The project began last May with a presentation of a Home Page mock-up and discussions as to the scope of the website re-design. It quickly became apparent that the new Adaptall website would be extremely complex and would address many business requirements such as the need to build an Adapter or Fitting on-line, a Distributor look-up function that was protected from data-mining, and an Employment Opportunities section to meet Adaptall’s rapid expansion.
Once a layout was approved, 17 Designs began the task of creating a product database to showcase Adaptall’s 6,800 products. This included importing a database with over 60 field types and developing a site navigation to manage 4 product categories, 20 sub-categories and over 500 product types.
In addition to the site being mobile-friendly, it includes a custom back-end that allows the client ADD / EDIT / DELETE / SORT / VERIFY Products and manage Testimonials, Current Promotions, Distributors, Job Applicants and Job Postings. Information Pages such as About Us, Warranty, Returns, to name a few, can be updated in-house by the client with the ability to upload new images.
The new Adaptall website is hosted on a dedicated server and is considered leading edge for the adapter industry.
