Coaching Systems, a producer of video, online and self-instruction programs replaced an expensive to maintain, a proprietary website with an eCommerce store designed by Inforest Communications and powered by the open-source, Drupal 7 content management system.
Many of the typical demands for flexibility and extensibility are met by the website’s Drupal Commerce module and associated contributed and custom modules: Quantity discounts, coupons, user-specific discounts, affiliate tracking and account set up for an online training website are just some of the features Inforest Communications has built into the Coaching Systems website. I addition, Inforest empowered staff accounts to provide quick lookup and cart building for phone orders, saving time and headaches for customer and company alike.
The Coaching Systems website also boasts considerable flexibility in its checkout process. Not only can purchases be made by credit card, but also by purchase order. Shipping rate calculations are provided simultaneously for both UPS and USPS. Tax calculations are driven by either flat percent calculations for some states while relying on third-party calculation services for others. This flexibility, along with a strong base of Drupal Commerce has enabled Coaching Systems to do more with their website.
Our company has been working with Inforest Communications for many years now. We moved to them from a previous web developer, and it was one of the best decisions that we’ve made. Not only are they more reasonably priced than our previous web developer, but they are also much quicker to respond to any issues/additions we’ve had or needed with our site. We have always been able to reach Inforest Communications whenever we have tried to reach out to them. They have developed our site in such a way that it has taken a load of work off of our shoulders, and now the website handles it. I would highly recommend them for any company, large or small.
