Client Overview
One of the leading online retailers for high-quality bathroom products and fittings in Australia. Operational since 2000, as a part of a sector project aiming to reach a net worth of AU$4,536.2 million by 2030. They climbed their success journey from a modest retail shop to a major online marketplace, solidifying their position as an industry leader known for innovation. We, being an agile technology partner, developed an AI-based plugin in Shopify that facilitated website engagement.
Business Needs
A strong digital presence and proper lead management were two priorities for the client. They wanted to integrate the most advanced AI in to their platform for a better UI that could help their customers outsmart the competition. Desired for enabling Australia-wide delivery and solidifying their position as a leading online marketplace in the industry today. The AI solution to be developed and designed for the most comfortable user experience so that the end consumer can focus on making the most of the four key requirements that were raised by the client are, as below:

  • They focused on motivating customers to explore layouts and features, boosting website engagement for interactive shopping.
  • They desired an AI-driven website could empower customers to make informed purchase decisions.
  • Implementing cutting-edge AI technology that could generate tech-savvy customers.
  • Integrate AI to simplify design, eliminating manual steps and encouraging users to shift to design options.
Strategy & Solution
The client partnered with Flexsin to turn their vision into reality. Leverage our expertise and the power of AI to create a tool that could seamlessly integrate with their existing Shopify website. The primary challenge that we encountered was integration, as Shopify doesn't speak the same language as external APIs. We resolved this challenge and developed a custom PHP middleware,. It acted as a translator, bridging the gap between the Shopify website and the homedesignsAI API. Responsible for fetching bathroom design layouts, processing them, and delivering them to the Shopify application for display on the clients' website.

The client was particular about the API integration. After all, the user interface is the first thing visitors would see and interact with to visualize different design options and layouts. We built the front-end interface to serve as a visual gateway that features redesigned bathroom layouts provided by the homedesignsAI API. Moreover, the customer could navigate through these layouts and interact with diverse design options as well. Below are some of the highlights of the project's frontend.

  • This interface was able to present redesigned bathroom layouts.
  • The user could delve into diverse layouts and explore numerous design options.
  • The website could ensure an easy-to-use interface to visualize your perfect bathroom layout.
  • This user-friendly experience helped the customer make an informed purchase decision.

Similar to the way the frontend of any project has to be intuitive, the backend is equally important, as the core of this integration lies in the custom PHP middleware that was developed by us, therefore ensuring uninterrupted communication between Shopify, a SAAS-based application, and the homedesignsAI API. The PHP middleware acted as a translator for API requests and responses, enabling a smooth data flow and thus ensuring the AI-generated designs are accurately presented on the clients website. Here are some of the most notable characteristics of the backend that we offered.

  • We ensured that our tailored middleware could facilitate seamless communication.
  • Middleware acted as a bridge, enabling the transition.
  • We prioritized seamless data transfer.
  • Proficiently presented the AI-generated bathroom design displayed on the website.

Development Process:
Project development and implementation have always been essential for us. Our API integration process for integrating the homedesignsAI API with Shopify required meticulous planning and coding, considering the restrictions of limited documentation and Shopify stringent third-party integration policies. Moreover, we ensured flowless and effective integration throughout, thus achieving seamless and efficient integration. Review some of the key steps that were part of our overall process.

  • Detailed and understood the project requirements during the discovery phase.
  • Established a realistic timeline to deliver the project.
  • We performed an in-depth analysis of the functionalities of the API.
  • We incorporated a resilient error-handing mechanism to attend the potential issues.
  • A comprehensive test was performed at every stage to assure efficiency.
