PureFormulas implemented Oracle Commerce to help grow its business by creating different commerce experiences for different customer segments.

With the migration to Oracle Commerce, PureFormulas is launching four new verticals: sports and fitness nutrition, pet health, beauty, and food. The retailer will also mine customer data, allowing for faster, more intelligent decision making. The Oracle Commerce implementation was completed with minimal impact on business teams, other than customer service representatives who will now process returns and order inquiries with the new tool.
