Melrose Jewelers, one of the largest retailers of Rolex wrist watches wanted to build enhancements to their existing e-commerce website. A closer study revealed several problems, chief among them being the dated technology being used. Considering the degree of enhancements and to take advantage of the latest technologies, we suggested developing a new website. The website delivered runs on three different domains, which are managed through a single administration panel. Each is fully customizable in terms of the navigation menus, content and product catalogues.

Recommendations

Outsourcing web development efforts can yield drastically different results depending on who you partner with. In the end, success depends on so many factors far beyond code development itself - strong project management skills, the ability to balance a strategic vision and end user needs with technical realities, discipline in execution, steady productivity, honesty, and a positive attitude in dealing with unexpected challenges and changes to name a few. I've found that those who can consistently deliver on these key attributes are rare.
