Having seen the extensive list of spare parts to be sold online through the new e-commerce website, BBI Brandboost decided the best platform for the development of the site would be Magento, an open-source e-commerce suite that is capable of handling extremely large lists of products. The site would be hosted on one of our enterprise business hosting environments, so as to provide the most robust infrastucture and the fastest possible delivery of service.
As with all websites that BBI builds, SEO was a key component and was factored in from the beginning of the project. As a result, while populating the new e-commerce website with Schwank's complete range of spare parts, the listing for each one was optimised for search.
As security is of paramount importance for e-commerce transactions, the new website also required SSL and a dedicated i.p. address. We set this up on our business-grade hosting platform and subjected the infrastructure to thorough security tests before going live.
Finally, an e-commerce website only works if it is able to take payments reliably - BBI integrated the third party payment gateway into the website to allow transactions to be completed through the website smoothly and securely.
