Packnwood Orders Case Study

The Brief

About Project

Packnwood has been selling and producing ecologically responsible disposable tableware and food packaging for over 40 years. They are a truly global company with operations throughout the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, the Netherlands, France, and Belgium.

Each warehouse is responsible for its inventory. As a result, it is critical for enterprises with several warehouses, such as Packnwood, to integrate and display availability from all of them. Failure to present the consolidated stock might result in revenue loss. BigCommerce is a great platform. However, it doesn’t meet the needs of certain PacknWood, such as backorders and splitting orders into several child orders. In addition, PacknWood did not want to lose money because one product is partly or entirely available at a different warehouse. To get around these constraints, PacknWood needed a seamless solution.


The Challenges

Multiple API Integration Between Fishbowl, Custom Dashboard And BigCommerce

Integration is essential for error-free operation in order to produce a robust solution. However, incorporating so many APIs was not a simple process. Software and API architecture styles are diverse. Because each system has its own unique logic, every integration has its own set of difficulties to overcome. Integrating numerous platforms takes a considerable effort, as well as extensive knowledge of each API’s internal workings. There were several difficulties with connecting to the next destination flawlessly.

Order Splitting

Another obstacle was the need to divide the order. In accordance with the client’s specifications, in the event that a customer puts an order for a quantity that is not immediately accessible at the closest warehouse, the same order should be divided into several child orders depending on the availability at the nearest and other warehouses. While splitting the orders, it was also essential to apply taxes, discounts, and order specifications.


Our Solution

Multiple API Integration Between Fishbowl, Custom Dashboard And BigCommerce

As the need for purpose-driven and customized apps grows, modern firms like PacknWood utilize a range of applications to suit various objectives. WebDesk professionals took on the challenge of integrating the information contained in these many apps to guarantee accurate ordering and order splitting. We developed a custom code that integrates with API interface and connects the platform to third-party apps. In this manner, data can be easily seamlessly transferred between the two platforms.

Order Splitting

Additional logic was included in order to separate the orders in accordance with the client’s vision. For example, suppose the consumer selects a product that is only accessible in a distant warehouse. In that case, there will be separate orders per the warehouse. On the basis of availability, a sub-child order and split order will be generated, with warehouses depending on stock. The same rationale applies to numerous products, which gets too complex. The customer will be able to manage the orders in an easy-to-understand manner as they don’t need to worry as we have implemented this strategy smoothly. If a product is under a promotion but is out of stock, the discount is still applied to the child orders and backorders that were placed at the time of the order. Additionally, the promotion is divided and applied based on the total number of orders delivered.

In addition, PacknWood provides consumers with low-cost and low-quantity sample items that they may test out before making a purchase. Each sample order generates a new child order.


Backorder Module

A backorder is unavoidable from time to time for large businesses. To avoid the hassle of waiting for your item to be available again, some customers may prefer to buy from elsewhere. If an order is split into backorders, the customers must know the latest details. We developed a one-of-a-kind backorder module that automatically separates the order and provides all relevant information to the consumer.

Order Splitting

We developed Order Splitting and Backorder modules that automatically generate a separate order with the status “Backorders” for out-of-stock products. It helps the admin monitor the backorders from the website and concentrate on which products can be delivered on time and which ones he has to organize or get back in stock to meet consumer demand. In addition, it helps the client increase sales by allowing consumers to purchase goods that are currently out of stock by displaying available quantities and the backorder status (backorders).

My Account Customization

It’s difficult to foresee a product’s demand, but backorder will assist the customer. To be a satisfied client, the consumer must also be aware of the most recent information about their purchase. Our backorder module enables customers to track the progress of their orders and the shipping status, order number, and other relevant information.


Client Testimonials

WebDesk Solution team was pretty easy to work on our website, the designers were excellent at their job as they created the design as per our expectations. The most important part for our website was the Data migration, for which we were a bit worried but the way they created the script and migrated the whole data was the best thing because we saw that the whole data was migrated without any loss. The project managers were very polite throughout the project and in the warranty period, too.

We at Camera Source, recommend WebDesk Solution for their services as we are highly satisfied with the work and their customer service.

WebDesk Solution was referred by one of our friend that had worked with them. The idea of the app was to provide local deals in the city and our major concern was the security of our data. We spent a good time communicating with John and we found his company not just a development agency but our app's technology consultancy as he suggested the best technology to use by keeping our security concerns in mind and he also suggested a few other features which we didn't think even. His explanation was crystal clear of why we should use flutter for the Mobile app and laravel for the backend of the mobile app. We were stunned to see the easy to navigate custom dashboard with features like Vendor Management, Coupon's management, Analytics, and Reports to name a few.

We spent almost a year in the development of the Mobile app with an easy to use backend and an informative App landing page. This team is now managing our complete technical requirements as we are still expanding the app functionality with a good response from our customers in the first launch.

We feel we will use WebDesk Solution for years and we recommend their services to everyone in our network.

We had to develop an online store for our Optical business(Supervision Optical) and we found WebDesk Solution from one of our contacts

WebDesk Solution team explained to us the functionalities we should need on the website and we were amazed to see their knowledge. Their quotation was quite impressive as they provided me with a detailed scope of what I will get on the website.

About the price, This team wasn't the cheapest, it wasn't the most expensive, but it was by far the best value. They provided the mockups which were exactly what we expected and the development was also pixel perfect.

This was a 5-star experience and we have also signed the maintenance contract with them.

We wanted a top-quality corporate website with a custom design as per our business needs. Webdesk Solution helped us with a couple of mockups at the very first stage as per the branding guidelines we provided them. Their design skills were excellent and they proposed us Wordpress CMS as we told them we need something SEO friendly and they explained how Wordpress CMS will be beneficial for us in long term SEO for our website.

As per our business needs, they developed our website and delivered us on time. The best part was that we didn't found any issues after they asked us to review the first version of our website.

We highly recommend Webdesk Solution as a professional WordPress development agency and there are no regrets of hiring them as we were disappointed with our previous website agency.
