The client wanted a more robust e-commerce solution for their existing marketplace and the ability to add additional marketplaces and a digital magazine. The solution design required the ability to inter-link content and have intuitive navigation between the marketplaces and the magazine.
One challenge was accurately transferring the current inventory to the new e-commerce site. Also, the platform needed to accommodate for up to 1M in future inventory without impacting the platform’s performance. Creating automation to upload inventory from different sources with different formats was also a challenge.
The delaPlex Solution
delaPlex rebuilt one and created two more sites from the ground up as an integrated platform for the e-commerce marketplaces, a digital magazine, and the capability to add future marketplaces. The design allows users to easily navigate between the magazine and marketplaces. A dynamic inventory upload solution was developed that accommodates various incoming formats from different vendors. Further, SEO was incorporated at all levels to ensure the client’s marketing efforts were maximized
