Business Situation

A leading global consumer package goods (CPG) company contacted Garvey for a complete e-commerce solution, including online ordering, warehousing, and distribution. Garvey then approached Maven Wave to develop a software solution that would integrate the back-end e-commerce processing with the front-end online ordering user experience.


  • Microsoft Commerce Server 2009.
  • Custom built API.
  • 25+ web methods.


  • The CPG company contracted with Garvey for two more significant projects.
  • The custom API opened more doors for Garvey for other clients who needed an e-commerce fulfillment solution.
  • It allowed them to penetrate a new market – companies that sell direct to consumers.
