DeVita Wholesale Online Shop
In 2016 the Brest clothing manufacturer, Devita, developed a website for wholesale customers. The task is to develop a catalog, get the late sizes and the latest models from the manufacturer's warehouse, prices and availability of ready-made clothes. The client can find information in a personal account, where the manager works with personal prices and conditions. The project should be developed on the basis of content management system Bitrix and 1C: ERP 8.2 (Enterprise Resource Planning), as a program for working with the warehouse and the customer loyalty system.
After the first meeting with Devita we decided to try to implement the project under the program of support and development of small and medium- sized business of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. The bank's program gives first-time entrepreneurs the opportunity to receive a subsidy for business development.
The abiatec company is a European Bank consultant and develops software products for the bank’s partners. The department of business analysis abiatec analyzed the features of the client's business, prepared a technical specification for the European Bank and identified the main stages of software development.
- Online catalog site as a tool for working with wholesale partners;
- Partner’s personal account, client authorization and accounting of individual parameters (discount, price, stock status, order status);
- Integration with 1C 8.2.
The development of a unique design for Devita website
The catalog of the Devita collections was implemented on the standard functionality of the Bitrix CMS "catalog" module. Bitrix takes into account the SKU within the position of item, the unique size and colour. Authorized users of the site see in real-time environment the availability of a unique SKU in the company's warehouse and can add goods to the shopping cart. Prices in the product card are set individually for each user, this opportunity allows the company's customers to receive unique sales offers depending on the set discount and order terms.
The opportunities for personal user cabinet
The main feature of the site is that the user gets access to all the features of the site only after the registration and confirmation of his account by the Devita administrator. The business processes of company did not allow using the standard Bitrix functionality in full and our programmers had to modify it.
The module "My Account" allows you to see the history of customer orders, track order status: in processing, edited, ready to pay, shipped, etc. The user in the personal account controls the actual status of the order, makes changes and confirms it. The user pays for a confirmed order and exchanges accounting documents with the manager through a personal account.
