AMP-Cherokee, a leading provider of CEMS and EPA Manual Method stack testing rental equipment for air quality source monitoring, wanted their eCommerce system to enable their customers to select environmental testing equipment rental items for a specific rental period in their Volusion eCommerce platform shopping cart.
The Volusion platform does not offer this type of functionality; Indies eCommerce was tasked with the development of a custom eCommerce functionality.
Prior to the development AMP-Cherokee customers had to call the company directly to calculate price of the rental of a particular piece of testing equipment.
AMP-Cherokee wanting to be an industry leader, of companies providing sales and rental of environmental testing equipment, needed a way for their customers to take advantage of their rental services, using the online functionality of their website, which Their current eCommerce platform did not allow. The goal of pursuing the services of a custom eCommerce web development company for the development of a custom eCommerce functionality; had become necessary.
Previously, to have the price calculated for renting a particular piece of testing equipment, AMP-Cherokee customers had to contact the company by phone; and an employee had to manually create a quote before one could be given. Volusion eCommerce platform was not set up to reflect the needed changes, and as a result a custom shopping cart also needed to be developed.
Due to the limitations of the Volusion eCommerce Platform, certain modifications to the existing shopping cart needed to be made. A custom eCommerce equipment rental system with all of the features desired by the company was created, in order for them to be able to achieve their objective.
All of the current Volusion functionality and system features needed to be available to both AMP-Cherokee and its customers, after the implementation of the eCommerce Custom Development.
The default website needed to maintain its Volusion system response times, after the eCommerce Custom Development was implemented.
Their custom eCommerce Website development needed to be able to handle both Rental and Retail functionality.
Customization of the existing eCommerce template that had already been provided by Volusion to AMP-Cherokee needed to be considered.
Site-wide Pricing - needed to be visible to account holders only. “Login” had to appear in the price fields for non-account visitors.
“Indies eCommerce was a perfect choice for our custom Volusion website. We needed an online catalog for our extensive rental equipment, which wasn’t available from other Volusion vendors. Indies eCommerce created our online presence and provided us with direction on basic edits for additions and maintenance. They have also been a solid support resource for changes and problem solving, which we continue to utilize to this day."
