E-Commerce Development


 
Now that a plan is in place, it is time to begin implementation.

If you have an existing e-commerce platform, we suggest doing a data migration.  This will cut down significantly on data-entry.

While the migration is in progress, we start developing the user interface and user experience.  These are some of the most important aspects of your e-commerce website.  Users have a higher chance of converting to customers with appealing design and ease of use. 

The default application configuration is robust, but if you have custom workflow needs, we will start programming these customizations into the system functionality.

You may want to integrate your existing software ecosystem to work with your e-commerce website to help automate your workflow.  We can program integrations to link your back-office processes.  This will synchronize your data so that you aren’t managing it across multiple programs manually. 

Once all the programming is done and approved by the client, we will begin importing all of your data.

Quality assurance is used throughout the entire development of your e-commerce website to catch any bugs as early as possible.

Design Your Site will also train you on using the features and functionality of your new E-Commerce solution.
