Thunderboltrc.com Case Study
Started in 2006, Thunderbolt R/C (www.thunderboltrc.com) began by selling a handful of new and used products to a small number of R/C Airplane enthusiasts in Canada. After several months in operation, it became clear that in order for Thunderbolt to grow, it had to automate the way it handles customers and orders.
In 2007, Thunderbolt R/C hired Avatar Software Creations Inc. to build a robust e-commerce on-line store. Avatar used a mix of "off the shelf" and custom developed modules to create the website www.thunderboltrc.com. This on-line store features the following:
- Automated Order Processing and Inventory control.
- The ability for Thunderboltrc.com staff to update product information (description, prices, add new products, etc) with just basic knowledge of HTML.
- Integration with Paypal for credit card payment processing.
- Integration with shipping carriers to provide real-time shipping costs based on the item weight and volume.
- Integration with mobile cell phones to allow Thunderboltrc.com representatives to monitor sales and product inquires from anywhere.
- Google Analytics tracking to allow Thunderboltrc.com representatives to track where their website visitors and customers are coming from.
Avatar Software Creations Inc. provided the following services for this project:
- Consultation on the various technologies for this project - hosting, e-commerce, integration, Google Analytics, etc.
- E-Commerce shopping cart customization.
- Graphic design services.
- Integration with Paypal (credit card processing), shipping carriers, Google Analytics and mobile cell phones.
- Consultation for online marketing.
