AMP CUSTOM SHOP THE CHALLENGE Auto Meter Products Inc., a leading company on automotive instrumentation and solutions, deemed it necessary to reach their market directly through an engaging solution for car enthusiasts who wanted to create customized gauges. Auto Meter needed a tool to allow their clients to customize and order gauges with any combination of colors, materials, fonts, and textures. The process of ordering had to be integrated into their production system so they could quickly manufacture the user created gauges and deliver them worldwide. Additionally, the platform had to be flexible, allowing them to configure different pricing for every option and to configure new materials, models, and colors to continuously update their product offering.
THE SOLUTION Devsu developed a powerful and easy to use website that allows users to create and order their own customized gauges with just a few clicks. Built over Drupal, some of its features include a secure e-commerce platform, an easy to use CMS, integration with UPS for order tracking, and displaying of information that allows their manufacturing process to rapidly produce and deliver the custom gauges.
CMS built on top of Drupal
Integrated e-commerce platform
Gauges customization module
THE RESULTS Immediately after launching in November 2011, the AutoMeterCustomShop.com website helped Auto Meter Products Inc. to dramatically increase the sales of custom gauges to their customers. In just a few months, the initial investment for this Web application was recovered.
The cost of selling the gauges has reduced significantly since the user does all the customization, and the whole process to get this information is now automated. With the new Web application, there is no need for extra overhead to go through the parts and accessories required to build a custom gauge. AutoMeterCustomShop.com continues to offer new gauge options, and it is the only known platform that allows clients to buy this type of product with such a high level of customization, making Auto Meter the absolute leader in this vertical market.
