Checkpoint for Allectra

Allectra is a multinational company manufacturing and distributing high end vacuum components to universities, major scientific research institutes including many synchrotrons and high profile names as CERN and NASA.

  • Problem:

    Allectra approached us regarding upgrading their customers online experience, one element of this was to provide an easy to use E-Commerce system as their products were complex in nature. Their requirements meant other E-Commerce platforms couldn’t give them exactly what they wanted.

  • Our Solution:

    The Checkpoint platform was built to provide manufacturers with a bespoke E-commerce system that was modular in nature and can be adapted and modified for new features.


Search

Allectra wanted their customers to be able to find what they were looking for even though they have a complex product range. We implemented the fastest search possible, which filters the entire product range instantaneously.

Modular

A key component was to be able to build extra bespoke features into the platform to improve their business operations. For example a product builder that could save their sales team time.

Responsive

Most of their customers are lab technicians so the website had to work on mobile devices especially tablets so they could keep their catalogue on hand at all times.

Legacy ERP Integration

Like all Manufacturers Allectra use an ERP system that is not as future friendly as it could. They wanted to be able to maintain one system which automatically syncs with the online shop. Therefore we set about creating a legacy ERP API to integrate directly with the Checkpoint system. This allows the product data, pricing and stock levels to be easily maintained.

The Future

The Checkpoint platform is a powerful tool to enable Manufacturers to begin their digital transformation journey by getting their data to be accessible.

We set about trying to understand the issues that fleet managers have when communicating with their fleet out on the road. We discovered that live job information can change, and drivers needed to be kept in the loop without the hassle of being called. But on top of this they needed road navigation too.
