The Cook & Boardman Group stands as a leading manufacturer and distributor of building materials in the United States. With an extensive network of more than 40 distribution centres and over 25 subsidiaries nationwide, they have gained recognition for supplying high-quality doors, frames, hardware products, and other specialized items tailored to accommodate both new construction projects and renovations.
The Cook & Boardman Group was rapidly expanding, acquiring numerous distinct brands, each with its own individual website. These websites operated on separate systems, were managed by different vendors, and functioned autonomously. This decentralized structure posed substantial challenges for the marketing team, making it exceedingly complex to maintain website synchronization, ensure timely updates, and effectively manage content across this array of brands. Furthermore, routine updates necessitated constant reliance on developers, adding to the complexity.
To tackle these challenges, C&B set out to find a strategic partner capable of helping them consolidate all their websites onto a unified platform. Their primary objective was to implement next-generation content management capabilities, enabling the centralized management of all 14 websites from a single platform.
Moreover, C&B had future plans to incorporate eCommerce functionality into these websites, emphasizing the need for an experienced DXP platform that could address both their current and future eCommerce needs.
