Over the years our team has been exposed to a wide variety of projects and technologies. We'd like to call your attention to a few that we feel we posses an exceptional level of expertise:
Our roots are deeply embedded in e-commerce. That’s what we’ve been doing since day one here at Sandcastle. We understand that e-commerce is more than just getting a shopping cart up and running. That’s just the beginning. Our expertise with fulfillment/warehouse integrations, advanced discounting logic, custom operational/logistic implementations, and other 3rd party integrations makes Sandcastle the right choice for your e-commerce project.
We’ve been working with AbleCommerce since 2006 and we are an official AbleCommerce Development Partner. Over the years we’ve worked with many versions have a deep code base knowledge. We’ve designed/developed countless sites using AbleCommerce, many of these requiring complex customizations. We have also performed many version upgrades and migrations from other platforms.
As a general rule, we’ve found that any given platform will meet roughly 80% of your needs, with the remaining 20% requiring some degree of customization. This is true for e-commerce and CMS sites alike. That 20% is where we shine. We specialize in custom application development to deliver the features you need to make your business function properly. For some projects, this may also include systems designed/developed from the ground up, tailored specifically to your exact requirements.
cXML PunchOut is a common integration with many of our larger e-commerce clients. It gives you the ability to seamlessly integration with many of your biggest clients, increasing sales. We have implemented many PunchOut solutions, with e-procurement systems such as Ariba, Oracle, and SAP ... to name a few.
Umbraco is used by some of the biggest companies in the world (Microsoft, WIRED Magazine, Heinz, Vogue, SanDisk, Speedo). We have designed/developed numerous sites utilizing Umbraco and our clients find it to be a powerful, yet easy to use platform. Since Umbraco is open source and design agnostic, we have the complete freedom to make it match your brand and incorporate the features required for your business.
Your website is an extension of your brand, and as such, it should reflect your brand guidelines and communication objectives to a tee. We don’t use design templates. Every site/app is a custom design created to meet your specific brand criteria.
With the rise of mobile browsing, responsive design sites have become increasingly popular. They are also preferred by search engines, increasing your SEO value. The benefit comes in delivering a consistent presentation across all devices: desktops, laptops, tablets and smart phones … all while only having to maintain one site. Sandcastle has designed/developed many responsive implementations for e-commerce and CMS platforms.
