Trailer Store USA is in the business of manufacturing and selling trailers both directly and through a network of dealers nationwide. The company also provides marketing support to hundreds of dealer websites.
Project Challenge Highlights:
- The main website should be customized to accommodate dozens of trailer types, brands, and configurations, and a multitude of dealer accounts and trailer stores.
- It should be multicountry-ready.
- Dealers shall maintain their inventories in a single inventory database. However, any individual dealer should be able to display its inventory via a custom WordPress website.
- Customer requires certain dealer inventories to be exported as data feeds to various 3rd party trailer retail services.
Our developers integrated custom UI design with custom data sets for specific trailers types. One of the key achievements was to develop a custom data link from the main server to hundreds WordPress client websites, populating them with dealers' inventories and effortlessly maintaining listings up-to-date. Inventory options included:
- Display only active inventory;
- Display listing specialties such as «Scratch and Dent», «Sold», «Used», or «Consignment»;
- Custom inventory categories; and
- Listings should be searcheable with various search filters.
