DinoPC offer high performance, heavily customisable Gaming PC's and approached Absolute Commerce to build them a new website in Magento 2.

We migrated the data from their proprietary website to Magento 2 and developed a Custom Product Type to power their PC Configurator. This configurator allows the team at DinoPC to add simple rules to filter and validate the combination of thousands of components.

DinoPC already had an E-Commerce website. Their existing proprietary store was functional, but growth was limited. They had previously engaged an agency to migrate their website to Magento 2, however the agency lacked the expertise to complete such a complex project.

Absolute Commerce took over and performed the necessary discovery and planning, and had the expertise needed to complete the project.

We succeeded where our predecessor failed.

Magento 2

We configured the core Magento 2 features to provide many improvements over their proprietary system.

The perfect combination of Varnish and Redis Cache gave huge performance boosts in page loading speeds.

PC Configurator products could be easily created via the Magento Admin Panel, making complex combinations simple.

Custom Magento 2 Product Type

Magento 2 comes with various product types out of the box including Configurable Product and Bundle Product, however DinoPC needed something a little more Dinosauric!

The main requirement of their new website was to be able to display hundreds of components to a customer and allow them to pick and choose freely to build their dream PC.

Absolute Commerce created a new product type, based loosely on the Magento Bundle Product, but allowing for infinite combinations of component products.

Component Validation

Not all components are compatible together, so DinoPC needed to be able to validate the combinations based on business logic.

We developed a complex filtering and validation system which the team could manage via the Magento Admin Panel, allowing complete control over what the customer could see and select, and provide the customer with instant feedback on invalid combinations.

The project was delivered on time and within budget including discovery, functional specification, development, data migration, project management and testing.

The team at DinoPC had high expectations, yet had only great things to say about the way we operate our ability to exceed their expectations.

We came to Joseph with a rather challenging project, him and Chris tackled it in their stride showing exceptional technical knowledge and professionalism throughout.

We started off with a general concept and ideas of the desired functionality, with very limited knowledge or experience of Magento.

Joseph and Chris helped us to develop the requirements and break down the project as we went along, taking care of the development, as well as documenting the work and managing deployment into multiple environments.

Our expectations were high and we had a relatively limited budget to work with, but Absolute Commerce endeavoured to see the project through, with a custom solution that has a high level of automation and sound logic and structure.

We have only great things to say about the way Absolute Commerce operates, and their ability to exceed client expectations and tackle the most ambitious of projects.
