BreakAwayDistributing B2B and B2C
selling platform

The SLK Solutions agency responsible for developing an online store hired us to help them with creating a selling platform dedicated to B2B and B2C clients. BreakAwayDistributing – agency operating from 1993 with main office located in Hamilton, Canada offers high quality products, which are possible to buy individually when requested by a client.

The requirements posed by client were related to a business model that they used. BreakAwayDistributing’s range of products are dedicated to 2 client groups: wholesales and retail. Because of that, the platform had to be built in a way that allowed sales to both groups, with consideration of requirements and needs of each group.

The product variety expanded, and their availability in different variants included special orders that required a Clothing Creator. The requirements of the client also included the implementation of a modern theme design.

Analysis and implementation_

The project required the involvement of Magento experts with different areas of expertise. To make handling of two client groups possible, it was necessary to analyze the needs of each group. We also had to factor in intuitive order handling by customer services.

We recommended the use of MultiSite’s functionality offered by Magento. Thanks to this solution, we were able to create multiple stores governed by one admin panel. It also allowed for easy handling of stock management and clear price configuration.

According to the client’s requirements, the platform should have a function that allows clothing customization, before the order quotation is sent to apprisal department. The Clothing Creator should also allow for customization of more than one product simultaneously. By using our solution, it is possible to add clothing to a cart while being able to choose traits like size or color. While ordering, it is also possible to select a quantity of customized products.

Using creator function to create requests for customer price quotes could complicate the manual creation of an order in the admin panel, in the next step of order handling. To avert that kind of problem, we implemented a function that allowed order quotation – when accepted – to be automatically changed to ‘ready for shipping’.

Key features_

_Magento MultiSite

The implementation of Magento- MultiSite allowed a smooth and efficient governing of all the stores dedicated to appropriate client groups, with different needs, using one admin panel. Because of this, the client received a solution which matched their 2 different business models, both B2B and B2C.

_Wholseales pricing module

Once the order quotation is created and accepted with assistance of a very simple function, it is converted with the admin panel- by a sales staff, converting the quotation process into a normal order. As a result of this solution, the person using the admin panel is not forced to manually input data, which saves time significantly.

_Clothing configurator

The Clothing Creator we implemented allows for customization of clothing in a shipping cart. The user can select a product in size or color of their choosing.

_Unique graphic design

By rebuilding the website and implementing a responsive web design by way of RWD Bootstrap, the client received a platform that met the modern design standards and was mobile-ready.

The Clever Code team has done a lot of great work on our Magento store. Not only regular maintenance, but creative projects as well. Very easy to communicate through their ticketing system and Skype. Time zones can be tricky when working internationally, but I find they respond quickly no matter the hour. We will continue working with them.
