Integrated Online School Payment System

A BV Commerce and Dot Net Nuke Integration

Client & the Business Case:
The client is a leading IT solution provider for online software solutions for K-12 school districts in the US. The need was to upgrade an existing product which enabled parents to make payments to the school. This was a hosted SaaS product that required a significant upgrade in terms of the functionality. The product consisted of a two parts - The first module being a customized Dot Net Nuke solution and the second module being a customized version of BV Commerce. To meet this initiative they found it appropriate to leverage Chimera's technology and prior expertise in handling similar applications, and outsource the upgradation of their product to us.

Solution:
The initial challenge was to understand the existing functionalities of the product before proceeding to upgrade the system. Multiple remote meeting enabled the team to quickly define the requirements for the upgradation. Import export modules were written in Dot Net Nuke(DNN) as user controls and new menu items and modules were added to the existing DNN framework. The BVCommerce software had to be customized to showcase the special product categories added to the existing product. Additional business logics were created to validate the items added to the cart and new pages were created in the storefront to add special kinds of payments. In addition to demonstrating Chimeras' capabilities in handling new technologies it also further demonstrates our adeptness to executing software projects offshore, especially with an organization experimenting offshore for the first time.

Technologies:
BV Commerce, DotNetNuke, .Net 3.5.
