Legacy tech preventing growth

Monk Office is a third-generation family-owned office supply business with retail outlets across Vancouver Island. As customer behaviour shifts to ordering online and picking up in store, or indeed vice versa, Monk realised it’s 20-year-old legacy technology was preventing it from delivering an omnichannel service.

Like most retail companies, Monk Office is experiencing a shift in digital transformation where customers want to be able to engage with them on multiple platforms, in multiple ways.

Seamless customer engagement

The Answer Company created a full warehouse management solution for Monk Office leveraging Sage X3 with integrated solutions from three Independent Software Vendors. Customers are now able to place orders in-store (powered by InfoPOS) or online (powered by commercebuild), while Sage X3 manages and delivers everything through the back office using Datalinx.
