After building dozens of custom e-commerce web sites over a six year period, Distant Horizon reflected back on what our successful sites had in common. We then took the "greatest hits" of all past functionality and implemented it into our flagship e-commerce product. We know that the best way to serve internet customers is with a comprehensive web site that offers meaningful product descriptions, product photography, and listed features and benefits in a well-organized, searchable online catalog. It is designed to be self-maintainable, fully customizable, search engine optimized and very simple to use for your customer. With over 250,000 SKUs for sale online, we love to work with companies with thousands of products that are currently trapped in a back-end system. If you are succeeding in your local market, and your products are shippable, you will succeed on the web. Period.
At Distant Horizon most of our customers are wholesale supply companies, so we know that wholesalers need unique features. On our wholesale e-commerce sites, we include a "rapid reorder" function for customers, new account approval interface, optional password protected pricing, and optional contract pricing per login.
Okay, so you have a small business or retail store that sells products that are suitable for selling online, but you can't seem to find an affordable shopping cart web site solution.
At Distant Horizon, our small business track record goes back to 1999. But in the intervening years we have become skilled enough to work for multi-national corporations and wholesale supply companies with tens of thousands of products for sale online. With our "big business" capabilities and small business understanding, we'll develop a system designed to work for you.
Our flagship e-commerce solution covers everything you need to get started, but as your business grows you may need to incorporate additional functionality. We've got that covered, too. Our system is fully scalable, with room to include deeper levels of product categorization, multiple product views, shipping calculators, and more. Since we've ensured a clear upgrade path, you don't have to worry about hitting any brick walls on your journey.
If you have a transactional web site concept that can be accomplished using web pages, databases and tools such as APIs, XML, COM Objects, Services, JAVA, SOAP, AJAX etc. ... if you can explain it, we can either do it or know someone who can.
Often clients come to us with a transaction concept which is not that difficult to understand and yet is totally inappropriate for the traditional "shopping cart" system. We have extensive experience with this type of project and frequently during a free consultation we can make observations or refinements to your concept to make it more cost effective or more stable as an application.
