Few of us carry sabers at our hips anymore, but when Böker first started producing blades in Germany in 1829, their first product was the saber, a response to the political restlessness of their era. Within one year, Böker was producing 2,000 pieces a week. As their tool and cutlery lines began to grow, the family expanded across the ocean to New York, Canada, and Mexico. Production ceased during WWII but was restored not long after the war ended. Böker USA was sold several times throughout the 1960s and 70s, and in 1986, Böker USA, Inc. was officially established in Denver.
Böker USA’s current inventory includes everything from razors, to throwing knives, to axes and swords. With such a wide variety of inventory—and an international presence—Böker’s systems needed to communicate instantaneously to ensure service stayed sharp. For that, they turned to ROI to integrate their Sage 100 and Shopware ecommerce systems through IN-SYNCH, and they didn’t just integrate once. After Böker first added IN-SYNCH and saw how well integration kept customer and product information as well as orders and tracking information flowing, they updated platforms and integrated with IN-SYNCH a second time.
