Vast Furniture & Homeswares.

The Challenge

Vast Furniture & Homewares were well established in bricks & mortar retail with 26 stores throughout Australia and New Zealand but did not have an online store. Their existing website was also not mobile friendly & didn't allow customers to find their local store whilst out and about. Vast required a complete digital strategy and ecommerce solution that was tightly integrated with their inventory management system and warehouse locations.

The Solution

We started by mapping out the warehousing and inventory management options and then determining the most streamlined solution that met all the core requirements. We developed a custom Magento integration with the selected POS system and configured intelligent shipping options to ensure products are delivered to customers from their closest and most cost effective location. A customised store location extension was developed for Magento to ensure customers could find their nearest store quickly and easily.
