Solution

When West Design approached us their existing website was disjointed running two separate systems, one “off the shelf” system for trade orders and the other to market them as a business. What we have provided is a bespoke system that drives all activity through one website, delivered in a fresh new responsive design. Our solution to the bulk adding of so many products was to build a system whereby products can be uploaded in the form of an Excel spreadsheet. However while this covers product titles, product codes, descriptions and pricing etc. it would be pointless if we could not quickly and easily add and assign product images in a similar way. To counter this problem we devised a method in which any images uploaded via FTP would be mapped to their corresponding product as long as they included the product code in their title.

Like what we do? Well, what are you waiting for...
