Olympus Cameras and Lenses

Process

The very first engagement with the Group was targeted for furnishing the existing look and layout of the Corporate websites and Magento web portals.

Later, we moved on to restructuring the Magento portal and building a very high-end custom module for consumers to have privilege in custom building their camera based on their choice of color, lenses, and accessories. Dedicated Magento experts were allocated for the stated module development and daily update meetings with the client were scheduled to share the progress and ensure things are aligned and as per the expectations. The real roadblock we faced at that time was the seamless flow we need to adhere for giving ease to consumers in customizing their cameras and which was successfully accomplished.

Further, we started onto module deployment for various other sections including product warranty registration, new payment gateways implementation, customize Analytic on Magento Admin panel for better data segmentation, integration of Mobile Apps and others.
