We were required to develop product delivery range filters
using Google MAPS API Integration. Google Maps API Integration was needed to filter product delivery ranges for customers. This would allow the customer to search for the availability of the product based on their postcode. This technology was needed behind the scenes to provide an efficient, personalised service with innovative filters when installed.
Google Maps data needed to be used to create the filters for product delivery distance ranges. These filters are helpful when you want users’ locations limited based on specific criteria. In this case, an address or radius which, in terms of distance, is close by.
When it comes to deciding how far a company should go to reach potential customers, there needs to be adequate information available. In order to minimize waste, it is essential to avoid making unnecessary trips. The use of logistics to ensure deliveries are grouped by area promotes efficiency.
As an essential aspect of any business, shipping had to be taken into consideration. Shipping costs can vary depending on the weight and destination of the shipment, so the client needed accurate calculations. These calculations would ensure the company does not undercharge or overutilize its budget with unnecessary expenditures. That would have been inefficient at best! We were also required to enable a complex shipping calculation.
We created a plugin to optimize the Geo Location feature of WCFM marketplace and added input to the product details page to enable product availability check. We also modified the shipping module to match the most appropriate shipping method for their product.
We used a plugin for WCFM, the newest version of CMMS (center-of-manufacturing) system from Microsoft, to increase efficiency and improve collaboration within the company.
The WCFM Geo Location plugin allows Fojo to automate the process of geocoding. This means that their applications can use location data more quickly and efficiently than ever before, increasing customer satisfaction with their experience!
A very reasonable cost was charged to Fojo for this service. In light of the nature and urgency of the situation, project, we provide a set cost estimate for the scope of requirements presented to us by the company.
