Labels Online was operating a legacy site built on a proprietary platform that could no longer support the current business requirements or its plans to grow. Absolute were tasked with building a new Magento site from the ground up, to enable the client to offer label personalisation in addition to their stock products.
The team at Absolute provided a UX-led design approach, which resulted in a bespoke theme that could facilitate the custom functionality the site required. This included the following features.
These are configured to allow the admin to position the text for the label. In turn, this updates the product image so the customer can preview their changes before buying. Following approval, the personalised label is generated and saved to file, so an admin can easily view it on the order. This is also generated as a PDF that can then be used to print the personalised label - providing a streamlined and scalable workflow.
A form is used on the front-end for customers via CArt2Quote to submit a request for a custom product, and the admin then uses the quotation functionality to generate a quote for the customer. This can then be managed within the core workflow of Magento (i.e., as a standard order). The process also allows for the resulting custom products/labels to be placed within a private category for each customer, for quick reference and streamlined ordering.
A pre-existing module was installed and modified to work with Elastic search. This allows a customer to more easily add products to their cart by entering the SKU or quantity manually, or by uploading a CSV.
