John McPheters, Vice President of Business Development at Flight Club:

“We have many challenges with our current eCommerce platform. The lack of live inventory is possibly the biggest problem, but there are many others. We're poised to evolve into a much larger commerce entity, once we make the jump. The current platform has been dramatically holding us back from it.

Why did you choose Vaimo?

We had already decided to go with a US based provider, the 25th Hour. Last minute, we reviewed Vaimo's offerings and found that there were flexibilities on the sites Vaimo has developed that greatly enhanced consumer presentation. After going through the Bjornborg.com site and seeing how the cart functioned, along with some of the unique solution presentations on Magento platform, we knew we needed to take a closer look. This was the beginning of our move to Vaimo as a provider.” 

Why did you choose Magento?

“We like Magento’s flexibility, references and the general development of the platform. We also love that it's open-source and allows for as much customization and flexibility as Vaimo can muster.
