ECommerce Web Development


Our client, a premier international distributor of teas was seeking a partner company that could help them develop and deploy an e-commerce system. DSI, using Active Server Pages and a Microsoft SiteServer platform, developed a database and browser interfaces to the website. In addition, DSI designed the graphics and static HTML web pages for our client.


After understanding the desires of our client's management team, DSI began to develop a concept for the website. To truly understand their needs, DSI created specification documents and prototype applications for each type of functionality required by our client. The prototype applications were based on DSI's expertise in client-server application development and extended the functionality of back-office processes to the world of the Internet.

DSI then designed a complete data structure operating on Microsoft's SiteServer platform. The data structure allows users to register, store shopping carts, manage profiles, and order items. It also includes a fully functional on-line catalog that can be maintained by our client's web administrative staff.

Our client successfully deployed a fully functional e-commerce site to their specifications in a matter of months. The site allows for the administrative staff to maintain catalogs and order reports through a remote management utility built using Visual Basic.
