The client is a leading global manufacturer of polymer resins with operations in 11 countries on four continents, their products are sold in over 80 countries.
The client was migrating their ERP platform from SAP onto Microsoft Dynamics AX. They required their B2B portal to be rebuilt so that it would integrate with their new AX ERP, utilise the client brand and be available across any device.
Emerio developed a robust and scalable ASP.NET MVC & SQL Server based solution that implemented smart caching of AX data that both enabled better performance to users of the portal and also reduced load on the ERP. The B2B portal was branded in line with existing corporate guidelines and utilised a responsive design that allowed the portal adapt its appearance depending on the device being used to browse.

- Product Technical Data Sheets and Material Safety Data Sheets interfacing with InfoSafe
- Client Registration

- ASP.NET MVC and SQL SERVER 2008 R2

The solution allowed the clients customers access their entire catalogue of products and enabled them to maintain different pricing for different customers and quantities. The load on their AX ERP caused by the B2B portal was reduced by using a smart caching (based on Microsoft AppFabric) algorithm which freed the client from concerns of overloading their global ERP. The use of the responsive portal design allowed the client maintain a single application that could be accessed by multiple devices instead of having to manage multiple portals to satisfy serving various devices. The solution was architected to enable the client to add more resources so that the portal would easily scale when usage demanded it.
