Toasting to Success with Magento

Andrew Peller Limited partnered with Northern Commerce for an ambitious Magento 2 implementation to create an innovative, user-friendly online booking and itinerary management system to improve their omnichannel customer experience.

Download the Case Study

Andrew Peller and Northern Commerce collaborated to rebuild the event management system from the ground up to offer customers an improved reservation experience.

The Strategy

Northern Commerce leveraged Magento 2’s capabilities to create an easy-to-use framework called My Wine Country—creating a custom itinerary management system into their eCommerce experience. Magento 2 allowed Northern Commerce to custom-design an administrative dashboard to allow guest services to make specific updates to bookings—including VIP accommodations, digital guest check-ins, and automatically communicate reservation numbers to restaurants and tour guides. This greatly improved efficiencies in managing, communicating, and promoting events. Additionally, the shopping experience was revamped to a more intuitive solution for customers to book what they need and receive helpful post-purchase updates.
