Our Solutions

Creative Business Labs proposed LAMP architecture. Creative Business Labs developed the website with shopping cart functionality. The website had innovative mechanism to check the “inventory on hand” and alert individual stores when an order is placed. The system had an inbuilt mechanism to automatically keep customers updated on the status of their orders. Creative Business Labs also developed a Content Management System to manage the website which was scalable and easier to use. The Drupal Content management system was integrated with Ubercart to receive product data and pricing.

Improved performance, scalability were also part of the solution approach.

  • Simultaneous testing at multiple geographical locations.
  • Multiple language support.
  • Integrating Content Management System with E-Commerce System..
  • Custom module to move orders from Ubercart to SAP by generating the file needed for SAP process to be initiated.
