Designer Stencils new Ecommerce website went LIVE on May 20th, 2011.  It is not just any E-Commerce site, this site had some very specific requirments in order to help streamline their business processes.

The first was a module that would mimic how they to take orders over the phone and process payments and special international shipping procedures.

The Next requirement was to create a QuickShip module that would allow them to scan the barcodes we implemented in the system.  After they fullfill and order they would simply scan the Order Number barcode and the Tracking barcode from USPS, UPS or FedEx and it would update the order with the shipping status, tracking number and send email to customer with shipping status.  This module also need the ability to track orders by looking up tracking number, date or order number to get the shipping status.

Still yet they wanted to be even more efficiant and wanted to link up a POS system to the same database so VSS Business Solutions created a bar coding system that would print labels with product SKU (both as bar code and readable text), price and name pf product.  These labels would be placed on the products in the retail shop and for shows.  Now they can simply scan each item into the POS and check out VIA the Ecommerce engine keeping all of the transaction securly (VIA SSL) in a single encrypted database.
