Since 1968, Pioneer has been the leading landscape and hardscape supplier in the southwest United States, offering hundreds of products like decorative rock, boulders, sand, mulch, artificial turf, flagstone, pavers, and more to both DIYers and landscape professionals. Pioneer operates 34 retail stores, multiple production facilities, and a fleet of over 250 trucks throughout Arizona and Colorado.
''Our mission is to be the go-to for landscape products for every project, and through our convenient distribution options, and unparalleled customer service, make it easy for our customers to get the job done.''
Client's main pain point during exponential business growth was an old and outdated ERP. They risked a complete shutdown of all operations with a poorly configured system. That is when Tenging's team convinced Pioneer they could handle even the most demanding technical challenges.
We have built an entire ecosystem to match Pioneer's complex ERP requirements – one after another. One after another, we introduced Web Point Of Sale, the CSR app and then the e-commerce website API as well as the mobile app. All these web apps are connected to Microsoft Dynamics and LS Retail – we call it Unified Commerce. Nonetheless, all four sales channels were improved by these new apps in under two years.
Under the hood, it's an ecosystem of Web Apps. We did our best to build a solution with cross-device compatibility & intuitive UI.
