American CleanStat was custom designed and developed in Magento 1.7 utilizing numerous third party extensions. The website featured a primary custom sprite navigation and internal layered navigation, a customer specific pricing module, and close to 6500 skus, many with parent/child relationships. The site was designed to maximize search engine optimization, capture new business and support existing customers.
Utilizing Magento's inherent MVC architecture for navigation optimization, the site achieved significant search engine penetration once the product data and images were upgraded to a more competitive and descriptive format.
Products, customer data and pricing were internally managed and maintained, until late 2017 when an API was built to connect the ERP to the website. However, because the ERP was so antiquated, it proved to be impractical to connect more than just a simple field update.
All security updates, new extensions, navigational and architectural changes were managed interally and later on externally.
