The Challenge: What Our Client Needs
Qabazard Boats (The Client) is a company selling boat’s spare parts and diving equipments. With a huge list of spare parts items managed via excel sheets to control and manage inventory and selling prices, the client wants to start offering their products online on their own branded website.
The client wants to allow customers to pay for their orders online and set the shipping address where orders will be delivered. And for inventory to be managed manually using spreadsheets that will reflect the available inventory of each product on store as there will be off-site selling beside the online orders.
Our Proposed Solution
We (5oStudios) propose a WooCommerce based website to list all products as a table view because the client doesn’t have much data about each single product to show like (description, images, tags, etc.) so with minimal available product data, we can show them to website visitors.
We will be using WordPress plugins to allow the client to manage the inventory of products easily in table view, besides allow adding and removing products, updating price, etc. Website visitors will be able to search for the product they want or select to filter based on a specific category.
Customers will be able to make orders online on website by adding products to the shopping cart and go through the checkout process running by the process of online payment via the preferred payment gateway that should have a plugin available for integration purpose.
The client can use the WooCommerce mobile app to manage orders and get notified about new orders beside email notifications of each order. Once order is placed on website, the client will prepare the package to be shipped off-site and change the status of order.
Beside the website, we will provide a POS that can be used in shop of warehouse where client can record sales and orders to keep the inventory up to date.
