Analogue Life

Project Overview

Analogue Life has become the go-to address for Artisan made housewares from Japan. The owner was running an entirely hand-coded website where every updated had to be done editing HTML code on several pages. Order processes was also entirely done manually by the owner. With a growing user base the overhead of running the site became unfeasible, so The Plant was hired to modernize the site with its QOR e-commerce CMS and some advanced unique features.

Our Solution

50% of their customers ordering from overseas, the site was created as a bilingual (English and Japanese) shop from the outset. To support Analogue Life’s inventory of varying shapes and weights, we developed a custom algorithm to automatically calculate the smallest box size necessary for an order, and select the cheapest shipping partner among multiple shipping vendors.
