Alchemedia is a sign printing company designs and builds bespoke aluminium composite signs. The project was to design and develop a bespoke e-commerce website based on custom pricing algorithm, dictated by product dimensions, materials and additional extras. The aim of the e-commerce website was to expand Alchemedia's business by allowing products to be ordered and managed through a self-serving website.

Designing the experience

Being a customer driven business, the goal was to design a user-friendly, simple to navigate interface to provide the best possible user experience for customers, as well as promoting their sales strategy.

The pricing algorithm

The real challenge was integrating the clients dynamic pricing algorithm, as the product price had to change based on selected parameters, including size, material, quantity and extras. Each time a new option was selected, the price had to be updated accordingly.

Management portal

A secure management portal was essential to both the clients operations and the customer. The client required the ability manage and update orders based on the order lifecycle, as bespoke creation timescales vary depending on specifications, with the customer able to track every part of the lifecycle.
