Founded in Canada in 1975, the group employs over 1300 people based in 13 different countries.

The Challenge

HKI approached Icreon to completely overhaul their legacy ERP system that was restricting business growth. Moreover, they wanted to implement a

new digital ecommerce platform that would provide a seamless way for customers to purchase HKI products.

The Analysis

Since HKI’s legacy system was core to its business, it was important for Icreon to understand the business inside and out before suggesting what technologies would best fit. Icreon conducted an extensive two-month solution design phase,

sending architects to serve onsite at HKI’s offices in Ireland and England. Through various workshops and one-on-one interviews, Icreon established the B2B application requirements.

Using Microsoft .NET, SQL, C# and Starquest, Icreon redeveloped HKI’s ERP system. Moreover, Icreon designed and built a user-friendly B2B ecommerce portal from which HKI customers could choose
and order new equipment and spare parts. Icreon then integrated the new ecommerce portal into HKI’s ERP system, synchronizing all business data and processes.
