Ecom launch express

The eCom Rollout Express

Based on any Existing - Marketplace Theme

The eCom Rollout Express is AdVision's "quick launch' Web Store Development package that is customized specifically for the Lightspeed eCom platform and averages around 40 hours of our Development Team's work.

It is based on using an ‘existing theme’ from the Lightspeed Marketplace that you subscribe to.

AdVision will then go through our 3 stage Development process to address the visual design and branding of the theme as well as our comprehensive task list.

Because the initial layout and programming have been addressed within any subscribed theme, this significantly reduces the development and launch time to create your businesses design/branding for it.

Working in concert with our clients on their list of tasks, a Rollout Express project usually launches within 4 - 6 weeks, as long as the client addresses all of what they need to do locally.

All of our packages are 'scalable' and any work that may be required outside of this list of services, such as Add-On Functionality, can be added during the development, or at any future time after launch.

  • Rebrand/Design - Existing Lightspeed eCom Theme
  • Program & Code - Theme
  • Includes 8 Hrs Add-On Functionality Programming
  • Address eCom self-administration portal presets
  • Format Static Content PCI Pages
  • Internal Search Engine Optimization

The eCom Presentation

Completely Custom Web Store

The Presentation is geared towards companies that have a particular look, brand or design that they need to be customized or replicated on the Lightspeed eCom platform, and that there is no Theme on the Lightspeed Marketplace, that captures what they are looking for.

AdVision will Design a new or Replicate your unique branding & design, into your Lightspeed eCom Web Store, while you guide the approval process. If you already have a designer, AdVision can work with them throughout the project and compliment their services.

This package averages 60 hours of our Development team's work, and includes 16 hours set aside within this package, for any custom coding or add-on functionality requirements.

Working and guiding our clients though the 3 stage process, a Presentation development project, usually launches within 6 - 8 weeks, as long as the client addresses all of what they need to do locally.

All of our packages are 'scalable' and any work that may be required outside of this list of services, can be added during the development, or at any future time after launch.

Setting up Lightspeed eCom Web Store, correctly the first time!

The primary challenges that arises when setting up you're new Lightspeed eCom Web Store, is that you, as the retail store owner are required to address a 'long list of tasks. to get started, of which 2 tasks are the most significant.

1 - is to populate the Lightspeed Retail POS with 100s or even 1000's of products, their details and images.

2 - is to go through the eCom administration portal, to setup and brand the eCom Web Store.

Although setting up the eCom Web Store is initially implied as easy and simple, 'pick a theme - and your up and running', it can be quite obvious at an early stage that 'a little help here' by experienced experts, could really benefit your business.

There are over 100 questions/presets within the eCom Web Store administration portal, and more depending on the theme you choose.

There is one way to do these tasks correctly, and unfortunately, many ways to do them them incorrectly.

The eCom Web Store administration portal can be very time consuming and difficult to the uninitiated to fully complete all presets with confidence. And, even when addressed to the best of your abilities, there are still other development tasks not available within the presets that are very beneficial, such as performance optimization, mobile theme responsiveness, internal SEO optimization, external Google registration to name a few, and that can generally only be done by an experienced development company.

We know that a large percentage of new clients to Lightspeed eCom can take many, many months to be ready to launch, if at all.

To assure a professional and comprehensive launch, while fast tracking these tasks, AdVision offers our two scalable development packages, listed above, for customizing you're Lightspeed eCom Web Store theme.

Our clients, usually have only have a finite amount of time and resources they can dedicate to setting up their new eCom Web Store and AdVision is your Number 1 Reliable Development Resource, to get it done right, the first time around.

 

Biggest complaint about AdVision by our clients is ... 'that they did not discover us earlier!’

Beyond The Speed of Light, your choice of eCommerce Platforms

AdVision offers our Web Store Development Services specifically for the Lightspeed Retail or OnSite Point-of-Sale (POS) user.

We customize on one of (2) two eCommerce Platforms, that connect to the Lightspeed POS and in turn maintain the functionality of uploading products and downloading orders back to the POS.

The vast majority of our clients (80%+) development requirements, fit comfortably within the Lightspeed eCom platform, which is 'cloud based' and available directly from Lightspeed HQ.

You can sign up with Lightspeed for an eCom account at anytime and that will then allow us to help you customize and launch your new eCom online Web Store.

In addition to customizing on the cloud based eCom platform, we also have available a fully 'self hosted' eCommerce platform for the minority of clients that have extensive customization and backend administration tasks that are beyond the capabilities of the Lightspeed eCom platform.

AdVision eCommerce (AE) is our most advanced level and feature rich eCommerce platform and is also available by subscription and includes the AE platform, PCI compliant hosting along with all Updates and Support. It is installed within a PCI compliant (secure) hosting environment, on its own dedicated IP and SSL, without sharing data resources, unlike Cloud hosted platforms.

The primary benefit to this platform, vs cloud hosted option, is that you can circumnavigate existing development limitations on the eCom platform, and customize absolutely 'anything' you require into AE's online store and it's backend administration.

What is the difference between a 'Cloud' and 'Self-Hosted' Web Stores?

Simple Analogy:

Cloud based web stores: is like having an apartment in a building and sharing resources. You can make some changes in your suite (theme), but are governed by the programming restrictions or access, that can prevent you from adding in custom functionality or 3rd party content that you might need as you evolve your business. Many common add on functionality needs are addressed through 'apps/plugins' made available, however they may or may not work on the platform you subscribe to. It is the platform you subscribe to that dictates and limits all of what that web store looks and navigates like.

"Very cost effective to get into as you generally choose a web store themes, update colors, update your logo and you're up and running."

Self-Hosted web stores: is like having a home on your own lot (self-hosted) that you can alter both inside and out and expand (scalable) with no programming restrictions. Fully customized design and programming capabilities makes this option an excellent solution for companies that are more focused on their online presence and have a list of ideas and ambitions that will constantly be evolving. Self-hosted web stores are generally faster to browse, far more self administratively advanced and can address many complex eCommerce ordering requirements such as streamline fulfillment for shipping and just in time order, feeding multiple web stores, wholesale b2b tier level pricing and custom reporting.

"More expensive to customize and support, takes more time to develop, but you get 'exactly' what you want and need, in every aspect."

Summary: About 85% of eCommerce retailers fit the 'Cloud hosted' theme and 15% 'Self-Hosted'.
