Access Hardware
Access Hardware, a Melbourne-based, national architectural door hardware and security solutions provider with a rich history dating back to 1975, faced a pivotal moment in their online retail evolution. They entrusted Magenable with the task of transitioning their online store from a legacy software stack to a contemporary ecommerce platform.

The Challenge: As Access Hardware expanded its presence across Australia, their evolving needs became increasingly complex. They sought a comprehensive solution that could effortlessly manage company accounts and credits, streamline in-store pickup across multiple branches, oversee an extensive product catalog complete with intricate technical details, and seamlessly integrate with their ERP system. Additionally, they placed a high priority on delivering an excellent user experience, demanding advanced search functionality and sophisticated layered navigation to ensure a user-friendly interface for their valued customers.

The Solution: After extensive analysis, the choice was clear: Adobe Commerce Cloud with a tailored B2B package. It was the solution that best aligned with Access Hardware's intricate needs. While Adobe Commerce Cloud's out-of-the-box features met many of these requirements, some demanded a more bespoke approach. This is where the strength of the Adobe/Magento ecosystem and our expertise came into play.

Customisations: To meet Access Hardware's most unique needs, we developed customized extensions. These included specialized product classification, support for specific pricing methods, establishing customer-branch relationships, defining stock display rules, and extending the capabilities of Adobe Commerce REST API.

A Collaborative Success: The success of this project was built on the foundation of teamwork. Magenable worked closely with Access Hardware's in-house IT team, ensuring a seamless transition to the new ecommerce platform.

Fabrice Boucherat
Marketing and Merchandise Manager,
Dahlsens Building Centres
We have worked with several web development agencies in the past. Every time we felt that we were low priority for them and there was no proactive input into our projects. We’ve been pleasantly surprised by Magenable’s approach. We get prompt service. Projects go smoothly.
Most importantly, as experts in the web space, they advise us on the latest tech trends and are not afraid to challenge our thinking. They’ve also been great at keeping us close to our web analytics and what it means for our digital strategy. I look forward to having many more years of mutually beneficial collaboration with Magenable.

Bondi Sands
We couldn’t be happier with Magenable’s level of service. Alex always feels like an extension of the Bondi Sands team and is always available to help support our business objectives – both from a strategy and execution perspective. No project is ever too big or too small!
Highly recommend Magenable to any business looking for Magento specialists to help scale their eCommerce business.
Kovi Gordon
Queen of Tickets
My company recently employed services of Magenable to conduct a full website audit on our site. We could not have made a better investment. Alex first worked with us over a few days to get a thorough understanding of our business and our landscape, which is very often overlooked. The report we received at the end was very comprehensive and really data driven.
Important that the findings were not trivial improvements but were all based on increasing sales or improving security. I strongly recommend this to any business that relies on their website for sales and feel that they are not doing everything to their best of their ability. Alex and his team will surely find many improvements that will pay dividends over and over again once implemented.
Stu McIntosh
Founder and CEO,
Alex and his team has been by far the best dev team we have worked with. They are quick, courteous and fully transparent. I couldn't recommend their services any higher.
Thanks for your amazing service!
