N5 Networks was signed to handle programming for a multi-phase e-commerce project for the worlds largest auto parts manufacturer. Phase one was recently completed and serves as an employee store, which required restricted access for all 80,000 Delphi employees. We utilized TechCart Enterprise Edition to handle the storefront and shopping cart engine. N5 Networks was required to create a multitude of custom software for this particular site. Some of the key pieces included:
- Software that allows the website and the warehouses to maintain synchronized inventory.
- A quota system that only allows employees to purchase x amount of a particular item.
- A Cross reference system that allows the visitor to pick the year, make and model of their auto to see available parts.
- A ‘MY GARAGE’ system that allows visitors to store their car specs for quick lookup of parts.
Phase 2 is currently in the planning stages as a consumer site that will be available to the general public.
