About the Client
Cheese Cake City (based in Berkley, CA) began baking cheesecakes in 1985, shipping mail order cheesecakes in 1989 and opened for business on the Web as 800Cheesecake.com in November 1996. They sell most of their cheesecakes through a growing network of partner sites.
800Cheesecake.com's growing network of partner sites often brings in hundreds of orders per day. This project's core goal was to create a more efficient and reliable way for partners to communicate orders to 800Cheesecake.com, which are then processed and shipped overnight nationwide by 800Cheesecake.com.
These orders are placed through 800Cheesecake.com's partner portal (www.dropshippartners.com) which is essentially a partners-only shopping cart interface, allowing partners to place orders quickly and easily as their are received on the partner's site.
Site management tools give 800Cheesecake.com staff the ability to edit products, update shipping costs, view order histories, and edit their approved partner list in real time, using simple browser-based tools. These powerful tools allow 800Cheesecake.com to efficiently process orders in an industry where timeliness and customer satisfaction are paramount.
