E-commerce Websites

The organisation

Ubiway is the company behind Distriweb, the market leader in press distribution in Belgium.

Distriweb, the press management tool, is an e-commerce site with a range of more than 6000 references in press and an extensive catalogue of more than 1500 products including smoking accessories, gifts, stationery, multimedia, hygiene products and toys.  

The challenge

There was a need for an efficient application to help newsagents with their daily orders, stock management, distribution, ... Not only in the field of press articles, but also to offer a more diverse and diversified portfolio (food, gadgets, ...) to the merchants. In addition, Distriweb wanted to meet their customers' needs with a unique training for newspaper traders and with promotional or diversification material.

The solution

Dazzle developed an online platform (Drupal 8) for Distriweb on which retailers can place and track orders, validate deliveries and return unsold magazines. Through an integration with the Solr search engine, retailers can now also find and order older publications of magazines. Segmentation within Distriweb is synchronised with Mautic, so that marketing automation can be applied easily.

In addition, an application was created that guides every new newspaper shop owner in his or her start-up, 'Become a Press Seller'. Publishers can also log in here, to give certain shops access to their existing catalogue or not.

Another project was for Kariboo, a parcel delivery company in Belgium, where a Drupal 8 e-commerce website was developed to provide shipping and track&trace of parcels.
