“Although our current ecommerce platform was adequate, we sought a more flexible and progressive solution for our ever increasing customer base. Having benchmarked a number of products, we were excited about the powerful features and versatility built into the Magento Enterprise cart. Believing it could provide our loyal customers with an enhanced shopping experience, it quickly became our strategic solution of choice going forward,” says Chris Vasta, SVP, The CPAP Shop. “Even though we have incorporated unmatched functionality in our first phase, we will continue to innovate and offer our customers a more satisfying shopping experience as we move into phase two of our development.”

The CPAP Shop collaborated with ecommerce solution provider Boomtown Internet Group to develop the platform. Clay Simmons, Boomtown Internet Group Project Manager, said: “By using a combination of Magento Enterprise Edition and Boomtown expertise, The CPAP Shop gains access to an extremely cost-effective business solution. Magento Enterprise and its partner network offer a vast array of standard functionality, meaning The CPAP Shop can react quickly to their customers’ needs. With over 10 years of ebusiness experience, Boomtown Internet Group provides a wealth of expertise in ecommerce solutions. The new ecommerce store will offer an extremely flexible online solution for years to come.”
