Case Study / Lira Clothing
A fast growing clothing company with many celebrity endorsers was looking to expand its sales efforts online. A new eCommerce solution was sought which would provide for easy UI customization, social networking integration, and inventory management. Budget was a concern since this was a new strategy for the company; previously they relied solely upon traditional retail.
“ Using Microsoft technologies for an ecommerce solution was a great fit for this client. ”
A variety of .NET based solutions were searched and an open source .NET solution called nopCommerce was selected as the base platform. This solution provided the baseline functionality required for the ecommerce solution. UI analysis and design, configuration and customizations were completed. Social networking, styling, product preview views, and templates were the basis for our development work. A merchant account was set up with Authorize.NET and seamless integration during the checkout process was accomplished.
After a few weeks the company was able to establish its online eCommerce presence which resulted in an notable increase in sales. The new features were so easy to manage that it allowed the business users to change and edit product views and inventory at will. This also served as a stepping stone for the company to integrate their eCommerce platform with their billing and inventory applications.
