Custom Built Admin Features
Front-Commerce created a way of detecting when employees are connected to the Devialet website via Magento’s admin area, allowing them to access a different version of the online catalogue. This has facilitated employee purchases across the globe.
As this was a strategic move for Devialet, their internal IT teams were very involved in the project and participated in certain developments. Front-Commerce was implemented jointly between the Devialet and PH2M teams, giving Devialet the autonomy they needed to evolve their storefront later on.
Devialet was PH2M’s 3rd Front-Commerce project so all teams concerned were able to take the time and care necessary for implementation. Between PH2M’s expertise and Front-Commerce’s hand-on support everything went smoothly.
Working together, several internal issues have been improved. For example, Front-Commerce now has better compatibility with CDNs. This is worthwhile when there are peaks in web traffic, and was the case with Devialet, whose platform relaunch coincided with a new product launch. We also were able to optimize memory & resilience as a result of this project.
“We value Front-Commerce as a partner as it’s the best headless front-end out there for Magento 1 and 2. 3 projects on, our time management is improved and we’ve also optimized our internal processes for this type of project.” – Frédéric Martinez, PH2M
