Alpha Industries has a rich military history and now manufactures and sells rugged military-inspired flight jackets, bombers, field coats, field jackets, parkas and leather jackets for men, women, and children. For their next ecommerce experience, the Alpha team was obsessed with providing customers with a site that is secure, fast, and responsive, while ensuring that navigation is clear and simple, product imagery and the information is visible and legible, and the online customer journey is optimized.
“Oracle recommended McFadyen as their most experienced partner and they lived up to that billing. Not only in delivering a great ecommerce solution on-time and on-budget, but also in understanding our goals, crafting unique solutions, and enabling our team for years of success,” added Matthew Pantoja.
During the four-month project, McFadyen customized OCC with a modern responsive user experience that features easy searching and navigation, user-generated content, alternate payments, analytics, and many other features. Merchandisers can easily manage the catalog, promotions, and storefront with the OCC Admin console while call center agents were also enabled with customizations to the OCC Agent Console.
“McFadyen Digital was honored to work with a great brand like Alpha Industries and to enable their vision for innovative customer experience with a flexible and scalable cloud platform like OCC,” stated President Tom McFadyen. McFadyen’s onsite team included a project manager, business analyst, architect, and user experience professionals. They were supported by near-shore & off-shore teams from McFadyen’s Brazil and India offices. “During our 20 years implementing large-scale ecommerce solutions we’ve optimized the global delivery model to ensure on-time quality delivery while minimizing costs,” added Tom McFadyen.

About Alpha Industries
Since 1959 Alpha Industries has designed high quality, military-inspired outerwear that remains true to its heritage. The authenticity of the brand’s top styles, the MA-1 Flight Jacket and the M-65 Field Coat, were born of purpose as a result of the first contracts awarded by the U.S. Department of Defense over 50 years ago. Even today both styles, among many others, have kept Alpha Industries in the forefront of military fashion offering new fits, silhouettes, colors, and detailing. Available in department stores, specialty shops, and fashion retailers around the globe, the brand also collaborates with top brands and designers.
