The Brief: 
Oceans already had an existing brochure website that showcased their range of products, but it didn’t have any e-commerce capability. Rather than try and bolt-on e-commerce functionality to their existing custom built platform, they decided that what they needed was a new up-to-date website built using one of the latest e-commerce software solutions.
The Solution: 
After spending some time understanding the requirements that Oceans had for their first e-commerce website and the integration touch points that were needed with their back-office systems, we put forward a solution that involved using Drupal Commerce in conjunction with Apache Solr.
Technical highlights and/or The Result: 
  • Solr integration with autocomplete, fuzzy search and facets
  • Full Drupal Commerce integration
  • Product data import and export integration with Orderwise Stock Control & Order Processing Software
  • Mix mode SSL
  • Product and site data migration from old site using Migrate
  • Customer reviews
