Animates required a specialized integration between the headless Starshipit platform and the Adobe Commerce Orders portal to facilitate in-store staff fulfillment of all orders through the Same-Day-Delivery delivery method.
Overdose. designed and implemented a custom integration that streamlines the shipping label printing process for Animates using starshipit and NZ Post eShip. This integration was designed to accommodate the specific requirements of Animates and was configured to provide each store with its own independent order visibility and priority for Same-Day-Delivery fulfillment. To ensure accurate and reliable deliveries, all order addresses were validated against both NZ Post and Google Maps. The implementation was executed with caution, taking into consideration the lessons learned from the previous Commerce Cloud migration, and with thorough testing and a dedicated team of developers available for support during User Acceptance Testing and post-launch. This ensured a smooth and successful integration for Animates.
Animates aimed to utilize the newly introduced Adobe Live Search feature as part of the Adobe Commerce Cloud platform.
Overdose. was tasked with the implementation of the Adobe Live Search feature, one of the first in the world, which required the migration of existing custom Elasticsearch-powered search functionality to the modern feature set. Our senior developers were responsible for customizing the search bar to support searching for products, categories, video and written blog articles, content pages, and stores. The goal was to provide users with a more seamless and efficient search experience, and our team worked diligently to deliver a solution that met the client's requirements.
Overdose. was assigned the task of completing this project, which had already had some functionality and foundation implemented. Our first step was to review and understand the existing setup in order to ensure a seamless upgrade to the latest version on the Adobe Commerce platform.
Overdose. and Animates partnered with their integration partners to ensure a seamless transition to the new Adobe Live Search functionality as part of Adobe Commerce Cloud. The teams dedicated a significant amount of time to thoroughly understand the codebase and its customizations, reviewing and modifying all tables, scheduled tasks, and extensions to optimize performance. During the delivery timeline, extensive testing was conducted, with thousands of test cases completed as part of the user acceptance testing process. A comprehensive testing strategy, deployment plan, and 24-hour launch window with round-the-clock support were established to minimize potential issues. The launch was supported by senior resources, with regular late-night and early-morning checkpoints to ensure a successful transition to the new platform.
