Rochester Electronics is teaming up with iMarc to refresh its global online presence and accelerate eCommerce efforts

Rochester Electronics announced today that it has partnered with Newburyport, MA based digital agency iMarc, LLC to create a new corporate website and eCommerce system. iMarc has extensive experience crafting custom web solutions that help global professional and consumer organizations do business better. As a global leader in semiconductor lifecycle solutions, Rochester’s website is a key platform for educating customers about products and capabilities. The website also now serves as a valuable sales channel through online ordering.

“We are excited to be partnering with iMarc on this critical project,” said Rochester President, Chris Gerrish. “We fully expect the new site to deliver an enhanced design and user experience that all of our customers, globally, will benefit from greatly.”

Rochester’s website is used by thousands of customers each day to find critically needed semiconductors and also by potential customers who need to better understand the full capabilities and solutions Rochester offers. iMarc will be delivering an intuitive custom search and a fully responsive website, which achieves both of these goals along with being effective across the full range of mobile devices and tablets.

According to Bob Wiles, Rochester’s project manager for the website redesign, iMarc stood out during the proposal phase for several reasons. “In addition to being local to us and having a very capable in-house team, iMarc really demonstrated an understanding of our goals and vision, as well as the need for a seamless experience internationally. They design very modern sites focused on functionality and user experience with a clear understanding of flexibility for future enhancements.”

Key enhancements that the new site will deliver include: a streamlined online ordering system, the ability for international customers to place orders in local languages and currencies, and better integration with Rochester’s business systems for payment terms and account set-up.

Wiles added, “Asia and Europe account for almost half of our website traffic right now. We absolutely need to be able to offer all customers the best possible researching and online buying experience. Enhancing the international experience is a critical aspect of this project.”

Nick Grant, iMarc’s CEO and producer on the project remarks, “This is a great opportunity for iMarc to bring our expertise in developing online custom solutions to a fantastic local organization. Like Rochester Electronics, quality and innovation are core to our values and we are looking forward to collaborating on what will be an amazing result.”
