About Generac Generac Power Systems provides a private e-commerce portal for its industrial product dealers. Portal functionality includes quotations and ordering, project management features, documentation libraries, and more. Much of the site is dynamically driven based on integrations to the ERP and other systems. Generac previously used a combination of custom, open-source and commercial 3rd party components to provide document interaction capabilities to the end-user. However, these components were limited in features and presented numerous performance and maintenance issues on the web servers.
