Yearly Archives: 2020

Like many businesses today, Arpi’s Industries was looking to expand their well-established product and service-based business online. They wanted to add an e-commerce Parts Store to their existing website, which they planned to build out over time, anticipating a future inventory that could number in the 1000’s.

The considerations necessary for Arpi’s online growth and success were integration with their current website; mobile-friendly responsive design that would allow for a good viewing experience on any device; rapid site speed to reduce bounce rate and positively impact SEO; and easy back-end store management.

With this in mind, Cornerstone worked with Arpi’s to evaluate several e-commerce platforms and integration options, and recommended a WooCommerce / WordPress integration. This pairing met all of the essential criteria while also providing anticipated long-term value.

Some additional aspects of e-commerce functionality, user experience, website security and website future proofing that came under consideration through the planning phase included:

With the Parts Store now up and running, Apri’s has successfully expanded their business and the site has increased discoverability and relevance for consumers. This is a fantastic case study in how, even within the framework of an existing website, e-commerce functionality can be seamlessly integrated and in-person product and service transactions can be balanced with robust online capability.
