Project Scope

JP Corry aimed to launch an attractive, customer-focused eCommerce website, designed for both current and future needs. Key features included easy usability, catering to diverse users, and high integration capabilities, all within a tight deadline.

The main challenge was integrating the website with JP Corry's stock/pricing system, focusing on:

    1. Product Catalogue Management: Automating the upload of 6,000 products into the CMS.

    2. Quote Service: Enabling real-time quotes for users, tracked within a user dashboard.

    3. Existing Account Management: Supporting existing customers with personalised account pricing on quotes, while driving new business.

The Solution

We began by integrating JP Corry's bespoke ERP data with the Kentico eCommerce product database, a complex task due to differences in how products were internally catalogued versus customer preferences. Our UX and UI teams collaborated with JP Corry and its customers to redesign the product structure for Kentico.

Next, we enhanced the customer purchasing experience with a quote tool for instant product quotes.

Additionally, we introduced a "Click and Collect" feature, enabling customers to easily pick up items with fixed prices from their shopping cart when available.
