Site Management Systems: Filling In The Blanks

  • Post published:April 8, 2015

Though many of our projects span from initiation to completion, perhaps an even larger number involve the enhancement of existing programs that other developers have crafted for clients.

One great recent example is an instance in which we were hired to add more features to an only partially completed enterprise application, responsible for managing store operations.

At the time, our client was managing his stores with a system built with a flat file database, point of sale application and an additional custom service that maintained his stores’ data synchronization with an online ordering POS app.

Sometimes, though, basic features aren’t enough. As times and tech move onward and upward, so too do an online shop’s needs.

In collaboration with our client, we integrated a coupon maintenance function, the ability to change/update an online order status, store detail display options (i.e. store hours, offers), and a bulk CSV import.

Other vteams brainstorms for the system resulted in utilities like franchise, store polling, franchise customer acquisition, store groups and the ability to search for stores by region. We also added online help videos. All of this was accomplished using C#, .Net 4.5, Asp.Net, MVC 5, Telerik Kendo UI Controls for MVC, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, Asp.Net Web API and Tortoise SVN.
