Office Max integration

1 2 3 4 5 6

The main initiative for my experience with Office Deopot was to seamlessly integrate with the legacy Office Max site which Office Depot inherited with their merger of the two companies while maintaining features with the main Office Depot site and their B2B site.

One of the larger initiatives was to funnel existing Office Max rewards customers into the flow of the Office Depot rewards program in such a way that the rewards customers were not put off or made to feel lost with the brand new experience after we pulled the switch.

This involved integrating mulitple data points, redesigned forms, client and server side validation and a new password strength meter in order to reflect care and security for the Office Max customers being ported over.

The skills involved included a modular jQuery system for client side interactivity, JSTL for templating database information from a Java/WebSphere backend architecture.

In addtion, I did work updating the client side for the shopping cart, updating the corporate identity to Office Depot/OfficeMax site-wide as well as extensive updates to the account management system.

I found this experience very challenging and rewarding as OfficeDepot was a top ten e-commerce site at this time competing directly with Staples and Amazon.com.
