Direct Commerce brand is regarded by many as the top ERP solution for ecommerce and catalog companies.
Cheryl Rainey, CFO of Mack’s Prairie Wings said, “The decision to migrate off of such a well-known and robust platform was not easy. But an executive decision was made to migrate to Ability OMS after reviewing its capabilities and its total cost of ownership. Having cooperating partners made the experience a win for all involved”.
The timing of this announcement comes just a few weeks from the major announcement by JDA Software that Ability Commerce would now be providing professional services to JDA’s Direct Commerce customer base.
Diane Buzzeo, CEO of Ability Commerce said, “The Ability Commerce/JDA alliance is a testament to the mutual desire that the Ecometry platform remains a long term solution for the JDA Direct Commerce customer base”.
Shawn Ellen, Director of Sales and Marketing at Ability Commerce added, “In the case of Mack’s Prairie Wings, the platform migration just made economic and technologic sense. We’re thrilled to have another outstanding OMS user, but continue to work hard at building and maintaining a solid professional services team to service the needs of customers who intend to stay on the JDA Commerce and Direct Commerce solutions.”
