"The ability to use our existing PathFinder system helped keep development costs down and as we already had complete confidence in PathFinder we knew that from going live our orders would arrive. We needed an efficient on-line ordering system to help save our time and our Spare Parts customers' time, so we asked Orion to build a system which would enable quick transactions without the overhead of a consumer site designed for window shopping. When a large retailer said 'The website is very easy to use....it's one of the easiest sites I've ever seen and because it's not cluttered it loads very quickly too' it confirmed that we had got the balance right."
