Parent Purchase Portal
Client: ASI Solutions
Date: 2013 - 2017
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) models have become increasingly popular in schools. The strategy enables students and teachers to use their own computers or other devices as part of the educational experience.
ASI Solutions required an easy to use Parent Purchase Portal that individual schools could personalise as their own. Parents needed to be able to select from a range of Windows, Chrome and iOS devices from leading manufacturers such as Acer, Apple, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Microsoft etc, in addition, options and accessories including hard drive upgrades, memory upgrades, laptop bags, warranty upgrades and annual maintenance contracts.
As well as an easy-to-use user interface, the portal needed to be secure, have password protection, a range of finance and shipping options and could be easily updated with price and product changes as required.
Magento was chosen as the e-commerce platform of choice to enable these portals as it is highly modular, customisable to suit specific industry needs as well as being flexible and scalable.
Since their introduction, these portals have been implemented across many schools and continue to be utilised each year as new students enrol or move to higher grades needing a device with a higher specification.
