Bespoke Magento Module Development
O’Donnell Design Ltd is one of Ireland’s leading manufacturers of contract furniture. With a four-generation tradition in furniture making, the company decided to tap into the growing e-commerce trend with a new website dedicated to cut to size panels.
The company already had a Magento Community Edition CMS (Content Management System) set up as the base for the website and used a third-party theme for its styling. Binamic was therefore contacted not to design or develop the site, but to help with bespoke Magento module development.
As Binamic like a challenge and is a recommended bespoke Magento developer, we welcomed the challenge of building a completely unique functionality for the trusted e-commerce platform. The project was based around the idea of giving site visitors a very intuitive and user-friendly way to “create” and order the exact panels they require.
After agreeing a detailed project brief, we set about creating the module. On the front-end this is actually a dual development:
- Single-page “Create Panel” interface, which allows visitors to select the finish, type and thickness of the panel first. These choices, based on the simple products that the website offers, then allow users to specify the exact length and depth (within a pre-defined max and min values). This is turn generates a preview of the panel, with option to add/remove its edging. Although a complex price calculation algorithm is used, the visitors can see the price changes dynamically as they adjust their panel before proceeding to checkout.
- All panels are also separately set up as singular products (which can be customised as described above). This helps with usability as well as search engine performance of the site.
