Delta Education is a leading publisher of elementary school science curriculum in the United States. They sell hands-on science kits, readers, and other learning materials to K-8 educational institutions. The website needed to be a critical piece of a larger, integrated program, including catalogs, sales, and online efforts. Delta Education’s catalog and e-commerce needs were complex.
Delta needed to have a standard shopping cart process that worked with normal and bulk purchases, custom checkout process, integration with Avalara for tax estimation services, custom shipping cost calculation business rules, and a custom payment gateway provider (Stripe), and Delta’s ERP system. In a future phase, the site would need to integrate with Delta’s marketing efforts. Finally, Delta needed a mobile-friendly, responsive design that would allow for normal CMS, e-commerce, blogs, and event registration.
