Ecommerce Websites (Eshops)

eshop

Lets Define it!

'Electronic commerce', commonly known as 'e-commerce' or 'e-comm', is the buying and selling of product or service over electronic systems such as the Internet and other computer network. Electronic commerce draws on such technologies as electronic funds transfer, supply chain management, Internet marketing, online transaction processing, electronic data interchange (EDI), inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems. Modern electronic commerce typically uses the World Wide Web at least at one point in the transaction's life-cycle, although it may encompass a wider range of technologies such as e-mail, mobile devices and telephones as well.

 

What do we offer?

Our company has successfully developed a number of successfull eshops, that are managed online by our clients, through the web based administration panel and/or through automatic updating from the client's desktop accounting / stock management software.

We dont just create another eshop for you but we create an online shop that can really sell through a user friendly interface to clients around the world.

This though can only be achieved when the client is investing effort in the eshop by updating on a daily basis his products, prices, descriptions and special offers.

Antici! Online E-commerce Solution Methodology

The process of creating an e-shop by our Web Developing Team is the following:

Starting point
Project Manager meets up with the client and analyze in simple non-technical terms what needs to be done and how the design of the e-shopwill be. This is done for each page and for each element the functions that it must perform (eg drop down menus, photo sliders rotation time etc) and at the end of the meeting we have an agreed specifications document, which states all the functions that will be performed by the website, as well as the workflow of the website in cases where we need extended functionality like customer login, e-shop etc.
Specifications
Project Manager analyzes the specifications document to the web programmers and designers in technical terms and explains fully what needs to be done. At this stage questions are posted and we make sure we are all on the same page.
Design Alpha Version
Designer prepared the Alpha version of the web design for the e-shop which in turn is agreed and finalised between the Project Manager and the client. Designer makes the needed revisions.
Alpha Version of the Web Application
Programmers provide the Project Manager with the Alpha version of the e-shop, that most of the times is 75%-90% as per the specifications given and looks 70% like the web design provided. Client is sent the link to see the Alpha version but no feedback is needed from the client at this stage. Link is given for informative purposes only.
Bugs Fixing
Programmers are given feedback by the project manager and they fix the bugs found so we reach the Beta version which is 95% the same as the specifications document and the design provided.
Client Presentation
Project Manager meets up with the client again at this stage and presents him with the Beta version. Client submits his feedback and project manager explains the final touches that need to be done to the programmers so we reach the 100% of what was originally agreed.
Code Delivery
Project Manager meets the client again and delivers him the final code of the website and presents him in the demo server how the website looks and behaves. At this point client gives us the order to upload the website on his server or to our server in case he booked an Antici! Hosting Package.
Upload
Project Manager instructs the Server Administrator to upload the files on the web server chosen.
Live site testing
Project Manager tests the live site and makes sure all is according to original agreement.
Delivery
Project Manager meets up with the client and presents him with the live e-shop website.
Completed
Project is considered complete at this stage.
