Who is GAN-RUGS?
GAN is the indoor brand of GANDIA BLASCO, and actually the starting point. José Gandía-Blasco, president of the company, reinvented the family business after a journey of four decades, at the end of the 80s. Loyal to the origin of the company, José developed new lines of textiles for home, betting strongly on the design and incorporating the world of the carpet into its catalogue. This is how the original GAN was born. It is an interior design brand based on handmade products, with its own identity.
Why has Magento been used?
Choosing an Open Source e-commerce tool, first we have analysed the needs and expectations of the client. We have also taken in the mind the volume of its business. It is important to mention that the company sells internationally. Magento uses the MySQL/MariaDB relational database system, the PHP programming language, and Zend Framework elements. Also, the practices of object-oriented programming and the model-view-controller architecture. In the same way it uses the entity-attribute-value model to store the data.
What work have we done?
Design and layout
The design of a website is a very important factor to attract customers. Being an interior design company, we offer them a clean and elegant website design just like the products they sell. We want to highlight how important it is for designer and programmer to work together, as often what seems to the designer to be a good idea, for the layout, is not so good. Following with the layout work, it was done by our Gsoft programmers.
Programming, installation and configuration of the server
Likewise, the programming work of the store has been done by our programmers. They have been responsible for the installation, configuration of the online store and the programming of the new functionalities of this project. Specifically, it is an e-commerce in Magento with b2b and b2c functionality, and with different content for Spain, for the rest of Europe, and for the USA.
Finally, there has been a training for the management of Magento. Training seminars have been held in the offices of Gandia Blasco, so that its marketing team does not need our services to perform daily tasks:
- Management of static pages.
- Configuration of dynamic banners and sliders.
- Updating data and images of products and categories.
