Development of a Product Search Engine Website based on PHP
Client: 'See It In Store'
'See It In Store' is a local product based search engine website which provides specific information to the users about the products they are looking for. The users are presented with the product catalog of registered retailers within a distance of 25 miles from their location. Users can see the product catalogs of retailers, choose a product and then visit the retailer physically. 'See It In Store' gives local businesses an opportunity to connect with the customers and come to their notice. Users can also shop for clothing, home décor, health and beauty products, jewelry, electronic products, vehicles, collectibles and art, appliances, pets, and look for the nearest bars, pubs, restaurants and grocery stores.
The client wanted an easy-to-navigate product search engine website to help users find a product in the local market. With their product search engine website, the client wanted to enable the users to first see the products, choose an apt one and then visit the nearby retailer's store to purchase it. After registration, the product search engine would allow the retailers to share information about their products and connect with the prospects.
Our client wanted a product search engine website that could scale in functionality over the time and has engaging and contemporary designs. The overall budget and time which was given to us was quite constricted. In addition to this, we also had to make sure that the search engine could be viewed successfully on a variety of handheld devices.
