The new sales platform was established on a copyright system to manage online store. CMS prepared by Media4U is flexible due to its modular design. This enabled the implementation of individual solutions tailored to the needs of Endo.
Together with the customer we also developed the concept of trilateral exchange of product data, orders and inventory levels between CMS, accounting and warehouse system Magic and the SAP system used by Arvato company to implement and shipping orders. This allowed us to create an efficient mechanism, which enables some processes optimisation in the company. Additionally, the system is in communication with SARE, passing on information about subscribers with data to enable creating a personalized offer.
The application is maintained on Media4U servers so it is constantly monitored in terms of performance. Cluster solutions guarantee the availability of services at the highest level.
a) Analytical stage:
A number of meetings and arrangements helped to prepare a list of goals, challenges and the threats that were associated with not only the implementation of a new platform for online sales, but also the efficient transfer of historical data about customers and orders. Thanks to such cooperation we were able to establish functional and technical specifications that was the source of knowledge about implemented solutions. In the process of creating the document there were involved representatives of the brand Endo, and a Media4U dedicated project team, which was responsible for the implementation of the deployment.
b) Design stage:
Design work began by defining the objectives of the store offer presentation, navigation and operation of various tools to increase conversion. These findings became the basis for the preparation of the template store.

Visual design store takes into account the strict branding guidelines by Endo. At this stage the decisions about infrastructure were made, where the new Endo webshop will operate.
c) Implementation stage
Implementation works were carried out according to a strict schedule, and the project was divided into stages. The first part was to prepare the front-end views and to design the service database. Then, the implementation team worked in parallel on new functional elements. The different steps were verified by the customer. After the completion of major development work, the service was tested by our quality assurance department and the customer. In the same time we were preparing to migrate data from a previous site.
After analyzing the website traffic, Endo decided that the whole process to start the new service must take place at night, as most traffic usually was in the morning. We created a detailed schedule, that described step by step the actions to perform - because of that the whole process ran smoothly and according to plan.
The Endo sales platform is constantly evolving - tasks are carried out to continuously improve productivity of the webshop.
