Creative process

Design
  1. 150

    hours of analysis and design

  2. 60+

    developed interfaces including mobile view

Design was perhaps the decisive stage of the project. It was our time to comprehend and structure the customer's needs and functional requirements. To that end, the team studied the customer's subject matter in depth, analyzed the company's business processes, mapped and analyzed the competition, and benchmarked the industry's best practices

Thus, we were able to create a prototype that showcases the project's impressive functionality, informative interfaces, and ease of use. A detailed statement of work was made regarding the design of an online store.

This stage produced an effective solution and ensured great post-launch performance.

Design and makeup

Design concept and the pages that followed matched the style of the customer's corporate website that was in process at the same time. In the face of stringent requirements, the team has been able to design an online store that looks nice and is not overwhelming.

Focus was also made on the mobile view: the design templates are made with the market in mind, and in today's market, phones and tablets represent 60% of all traffic.

When making the pages, the team used technologies that can produce an adaptive website that is easy to use on any device with any screen resolution; it displays everything properly in all popular browsers on all popular operating systems.

Development
  1. 5

    top-notch developers created a high-quality product

  2. 600+

    hours of development and testing

Several high-tech solutions implemented in the project make it truly stand out. We'd like to focus on special features that support the Customer's untrivial business processes:

  • Exchanging orders made on the website and creating suborders from them
  • Bilateral exchange of counterparties with the accounting system in real time (crucial for the customer's business process)
These solutions have a specific technical feature: orders and users are handled by an add-on to the standard Bitrix exchange, which processes any XML files in the customer-approved format, rather than standard CommerceML files. File upload is standard; non-standard format processing begins when a 1C query specifies the required XML file format (order or user file). Thus, all information (item names, units, discounts, etc.) in users' orders can be managed entirely from 1C.
Personal account

We developed the Personal Account service where users can:

  • Track order status;
  • Get documentation for each order;
  • View and print receipts after paying the order online;
  • etc
Recalculations on the go

This function is important in the construction industry. Detailed product card recalculates measurement units of products so that the buyer can find how much of a product they need, in the units they use.
