Since 2006, Van Pro has provided entrepreneurs, private and public fleet managers, car leasing companies, and automobile retailers with highly customized vehicle outfitting. They are well-known in the industry as a one-stop-shop that advises clients on how to make their vehicles functionally more efficient and safe.
To better service all of their clients, Van Pro required a web development solution that allowed certain clients to purchase off the shelf products for their specific vehicle directly on the site. This created the benefit for sales representatives to be able to spend more time focusing on custom solutions required by other clients. Increased product, inventory, and order automation functionality also needed to be integrated into their existing accounting software.
The nature of the product offering was somewhat complex since each product is designed for only certain makes and models. webhdt implemented a product/make/model database solution to accurately communicate the product offering. Products, customers, and orders were synchronized in QuickBooks using the QB software developer kit (SDK) and integration was completed using the nopCommerce QB plugin.
"We are absolutely delighted with the eCommerce website and systems integrations that webhdt developed for us. Clients can now easily compare and order off the shelf products available for their vehicle, and our sales reps have more time to speak with clients requiring custom outfitting and fleet solutions. webhdt provided exactly what we were looking for while respecting our budget and timing."
