Agiliway had to attend to a number of tasks to create a fully functional website and improve user experience with it. In particular, there was a need to enhance
Performance: additional technical solutions were needed to make sure the large catalogues do not slow down the website.
Hierarchy of products: spare parts may have the same titles, but are different for different models of vehicles; what is more, the same spare parts may have different titles depending on the region of use. It was necessary to consider all these specifics and create complex product catalogs.
Search: the search had to pull up the variants based on unique VIN or frame numbers, which are commonly used in the industry to distinguish between hundreds of thousands of spare parts.
Structure: there was a need to make changes to the structure of the shop adding additional menus and pages;
Administrative control: Although an e-store allowed to easily manage the information on products and organize sales, adding extra information in the form of a blog post or a notice required attracting a professional programmer.
Agiliway has managed to implement all the necessary changes allowing a giant enterprise successfully work via a popular e-commerce platform – Oxid eSales. Our engineers have carried out the following steps:
Resolved all performance issues increasing the speed and improving user experience with the website;
Built catalogues with a comprehensive hierarchy for hundreds of thousands of products;
Optimized the search so that products can be searched by various titles and last digits oftheir VIN codes;
Developed a custom page with a number of users’ wish lists. Such solution allows users to have a separate wish list for each of their cars and easily access all the items they need to buy or have bought for each of their cars;
Rewrote the modules of filters and menus for them to display on the pages of individual product;
Created custom widgets for presenting news and updates. Using the widgets, admins of the website can easily change and add new content without breaking the layout of the page
Although it has been a challenging task to make Oxid e-shop serve all the needs of the giant in the automotive industry, Agiliway has managed to implement all the changes and make the website highly performing, convenient to manage and serving all the needs of the company’s sales managers, wholesalers and retail buyers.
