Julia B.'s unique challenges were:
- Needed to source and integrate an e-Commerce platform that could handle a highly robust B2C product set with complex and custom luxury products.
- Needed to enhance the usability of selecting custom monogram options for both front end customers and administrators taking orders by phone.
- Needed to allow the administrator to apply different discounts for retail, wholesale and designer customer groups.
Platform(s) / Solution:
- Over the course of several discovery discussions, Accorin and Julia B identified the specific functional and user interface requirements and ended up selecting Magento.
- Custom designs were generated addressing each of the UX requirements, with a focus on enhanced drop down menus and location placement icons.
- Custom front end and back end functionality was built to allow the hierarchical flow of choices on the front end and the ability for the administrator to create discounts for the varying customer groups.
