Adorama is an extensive NYC-based family business focused on consumer electronics, photography, and imaging equipment industries offering literally every device and gizmo that might be on customers’ shopping lists.
The ecommerce era became an almost-overnight competitive market in response to customer demand. Adorama, always attuned to its customer base, quickly stepped up its game. The company started its online presence with a simple, internally built system, but ramped up to an ecommerce system capable of competing with giants like Amazon and providing an equivalent or better customer experience.
Our cooperation grew and eventually required a dedicated team to deliver high-quality code for greater functionality and capability to promptly respond to any technological or market changes. To raise the satisfaction level of end-users, the development team ensured stability and reliability of the existing features and improved system performance.
Adorama’s cooperation with IT Craft .NET development department started in 2007 with a small, fixed-price project that was completed within the given timeline and budget.
Business analysis and UX
Business analysis and UX design of all ideas was done on the customer side while the execution was part of IT Craft’s responsibility.
IT Craft started with small, incremental tasks to completely rebuild the whole ecommerce system and introduce its own platform.
Adorama has a ginormous system. It demanded a custom-built web platform that could be attuned to their many businesses. This made it possible to quickly add new features, extend the system, and scale with growing popularity.
From a user perspective, Adorama.com has been devoted exclusively to the photo and video equipment business. The website makes it possible to buy photo and video cameras and related equipment, and to choose from a myriad delivery options, coupons, rebates, and much more.
Speed and security
From the business side, the system must always ensure high page load speed, maximum availability, and security delivering a higher level of customer satisfaction than its competitors.
