We at Sagacity Software had a great opportunity of working on an interesting project where we had to create an online presence for our client. The client required an online store front to sell his services to customers and capitalize on the benefits e-presence has to offer. We used “Shopify” to set up the e-commerce portal. Shopify was leveraged well to execute the task. In the process our team could get good hands - on experience with the nitty-gritties of Shopify. The online portal was set up sequence by sequence and could be executed within a narrow time frame.
The client operates in the activity & adventure based tourism business catering to their local as well as global clients seeking a wholesome travelling experience.
The crucial responsibility of designing the online portal effectively and in a short span of time was competently shouldered by the team of experts at Sagacity Softwares. We decided to use a relatively new but recognized platform, Shopify, to build the online platform for the enterprise. Shopify, has a convenience of editing the HTML, CSS tags, create payment gateways, customized storefronts and much more beyond description. Sagacity Software’s team began with a basic understanding of the platform, getting accustomed to it and started creating the portal in a stepwise manner. Shopify, apart from the HTML and CSS mark ups, uses Liquid- a special programming language to insert dynamic content into the website. Advantages of Liquid are that these are SEO driven searches, and serves a customized experience for various visitors of the portal. A payment gateway was set up which enabled the client to accept payments from worldwide credit cards without a need for creating any third party account. Another feature of our work was supplementing the portal with responsive web design (RWD) or responsive theme. It allowed the portal to be navigated smoothly across various screen sizes, browsers or devices. The essential areas of the portal, such as ‘ABOUT US’, ‘CART’ etc., could be browsed optimally. With Shopify, we could reduce the speed time to market considerably and the 1st version of the website was up and running within 25 days.
The client was very delighted with the work, the dedicated and committed team members and the results of the endeavor. This led to increase in client’s faith and trust in us.
