Centrica is a British multinational energy and services company with its headquarters in Windsor, Berkshire.
Centrica wanted to apply the rich experience traditionally expect from B2C companies to their own B2B experience. This meant building a new window into the business that would attract and nurture leads and make marketing automation easy.
In an effort to achieve an ambitious global rollout, Centrica needed to build seven regional sites in less than six months. If that wasn’t challenging enough, Centrica also needed to consolidate over 15 customer relationship management tools and five content management systems into one platform.
In partnership with IBM iX, Centrica worked with Acquia to set up configuration for its Drupal CMS. This included integration with Pardot and Salesforce. With Acquia, Centrica was able to execute multi-site capability and governance with Acquia Cloud Site Factory.
