ISSAQUAH, Wash. - Costco Wholesale Corp. selected Microsoft Commerce Server 2002 to increase speed and efficiency in building its online commerce solutions.
Through a joint development program with Microsoft for the 2006 version of Commerce Server and Commerce Server 2002 Feature Pack 1, Costco.com realized increased site performance and scalability resulting in a system able to support Costco.com.
"Our Commerce Server solution is providing a solid return on investment," said Luke Friang, director of e-commerce technologies at Costco. "The functionality, combined with our own customization, has allowed our merchants and site managers to create and manage their categories, products, discounts and other general content needs without the assistance of IT. Our merchants and site managers have the tools they need to manage their business, which allows IT to focus on delivering new solutions to drive the business. We are saving both time and money."
Shortly after going live with Commerce Server 2002 Feature Pack 1, Costco.com set a new online revenue record and site record for peak orders.
