As Insurgo scaled and recruited resellers or vendors from all over the world into its network, they faced the challenge of digitizing their business and sales processes. To increase efficiency and avoid the need for manual work, Insurgo needed a digital solution that would allow their resellers or vendors to register on their site and orders to automatically assign to the correct vendor based on the closest location.
Codup built a custom plugin for their WooCommerce store – an extension of the WooCommerce Product Vendors plugin – that digitized their sales processes and automated their entire workflow of vendor registration and routing the order to the correct vendor. Our plugin allowed the store admin to add vendors to their system and assign multiple locations to them. The store admin could also assign products to all those multiple vendors on the Edit Product screen of WooCommerce. Since the company was only dealing with one product, we disallowed their vendors to add new products or edit the existing ones. How does it work? Whenever a customer places an order, our plugin matches the delivery address of the customer with the location of the vendor and assigns the order to the closest vendor. The assigned vendor then receives the order notification in his email and also on his admin dashboard.
Our custom WooCommerce plugin, built to spec for our client’s business, eliminated the need for manual work and took the pain out of managing multiple vendors and assigning the right order to the right vendor. Our client no longer needed to manage all of this manually – our plugin did all the heavy lifting and automated most of the work.
