• Northern Ground Presents M.S.O.E. "Magento Ecommerce & Integration"

Milwaukee School of Engineering

The Gist:

MSOE was referred to us by one of our clients and they were in need of e-commerce help. By the time we were called, they were far into a full website redesign with another shop. The new site centered around a Jive Community platform and WordPress CMS so cross-platform communication was key. Because we were hired late in the project to implement a rich e-commerce experience that didn't disrupt the established user experience of the site, we decided to just nudge things over a bit.

  • Magento Community eCommerce
  • WordPress
  • PingFederate Integration
  • Jive
  • HTML5
  • CSS3

What made it tricky (fun):

  • An IA/UX challenge to fit the experience into the left rail
  • Single sign-on integration with the existing MSOE federated identity management system
  • Complex payment gateway integration
  • Multiple department heads requiring custom workflow


We all need a superhero once in a while! Northern Ground saved the day for us when we needed it most.
