Cushions. Lots of Cushions.
Eyesore was contacted by a client with the goal of building a multi-functional, fully custom website to support their custom seat cushion manufacturing and distribution company. The website needed complex architecture to handle transactions from purchase all the way to delivery.
The client’s needs went beyond an ordinary WordPress site, so Eyesore built a custom site from the ground up, including the following functionalities:
- A custom seat cushion configuration tool and quote generator that allows customers to design their own cushion, choosing from multiple styles, sizes and over 2000 fabrics.
- Integration with an AS400 mainframe computer to create a workflow tool that coordinates transactions from ordering and invoicing to manufacturing and delivery.
- A cut sheet generator for every order that is sent to the manufacturing floor, so workers have the correct dimensions to cut every piece of fabric.
- An algorithm that integrates with the shipping provider to dynamically calculate the most cost effective way to combine multiple-piece orders for shipment.
With so many processes integrated into the website, the client has a lesser need for manpower to manage the minutia of the day-to-day, resulting in a larger profit margin and fewer errors. They’ve experienced exponential growth since the launch of the website and now have a thriving custom cushion empire!
