For a company which deals in the business of designing, sourcing and selling fashion accessories, the production process for them needs to be kept at a pace with consumer demand. Moreover, with more and more consumers exploring the online ecommerce stores for making purchases, presence of a virtual and well established ecommerce store is of primary importance. This also becomes important given the target customer base of the company which is sports fans and university/college students. While our client has already given the surety for adopting SYSPRO as backend, for that they needed some dedicated software developers for integrating the ecommerce site with the SYSPRO ERP back end with a process management system. Then, ValueCoders engaged the services of a senior software developer proficient in ASP.NET technology to work on this project and help build a middleware work order system that would synchronously communicate between the SYSPRO ERP and the ecommerce site at the front end.
When they hired ValueCoders, we had to address to the following tasks:
While developing, we faced various challenges including the following ones:
Our web app developers at ValueCoders had overcome these challenges with their innovative ideas and technical expertise.
Creating an attractive landing page for the eCommerce site is a must to bring more traffic to the site. To ensure it with the client.
The e-commerce application designed and developed by ValueCoders which takes in input from the SQL server database and manipulates it into the User interface. This data is then received by the SYSPRO Application server which helps integrating the ecommerce application with SYSPRO.
The SYSPRO ERP at the backend consists of a number of Business objects and commands and several methods for playing with the Business object. We use various Business objects to Query or Retrieve or Build Sales, Purchase or Product in the application. A business object only understands XML. It receives its requests via XML and returns the results in the same way. So we use Xml serialization for passing the data to the SYSPRO.
The e.net solution interface contained within the SYSPRO application server enables the ecommerce application for accessing the stored data in SYSPRO database without having to compromise the data security and integrity. The modified data as received from the ecommerce application is again stored in the SQL Server database.
