Simplifying Diverse, International Product Landscapes
Understanding the problem
Finding the right tires for hundreds of makes of cars in thirteen international markets, each with unique constraints, is impossible without the right tools. To make it possible, we designed and built a web application for our client that makes finding the right tires for their members’ vehicles simple. The app simultaneously speeds up the process and improves sales documentation.
Using the tire configurator web tool, PriceSmart Tire Center employees can find the best option for members by visually selecting tires from a custom-built database.
The app leverages a bidirectional interface that uses the client’s AS/400 mainframe for order processing and order management.
We developed an automated update system to process product availability and specification changes without client intervention. For manufacturers who did not want an automated interface, we created an interface for uploading a flat file with the same information.
Our client does business in thirteen countries in Latin America, Central America, and the Caribbean, so foreign language support was essential.
