Basso Bikes contacted Calicantus seeking to achieve two goals: to increase online sales, and to grow brand awareness, by creating an e-commerce platform with product configurator.
A multi-currency, multi-lingual, multi-list e-commerce was created to meet the needs of internationalization, following the contemporary principles of web usability.
Plus, to meet a growing need for customization, the platform was implemented with a product configurator which has allowed us to optimize processes, time-scales and the resulting costs.
