Description

Our customer - ExhibitTrader.com - offers an immense inventory of New, Rental and Pre-Owned trade show displays solutions, combined with award winning exhibit and graphic design capabilities and turnkey exhibit support services.  Together we created a beautiful website that is very scalable and supports the breadth of inventory and services ExhibitTrader.com offers.

Business Goals

  • To create a new platform that uses modern technologies and provides a great user experience with engaging content and marketing.
  • To ensure the platform is scalable and robust enough to support the inventory and services that ExhibitTrader.com offers, as well as increased website traffic.
  • To easily manage content, exhibit inventory, blog posts, and more.
  • To leverage a tightly integrated marketing platform to engage with website visitors in a more meaningful way.

Solution

  • Software Allies needed to create a new solution with Salesforce.com in the center.  Using ExhibitTrader.com's vast experience in their industry and experience with their old CRM and website, we worked closely together to design their ideal system.  We created a new website with a responsive web design, using a leading front end Javascript framework, sitting on top of Ruby on Rails.  With Heroku as the hosting service, the website can be easily scaled to keep up with website traffic.
  • The new website is tightly integrated with Salesforce.com.  Every inventory listing and website activity is synced with Salesforce.com so that they can easily manage their content and their sales personnel can react to what each visitor is showing interest in.  We also used Contentful to manage content for pages and blog posts.
  • Salesforce.com is also tightly integrated with a leading Marketing Automation platform.  This allows ExhibitTrader.com's marketing personnel to easily create marketing journeys based on website activity.  With the bread of inventory and services ExhibitTrader.com offers, they needed a way to engage with visitors in a personalized way.  When a website visitor views a particular category of listings or submits a form for a particular service, ExhibitTrader.com is able to stay engaged with that visitor long after they leave their website.
