Hardinge, a long time JDE customer, is a multinational manufacture of machining tools, serving the machining world. It's computer-controlled machines cut horizontally or vertically and can be connected to automatic material feeders for unattended machining.

Wanting to expand its website, Hardinge partnered with SmarterCommerce to address their unique requirements for an ecommerce site. Several challenges were overcome such as different pricing, multiple shipment locations, self-service reporting and integrated payment options. The implementation of this JD Edwards integrated ecommerce website increased ecommerce orders from 12% to over 50% of orders placed.
