Website Functions

By discovering and validating many years of the wholesale/ retail business and technical requirements and parameters; obtaining input from subject-matter experts; examining and recommending changes to current business practices; we have developed the following system (not limited to):

  • Home Page Navigation- featuring the companies’ several divisions/ product categories. Each division has its own sorting & navigational page, where customers can search & select products within that product category (allowing buyers to focus on the product category that they buy). All products, within each of the divisions, can be bought through the same site (if an owner of a store/ buyer is looking to buy multiple products sets).
  • Buy by the Case Pack- customers can purchase any quantity of case packs, but not individual units.
  • Tiered Pricing- discounted pricing based on the quantity of case packs the customer is willing to buy (each style has at least 5 different price variations).
  • “Close Out” Page- a separate tab in the home navigation, where customers can get the best deals on inventory we are looking to get rid of (based on higher quantity the customer has to buy).
  • Up to Date Inventory/ Inventory Management- using the Magento API and our inventory systems backend to send 2 way communications to & from the website; by automating (set at every half hour) updated available to sell inventory from our system to the Magento site, along with removing inventory from our system once a product is purchased on the site. Once a style is sold out, the product will automatically be removed/ disappear from the site; as soon as it is comes back in to stock, it will reappear as well.
  • Transferring Orders to Our Current System- once a customer places an order on the site, it gets transferred to our systems backend, and the order is shipped & handled just as our everyday operation.
  • Attribute Sets- determining different sets of key information/ details that correspond to each of the company’s’ products and divisions.
  • Importing Products- connecting the data/ product information that is already listed on our current system & transferring the selected information to our site (using the products UPC #).
  • Ticketing System- customers can submit comments, questions, concerns, etc. on the individual product page (if related to the product itself) or the “contact us” page (for general comments) and it will be sent to the appropriate department/ personal right away; we assign a task manager/ sales representative to handle/ process each and every account. A salesperson will respond to the customer via email, phone, etc. and will use the task management system to monitor the status of the customer’s order/ request (open, processing, complete, etc.).
  • Point System- accumulate points (1 point for every dollar spent) to retrive certain rewards such as free shipping all month, 30% off site wide and early access to new arrivals
  • Shipping Window- customers can select where & when they would like there order to go/ go out; the earliest ship date is the current date with a minimum cancel date (last day they would be willing to accept the shipment) of 10 days.
  • Automated Tracking #- once the order is shipped our system will automatically retrieve the tracking # and sent it out to the customer.
  • Customer Groups- a website admin can provide special privileges for certain customer groups; such as (not limited to) requirements to checkout, free shipping, selected products that they can/ can’t see (restricting licensed products from customers that are restricted to buy), minimum order quantities, etc.
  • Preferable Payment Terms- once we have a track record of several on time payments from a customer we can enable their account to check out without having to pay upfront and to have preferable payment terms.
  • Discounts- discounts can be applied for set customers groups, individual accounts, certain product categories, etc. If you have a long standing deal where you purchase a product for a certain price, and it is higher on the site, we can have that price change specifically to your account (where you will be the only customer to see that price).
  • Site Restrictions- by default, all users will be blocked from seeing the products from each of the division’s homepage. They will only be able to see the company’s homepage. Once they signup and are approved
