The NP Group specializes in custom e-commerce development for sophisticated commerce applications. While many think of e-commerce as a catalog, shopping cart and traditional check-out process, e-commerce can take on many shapes and styles. Complex products, bespoke transaction types and specialized inventory management and fulfillment lead the world's biggest brands to custom e-commerce applications.
Special Considerations for Your Commerce Application
Custom e-commerce application development follows a similar script to other types of web development projects. However, there are a few more considerations that must be contemplated:
- Inventory Management:
E-commerce can include 1 product or 1 million. Each with it's own variables, versions or combinations. Custom applications can be built to either manage this challenge locally, or integrate to in-house inventory systems.
- User Experience:
E-commerce requires clean, concise user experiences that focus on easy navigation, effective searching and browsing and seamless execution of transactions.
Transactions require many considerations. How are payments processed? How is inventory updated? How are notifications managed? These, plus a multitude of other factors, constitute an e-commerce transaction.
- Order Fulfillment:
Custom systems can manage the entire process of order fulfillment, or be built to integrate seamlessly to custom or licensed systems utilized throughout the enterprise.
Reporting need not be complex. One of the benefits of a custom approach is your ability, as the client, to dictate what reports are of most value to you.
- Scaling & Redundancy:
An e-commerce app must be a few things. Safe, secure, redundant and scalable are key components of a successful and trustworthy commerce application.
