A reliable, fast, and user-friendly web store for a leading global manufacturer and distributor of high-quality shower bases, shower and tub doors, shower enclosures etc. It includes a custom product configurator and a safe payment system which allows visitors to make purchases directly from their user accounts.
QArea was asked to develop an interactive, user-friendly, and reliable web online store for a leading global manufacturer and distributor of high-quality shower and tub doors, enclosures, and acrylics bases. The app is focused on the ability to select an appropriate item that will ultimately match the user’s desires. It has an intuitive and easy-to-use interface with the set of features which allows visitors to find needed products just in few clicks.
It also includes personal user accounts and allows visitors to purchase products directly from their personal account. The payment system has a fully-fledged GUI and provides secure and fast data transferring. The online store has a unique customizable configurator that allows users to determine the desired product according to their personal wishes (color, size, material, etc.).
Our development and testing teams had to provide the complete e-commerce solution from prototyping and design, to the API development and a comprehensive QA at each development stage. One of the big challenges was to create a unique and intuitive item configurator along the robust order processing system on the server side.
We needed to set up a server for receiving and processing orders and implement it into the WordPress CMS. The client part of the site had to be intuitive and easy-to-use while the fast performance of the online store played a crucial role in the decision-making. Since the web application had to store a huge amount of data and face high loads, we had to pay great attention to protecting user’s personal information from any data leakage.
QArea’s teams were to develop a reliable and user-friendly online store that would meet all the client requirements and expectations. We decided to use Angular framework since the interface of the application had to be intuitive, while the overall performance had to be speedy. This choice allowed us to develop graphic elements that are user-friendly, but at the same time with the great performance capacity. To develop the API, we used optimal code practices and implemented the most appropriate architectural solutions. Because of the clean code and well-thought-out application architecture we can quickly extend the app’s functionality without any unexpected problems.
For the administration side, we used WordPress. It allows administrators to fill the web store with new products and configure them with custom options. Also, we implemented PrestaShop eCommerce solution for reliable order processing. Since the application requires continuous operations with user data, we used comprehensive QA methods, including GUI, security, configuration, compatibility, and stress testing.
At the moment, the online store is at the production stage. It works quickly and has an attractive and intuitive design that allows visitors to effortlessly serf around the website. Our client is satisfied with our teams and the quality of QArea services, so we have been working together for more than 5 years. We provide comprehensive support and maintenance of the online store and ensure the new functionality is quickly implemented using the best code practices.
