Make your OroCommerce projects a success with Synolia, certified agency and long-standing partner
Synolia, gold partner of OroCommerce
Rather than define the functional basis of its BtoB platform on its own, Oro surrounded itself with six international partners to build a new-generation BtoB solution with them. Oro launches the “Core Partner Program”, making Synolia the solution’s one and only French-speaking partner for e-commerce website creation.
In 2019, we are the first partner in the world to achieve gold partner status, the highest level of certification offered by the publisher.
OroCommerce, the BtoB component of the Oro platform
In 2012, after more than four years spent developing the Magento platform, Jary Carter, Yoav Kutner and Dima Soroka founded Oro Inc.
Their undisputed expertise in e-commerce solutions prompted them to launch Oro, a new platform that would be the technological foundation for a new generation of solutions.
First, they launch OroCRM, a customer relationship management solution dedicated to BtoC. The solution grew rapidly under the impetus of the management team. But also thanks to an excellent network of expert partners, of which Synolia soon became the leading player in Europe.
Shortly afterwards, the platform was enriched with Akeneo, a new PIM brick.
Oro’s founders personally invested in this solution from a young French start-up (cocorico!). In just a few months, Akeneo became the world leader in open source PIM solutions. Once again, Synolia was involved from the outset, becoming one of the main partners in France.
On April 8, 2015, Oro launches the third brick in its platform with OroCommerce, an e-commerce solution dedicated to BtoB. On the strength of its involvement in all the solutions revolving around Oro, Synolia naturally becomes the solution’s first partner.
Why an e-commerce platform dedicated to BtoB?
Since Synolia was founded in 2004, dozens of companies have benefited from our BtoB e-commerce support. All with constraints specific to their activity: management of multiple price catalogs, multiple shopping baskets, commercial relations between the company and its professional customers (requests for quotes, specific quotations, cascading orders)… These are all functions that are complex to implement on platforms initially designed to deal with BtoC issues.
Systematic adaptation to BtoB constraints requires costly and often highly complex developments (advanced interfaces with the company’s ERP). And the only solutions truly dedicated to BtoB activities are often proprietary, expensive, restrictive and not very scalable. In short, there was a place to be had, and Oro took it with intelligence.
