Virtina won a prestigious project from a cartonization company in the United States. The company focuses on making shipping more accurate and efficient. Their packing technology makes it easier for store owners to establish precise carton requirements, reducing the packing and shipping costs.
The advanced algorithm and packing rules created by them makes it easier for merchants to obtain accurate shipping estimates. Furthermore, merchants get to generate visual instructions for packing each order efficiently. Their algorithm uses the best practices to optimize each pallet load.
The company requested Virtina to develop a plugin (app) for the BigCommerce platform. Any company that has a store on BigCommerce with an extensive packing ecosystem should be able to use this app to determine the exact packing required for an order automatically.
After an end customer places an order on a BigCommerce store with this plugin installed, the website's admin on the backend should be able to extract the most suitable, efficient, and cost-effective packaging for that particular order.
On the app screen, the client wished to let a merchant configure various credentials. The client wanted to let the merchant manage multiple aspects of the plugin. They wanted the app to contain a screen to manage multiple box sizes, where a store's admin can add/ edit/ delete different box types with ease.
The client also requested a text field option for the merchants. Using this, the store's admin can enter the packing rules for all the products and boxes. Furthermore, in the app section, the admin should be able to view the results from the API for every order.
The experts at Virtina created the app to store all the configurations, box types, and packing rules in the middleware database for each store. The app passes product attributes like dimensions, color, weight, and quantity for each order item to the API.
It also forwards all the available box related information and packing rules to the API. The app is fully capable of communicating with the store and the API to find the packing details. The app will help store owners to find proper packaging needed for all items in an order.
Due to the app's availability on the BigCommerce platform, many eCommerce businesses that frequently deal in packing numerous orders with multiple items will be able to buy and install this app to save a ton of money on packing and shipping costs.
