Case Study: New website launches for Vent-Axia
Steve Allen

We're delighted to have this month launched the new Vent-Axia UK website -

Vent-Axia are a leading international distributor of ventilation, heating and air conditioning equipment around the world and are one of Adaptive's longest-standing clients, having worked with us since 2008.

In addition to the new modern, responsive front-end design, the launch of the new website has also tied in with a large internal project at Vent-Axia to replace their old ERP system with a new system from Epicor.

The project therefore saw us integrating the new Drupal platform with the Epicor E10 system via a series of web services specifically built to pass data between the website and Epicor. This enables live price and stock level data to be shown on the website, passes new customer registrations and online product orders directly from the website into Epicor and also enables trade customers to view and track their past orders via the site's Online Trade Counter.

As well as being able to browse and order a large range of Vent-Axia products online, the website also enables visitors to search for their nearest Vent-Axia product stockist via a postcode search, download the company's latest catalogues and brochures and also search and download wiring and fitting instructions for most products.

The new UK site follows the earlier launch of the company's Dutch website, utilising Drupal's Domain Access and Internationalisation modules to deliver multiple, multilingual websites from a single Drupal installation. A third site, for the German market, also soon followed.
