A Website and Factory System Working Together
We have been working closely with Orange Bikes for the past ten years.
The project is a collaboration with Hitman who are responsible for all aspects of the design and branding as well as the management of Orange Bike's online presence.
Our involvement has been in two main areas:
Their range of mountain, gravel, road and other bikes can be customised to suit each customer and the management of these available sizes, colours and options is controlled by the Factory Software. Many bikes in their range are built to order and the software helps them to manage this process.
The system has these notable features, amongst many others:
The system is under constant development as their business changes and our role is to design and develop the software to keep on top of these changes.
We are the lead developers for the Orange Bikes website.
The website is based on the ExpressionEngine CMS.
Our involvement with the website is:
Development of the page templates
Development and maintenance of a major ExpressionEngine add-on which retrieves data from the Factory Management System and makes it available to ExpressionEngine's templates to display the model range and dealer information.
Development of other custom add-ons eg: Geo Location
Creating new functionality and features such as the "Bike Builder" and dealer management
The website is under constant development.
