Forum logo

Forum Energy Technologies (FET) is an international oilfield products company, supplying the drilling, subsea, completions, production and infrastructure sectors of the oil and natural gas industry.  It was formed in the summer of 2010 in a five-way merger among Forum Oilfield Technologies, Triton Group, Subsea Services International, Global Flow Technologies and Allied Technology. 

Recent additions to their catalog include Global Tubing, one of the leading coiled tubing providers in the world and Global Heat Transfer, an industry leader in radiators and cooling equipment for the oilfield.

Forum’s headquarters are in Houston, Texas with manufacturing and distribution facilities located around the world.

Case for Change

Forum Energy Technologies (FET) had a need to create a B2B ecommerce portal for their pipe, valve and fitting (PVF) solutions, allowing clear visibility of online inventory and pricing, while also integrating to the newly implemented Vision Warehouse Management software, something the existing portal had no capability of doing.  FET had a deadline to meet for going live with the selected platform, therefore it was paramount that the chosen solutions partner had the ability to react quickly to the demands of the business.
