The client, AMP-Cherokee, wanted an application that would enable their customers to select environmental-testing equipment rental items for a specific rental period in the Volusion shopping cart.
The Volusion platform does not offer this type of functionality; Nexus Software Systems was tasked with the development of a custom application.
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 wants to be an industry leader, of companies providing sales and rental of environmental testing equipment. Their current situation did not allow their customers to take advantage of their rental services, using the online functionality of their website. The goal of pursuing the services of a custom web development company for the development of a custom application; has therefore 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. The existing Volusion shopping cart 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 Platform, certain modifications to the existing shopping cart needed to be made; therefore, a custom rental system with all of the features desired by the company; was created, in order for them to be able to attain their goals and objectives.
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 holder only. “Login” had to appear in the price fields for non-account visitors.
With the development and implementation of this unique, enhanced, and highly-functional application; customers are now be able to easily and conveniently determine the cost of their rental equipment, directly on AMP-Cherokee's website.
This application provides functionality that enable their customers the ability to choose the duration of the rental period; and then calculate the price using a multi-option date-range calculator.
