FFF Enterprises

Case Study

fff_collection
With more than one billion dollars in annual sales, FFF is the nation’s largest and most trusted distributor of critical-care biopharmaceuticals, plasma products and vaccines. FFF needed FreshClicks help updating their eCommerce and ERP integration to keep their “Helping Healthcare Care,” promise to the largest and most influential GPOs, specialty pharmacy and hospitals.

Custom ERP to CMS Sync

Since FFF was using a complex ERP solution (Infor M3) they were not very happy with the available eCommerce solutions and the cost-prohibitive ERP sync tools available on the market. Instead, FreshClicks developed a PHP based synchronization system to keep their customer contract agreements and product offerings up to date.

Responsive Framework

When building out the custom Magento theme, FreshClicks used Bootstrap classes so that implementing a mobile layout would be easier than FFF had anticipated.
