Business Catalyst Site of the week is Star Headlight & Lantern Co designed
by A2Z Enhanced Digital Solutions.
This site was built to support a worldwide manufacturer of Police and Emergency lighting; it uses E-commerce capabilities to feature over
250 products that are available for purchase through distributors, due to this fact it does not show pricing or use the shopping cart. Each product
features Detailed Features, Specs, Models and Docs tabs that include Product images, Specs, Instruction Manuals, Product Flyers and Videos.
Since this customer does not sell online they needed a Sales Rep Search tool that was built using Web Apps and Liquid to
help create the Sale Rep Search http://www.star1889.com/sales/star-headlight-sale-rep-search.
This site also features an extensive catalog of over 500 PDF media downloadable instruction manuals and product flyers as well as a number of support and
customer contact Web Forms. Due to the large number of products, product images and media downloads this site took about 6 months
“I’ve been a BC partner for almost 7 years now and web designer/developer since 1997. BC allows me to build awesome sites without extensive server side database coding or scripting. BC’s CMS, CRM, Ecommerce and email marketing features are a huge benefit to my clients.” (Barry
W. Alt, A2Z EDS)
One of the biggest challenges the designer encountered was figuring out the best way to setup the sales rep search as the customer has reps all over the world. This was accomplished using Web Apps and Liquid. The other huge challenge was dealing with the character limit placed on the four Custom options used for the product info tabs on each product page, which was overcome using Web Apps.
Barry's advice for somebody who just started using BC: “Get connected with other BC Partners and check out or join the following BC Communities and training resources: BC Sandpile, BC Gurus, BC App Store, BC Training Academe, and BC LinkedIn Groups. These are all great resources that have helped me out tremendously.”
