Takohl Influences Jewelry Market with Broadleaf and Dunn Solutions

Broadleaf Commerce, the open-source software provider for building customized eCommerce solutions, is proud to announce the site re-launch of award-winning custom jewelry design company, Takohl. Leveraging the Broadleaf platform, experts from technology consulting firm Dunn Solutions Group created the new, highly interactive website. The site features a new version of the Treasure Ring custom ring builder, enabling Takohl?s clients to create their own one-of-a-kind jewelry. Takohl?s newly deployed website launches with thanks to the expert guidance and services of Dunn Solutions.

Using the Treasure Ring builder, shoppers are able to try their hand at being a designer and create a ring that suits their individual style. With Treasure Rings, clients may choose a metal, stone, and an engraving. "The eCommerce platform is so organized and flexible that it gives our clients all the details they need in a beautiful and clear manner," said Christina Mooney, Manager of Production and Client Relations at Takohl.

The original version of the website was created to support only desktop browsers and did not allow for ecommerce, while the Treasure Ring ring builder was previously based on Adobe Flash and was not accessible to mobile users. ?This new state-of-the-art platform enables us to close sales so much more effectively and gives us the immediate credibility that the company deserves. The platform is easy to navigate and operating the backend is super simple,? said Tammy Kohl, Founder of Takohl.

?We are so proud of the work our partners at Dunn Solutions have done for Takohl,? said Brad Buhl, COO of Broadleaf Commerce. ?The newly designed Takohl website provides a seamless experience for shoppers, and enables customers to customize their jewelry in real-time ? whenever and wherever they please.?

?By employing the Broadleaf framework, the new site fully supports all devices, including mobile phones and tablets,? said Bill Dunn of Dunn Solutions Group. ?The Treasure Ring builder is now HTML5 based, allowing it to also be accessed on all platforms.? Social media capabilities were also added, including a blog, allowing Takohl to more effectively communicate with their customers. Additionally, rings designed with the ring builder may be shared via social media.

?I would recommend Broadleaf Commerce and Dunn Solutions to any business looking to take their game to a worldwide level with precision and ease,? said Kohl. ?Their care and professionalism was outstanding.?
