eCommerce Presentation - Watco Case Study: At Margento's inaugural Meet Magento UK event, our colleague Barry held a presentation together with our client Alex from Watco about our complex eCommerce project with them. Watco has multiple brands and eCommerce sites across the world, which means that the single instance of Magento Enterprise, which is the sole eCommerce platform for all of Watco's web shops, has to handle different languages, currencies, tax rules and the like.
