SunTec Helps a Leading UK Based Shoe Manufacturing Company Seamlessly Migrate Their Ecommerce Website from .net To Drupal
A leading UK based shoe manufacturer partnered with SunTec recently to migrate their eCommerce website to Drupal.
- Chicago, IL (1888PressRelease) September 23, 2016 - Founded in 1860 the client is a leading everyday footwear brand and have been selling over 40 million pairs of shoes each year in over 30 countries across the globe.
The client's main source of revenue comes from their eCommerce website. They had once before tried to migrate their eCommerce website from .net to Drupal. However, the migration could not be successfully implemented. As a result, sales orders on client's website were out of sync with their QuickBooks Enterprise software.
The accounts department was facing difficultly in tracking the orders, as the orders were being received in THub 24 hours after they were actually placed. Merchandizing team failed to ship the products on time. Popular payment gateways were not integrated with the website. The client's eCommerce website performance was slow, which was affecting user experience in a big way.
The project team at SunTec began with analyzing the client's existing site and identified core issues related to the shopping cart structure.
As the client aimed to establish a better enterprise presence by driving sophisticated content publishing workflows - to market to new customers together with building a social community, the team decided to move the existing site based on Ubercart to Drupal Commerce.
The team of developers and programmers at SunTec wrote customized Drupal modules that can effectively sync customer orders in THub and also QuickBooks. THub acts as a bridge that connects store orders with QuickBooks. SunTec customized the code in such a manner that Drupal back-end could sync with THub immediately. This helped the client to have real time information about customer orders and also made accounting as well as shipping much simpler.
The company recommended the client to switch their website to a new server. As soon as the recommendations were accepted, client's website hosting was moved to Amazon E2 server and the database was moved to Amazon RDS, which significantly improved the site's loading speed and performance. SunTec integrated PayPal Pro API into client's website allowing customers to make payment through PayPal account.
The client experienced an increase in sales volume by over 30% once the core issues related to shopping cart structure were fixed. SunTec successfully leveraged compatible technology and helped the client in effectively managing orders and provided customers with great user experience by reworking the workflow and user interface.
