  • unique, modern design
  • dedicated projects tailored to specific needs

The technologies we used

After analyzing the client's needs and after UX design workshops, we recommended a tailor-made project, created from scratch. We used commonly known and stable technologies to implement the project such as PHP (Symfony framework), MySQL, React (TypeScript) and we integrated it with an external payment system.

Challenge

As the company wanted to become more independent in terms of selling its products online, together we decided to create a dedicated online store. To make the whole process easier for the customers, we created a product finder in the form of a special configurator that helps customers find rims and tires that perfectly match their cars.

How we did it

The key elements of the system are focused around an advanced configurator that allows you to automatically match tires and rims to a specific car model or by specifying selected parameters, such as width or diameter of the tire or rim.

Automation turned out to be the main challenge - integration of the store with wholesalers and optimization of the database layer that allows an efficient search for items. In other words, the ability to link specific vehicle models to matching tires and rims from different manufacturers. The data provided by the wholesalers were not systematized, therefore each integration required the creation of individual parsers that enabled the data to be transformed to one format. A large number of items, as well as extensive configuration options and the need to use an external database that provides vehicle profiles, required a lot of work related to the optimization of the entire system.

After completing the programming work and meeting the system requirements, the production environment on which the store was launched was selected. The applied technologies of automation of CI / CD implementations, in combination with the GIT version control system, allow us to maintain and further develop the entire system in a simple, fast and reliable way, and at the same time significantly reduce the time needed to implement new functionalities.

Rims and tires configurator

The key element of the online store is the rim and tire configurator, which allows you to precisely match the product to your vehicle, without knowing the technical parameters of the product you are looking for. In the event that users do not know the tire parameters, they can use such filters as:

  • car make
  • car model
  • type of bodywork
  • generation
  • producer
  • product price

If a given user knows the size of tires that fit his car, then he can use filters such as the selection of the season (summer / winter / all-season), load capacity, speed or the name of the manufacturer. In addition, the user also has the option of sorting by price and product popularity.

We achieved our goal. Our client is completely independent from other shopping platforms.

The rim configurator is also available to customers, with a choice of parameters such as width, wheel offset, the center bore and the name of the manufacturer.

The configurator was built from scratch. At the same time, the customer's offer and inventory are linked to the stationary store.

Branding

As part of the project, we proposed a brand name - Rotate It. We designed a new logo and dedicated graphic elements. We chose navy blue as the dominant color. The website design also includes elements with a green color.

In addition, the website design also includes themed photos, icons designed by us and other graphics.

In accordance with the current standards, the store also has a responsive version.

A team of specialists involved in the project included Back-end Developers experienced in PHP and Symfony, Front-end Developers, a UI / UX Designer and Copywriter. The entire implementation was supervised by an experienced Project Manager, who also performed the role of Product Owner and supported the client throughout the implementation.
