Aptara Designs eBook Publisher Liguori’s New eCommerce Portal
Improves User Experience, Sales Process, and Content Management Control
Falls Church, VA – (PRWEB) February 20, 2013 – Liguori Publications’ new website and eStore that launched last week was designed and built by Aptara, the industry’s leading content technology solutions provider.
Liguori’s previous site and eStore had become outdated and book revenues were suffering. The publisher contracted with Aptara to create a new portal to:
- improve user navigation for helping drive sales
- implement a cleaner, simpler overall site design
- make the content and product inventory easy to manage
“Aptara’s breadth of expertise made this project smoother and easier than we could have hoped,” said Tab Bates, Liguori’s Director of Digital Publishing. “A single partner with a single solution approach made all the difference. Aptara designed and architected the entire website, from its look and feel to the UI and backend eCommerce functionality.”
The new site’s eCommerce functionality includes a shopping cart feature, buyer’s saved preferences, user registration, credit card processing, and integration with Liguori’s fulfillment engine. Built on the Magento platform, it enables Liguori to quickly and easily manage their product inventory, promotions, and payment cycles.
“Our content technologists and industry-specific designers considered the users’ needs and Liguori’s business goals from the outset,” said Dev Ganesan, Aptara’s President & CEO, “then engineered and implemented a new site in only 6 months, with user-friendly interfaces and new streamlined processes for readers to easily search, retrieve and pay for their favorite books and eBooks.”
