Highly Customizable Shopping Portal

Xexec wanted a highly customizable content management system for their multi user client shopping portal. They needed a system that could easily be customized for different clients, allowing different visual schemes for different clients.

We developed a website for them where they could add as many different portals as they need, customizing each at the level of the client, and then also at a regional level for each client.

Each individual user can also customize their experience, from designing their home page via drag & drop, to electing their favourite categories.
Users can sign up for email notifications for when their favourite suppliers add new offers, and subscribe to sporting, cultural and other events. Xexec source discounts from many different suppliers and offer them to the end users of their portals.

The website automatically detects users preferences, by tracking what products they view. By linking products together with keywords, and linking categories together, the website shows people more of the offers that they are actually interested in. This gives the end user a very user friendly experience where they get exactly what they want from the site.

All of this is controlled by a fully comprehensive, state of the art administration site. Multiple levels of access can easily be setup, and different admin users can be restricted to seeing only the information that is relevant to them. This means that Xexec can give their clients access to control their site and feel confident that they cannot interfere with one another’s portals.

The website is written in ASP.NET using C#. We used MonoRail, NHibernate, jQuery and Windsor, with a SQL Server 2005 database.
