Apps within an app.
We integrated Insite with Sitecore to serve fifteen shops in seven languages and ten currencies. Custom extensions to the Insite console support key business processes. Order viewers and refund applications are just some of these processes that complete VisitBritain Shops’ offering.
Sitecore Ecommerce Services is the driver that allows the withdrawal of content and commerce information from each shop. This is content managed via the advanced features of Sitecore’s Page Editor. Running off a single code base means a newly created or updated product is pushed out to all VisitBritain Shops with ease.
We also built a number of apps within the main website, but as a separate site. Apps that integrate to complete the buying process, for example. So everything from fulfilment, booking and time management had to be accounted for. An e-commerce website runs in tandem with an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that handles all such online business activity. Which for this project, was built from scratch.
