Art Frame Direct is based in Orlando, Florida and deals with retailers, art dealers, interior designers and private-label manufacturers across the globe. The company offers wholesales antique-style decorative accessories, framed art and mirrors, sculpture, lighting and furniture. Art Frame Direct ships from its distribution centers. The company decided to extend its Windows-based JD Edwards OneWorld ERP system using the LANSA Commerce Edition. This move was taken to provide customers with an online ordering and inquiry solution. LANSA took about 30 days to deliver the website, which was created according to the customizations required by the company. Art Frame Direct now has a secure and visually appealing website that sits on top of JD Edwards without duplicating data. This LANSA web extension enables the JD Edwards solution further although JD Edwards wasn't built with eCommerce in mind. This website can be accessed by authorized distributors with a public and password-protected access. Public access allows users to browse the catalog and view items. Also, authorized users can view prices and order goods. This implies that partners of the company can show their customers items on the website without revealing the cost. This works for interior designers and small shops with lack of space to display all items. This website has over 10,000 items that are divided into 12 main categories and sub categories that were already defined in JD Edwards and directly re-used by the site.
