How Do You Configure The Complexity of Managing Product Variations?

  oz contacts managing product variationsAs any business that sells product knows, selling the product is one of the easier parts of the product management process. Factor in a wide range of product variations and NetSuite integration requires a bit more thinking outside the box for managing product variations. This was the case when we were approached by Oz Contacts an online eCommerce business who sell a wide range of contact lenses based on the customers' actual optometrist prescription. With contact lenses being sourced from within Australia, Oz Contacts are able to supply a wider range from their website. While products with option choices can be easily managed with Netsuite's Matrix Item type, what happens when the combinations go into the thousands as with Contact Lenses?

How Does the eCommerce Website Lifecycle Impact on Your Needs With NetSuite?

The increase of e-commerce has redesigned the manner in which people around the globe buy and sell goods. As new online channels come into use, the traditional online distribution model for brands relying on eCommerce continues to be disrupted. In fact, the complete eCommerce Website Lifecycle is constantly and rapidly changing. It is this constant disruption that we here at Cloud Coders look at when approached to develop any integration between NetSuite and an eCommerce website already in use. In fact, we have found there are 6 key stages that begin with the investigation of the marketplace and business use for the website, through to the redesign and decommissioning of the website to adjust for changes as business and consumer needs change.

Investigate

This initial stage should cover who your market is, what their requirements are, and what CMS will work best for your business. Things to consider are what type of content you want to use now and in the future, what is currently successful in the same market space that you're operating in, and what your key points of difference are within the business model. One point to keep in mind is how will you communicate this to your audience?
