Stages of creating an online auto parts store

The client, a leading auto parts retailer, approached Filio Force company to create an online store for their business. The company had been in the market for a long time and had scaled well in a chain store format. But in today’s world of technology and information, it’s hard to imagine a successful business that doesn’t exist online. Our client had an online shop before, but it was only used as a form of customer communication. We value confidentiality and have obtained permission to publish this case study, but the client has chosen to conceal its brand.

The analysis

After a detailed job analysis and a snapshot of the employees’ working day, the following problems were identified:

  • Managers spend 75% of their time picking the right parts for customers. Manual order processing leads to inefficiencies and delays.
  • Stock balances are generated from multiple suppliers, and with no single database in the warehouse, there are constant problems with duplicate names. The same item could be entered with different nomenclature. This led to confusion and incorrect calculation of stock balances. As a result, there were inventory problems, inconsistencies in stock levels and incorrect purchasing planning.
  • The website is a calling card. The customer cannot see the full range of products in the store and find out the cost and availability of the part they are interested in. This reduces conversion and profit.
  • The site lacked online payment integration, which reduced the customer experience.
