DCC Energi is one of the leading energy companies with sales of energy products for both homes, businesses and agriculture. DCC Energi supply about 60,000 customers in Denmark in energy products as heating oil, diesel, lubricants, natural gas, electricity, coal, and wood pellets.
DCC Energi needed a new motivating corporate website with a user-friendly B2C webshop integrated to their Nordcap ERP system. DCC Energi also needed a way to ensure the visual identity throughout the website with a corporate color scheme and a uniform design.
The ecommerce solution had to integrate directly with their Nordcap ERP system for both products, customer details, orders and pricing, and the shop also had to provide the users with an advanced self-service system. Giving access to price-calculation, multiple delivery addresses and multiple oil tanks in each delivery address. Recent orders, account balances, payments, PDF order receipts, reordering tools etc.
The solution should also comply with individual custom requirements such as statistics for yearly use, estimated residual quantity for oil tanks and a system that confirms the validity of delivery addresses in accordance with DCC Energi's internal rules on the supply. Finally, the cart needed quantity mismatch validation and selectable delivery dates.
In addition, DCC Energi wanted to streamline processes in terms of reducing the number of orders per phone. The webdesign also had to be motivating and responsive for different browser-units/clients. It also had to meet marketing requirements for ease-of-use, and the shopping experience in particular – had to be user-friendly, fast and efficient in use.

"The new B2C ecommerce solution provides our private heating oil customers with the opportunity to place orders and to make online payment 24 hours a day. A possibility that fulfills one of our core values - flexibility. The customers also have access to their private billing and order history whenever needed, making them more independent of normal opening hours. At the same time the direct and touchless integration between Dynamicweb and our ERP system, gave us the opportunity to cut down some of the manual processes and by that we could focus “saved” resources in other areas."
