The client is an environmental enthusiast who founded a laboratory that uses a unique technology to provide energy ratings and information on energy usage of household appliances. These help individuals and businesses to choose energy-saving and eco-friendly alternatives while shopping.
The client runs an independent testing laboratory that provides energy ratings on popular electrical appliances. They approached QBurst to develop a website that would enable consumers to locate and purchase green products in the market. We successfully developed desktop and mobile versions of the client website, which helped them increase their customer base in the United States.
QBurst designed and developed a consumer portal as well as a retailer portal. The consumer portal is a static website that resizes itself based on the device from which it is accessed (Responsive Design). The retailer portal is exclusively for owners of retail chains who wish to feature energy ratings for their products.
We used Magento to create and control multiple websites from a single administration panel and modified a free extension for Magento to detect and switch between desktop and mobile versions. Responsive web technology realigns the mobile website to match the dimensions of any mobile device.
Magento eCommerce framework was used to display product lists and enable category-based search. WordPress was used to build the blog.
All three websites are powered by MySQL database. MySQL was chosen for better performance and scalability. We customized PayPal to implement payment gateway in the mobile version of the consumer portal for plan subscription. Responsive web design and QR code reading features greatly contributed to the success of the project and all three websites were deployed in a very short time.
