Zambesi is one of New Zealand’s most prominent clothing designers and have a significant global market. Zambesi Store saw an opportunity in the online space to deliver their product to the world, and took it. Zambesi themselves designed the website, based off best practise design suggestions from Solutionists. Always unique, Solutionists developed several custom features for the Zambesi ecommerce website that would help represent the Zambesi brand, and deliver efficient, automated website maintenance.

Custom features include:

  • Full integration with Zambesi’s point of sale system Retail Pro – stock, pricing, customers and images are automatically uploaded into the website as they are updated in the POS
  • Priority store fulfilment – Upon order the Zambesi website calculates which store has the stock levels to fulfil the order. Based on priority this store will be emailed automatically instructing the staff to send the order to head office.
  • Tumblr integration – As Zambesi were already running a Tumblr blog, we integrated this into the website, adding Facebook Like and Twitter buttons to each post (which would link back to the site)
  • Coming Soon/Out of Stock – If a product is Out of Stock or Coming Soon the product will still be loaded on the website – and the appropriate message will display automatically. If a product is Coming Soon a customer can add it to their Want List and be notified via email automatically when it comes in stock.
  • Product image swap out – On colour selection all product images swap out to display only the images for that colour.
