Equinavia leaves legacy platform for better merchandising, order management, customer experience and lower costs with VTEX

July 16, 2020

NEW YORK, JULY 15, 2020 – VTEX, a multinational tech company that provides a global, fully integrated, end-to-end commerce solution, welcomes Equinavia and its B2C store Equinavia.com (previously Horze.com) to its network of commerce providers. The equestrian clothing, equipment and supply retailer based in Watertown, Connecticut, recently left Salesforce Commerce Cloud for VTEX Cloud Commerce in pursuit of better merchandising, order management, customer experience and lower costs.

“Since we switched to the VTEX platform, our site has performed better in customer communication, inventory management, merchandising and much more,” said Henrik Monfort, Equinavia’s software and technology development project leader. “With VTEX, we’ve experienced efficient ecommerce management, better customer satisfaction around shipping and more reliable on-site merchandising.”

While most equestrian brands have long been entrenched in tradition, applying old-fashion commerce tactics in a digital age, Equinavia saw the opportunity to break the mold and adapt to its customers’ changing preferences. Its bold strategy of actively selling in all channels to support the overall branding was new — especially to distributors and tack stores. VTEX was the last part of the puzzle in helping Equinavia better support the underserved equine market.

“Equinavia’s positive experience is the result of our focus on accelerating commerce transformation,” said Amit Shah, VTEX US General Manager. “Our goal is to help companies rapidly optimize and grow their commerce business with a unified view of inventory and orders, and to deliver these capabilities in a way that drastically reduces time-to-implement and time-to-revenue. This is why we are seeing more enterprise companies leave their legacy platforms for our comprehensive and scalable solution.”

Equinavia has been impressed by their new choice of commerce platform.

“We love that VTEX comes with so many built-in features, like the commerce, marketplace, OMS and multiple storefront management capabilities,” Monfort said. “It’s a simplified and extremely affordable platform that’s also well-optimized for our business. Making the switch was the right move as we look to grow online.”
