Solutions Lucent Team Provided
Lucent Innovation worked with Articale to choose the best Shopify themes for their industry. We presented three options to the client and allowed them to choose one that best suited their needs. The client's requirements for integrating third-party programs, such as shipping, SEO, and payment gateways, were discussed once the theme was finalized.
The best third-party apps were then found through research and evaluation to satisfy the requirements of Articale. This guaranteed their website would have all the features required to deliver a seamless user experience and meet their business objectives.
We started building the website after the theme and apps were approved. To ensure we were on the same page, we created a PSD file for the store layout, which we examined and discussed with the client. Following the client's approval of the basic structure, we started constructing the website with Shopify liquid code.
We integrated the front-end and back-end to provide the necessary functionalities, such as shopping cart, checkout, and payment gateway integrations, and to give users a seamless website experience. We thoroughly tested the website before deploying it to ensure it was bug-free and satisfied our client's needs.
