JDS Labs make headphone amplifiers, DACs and other high-end components for a loyal fanbase of audiophiles around the world.
Like proper engineers, they DIY'ed their initial website with a PHP backend that "did the job". After a number of years though it became clear that they needed an upgrade as the codebase had become difficult to maintain.
I stepped in at Feral to help JDS put together a fully customised e-commerce platform from scratch using Django.
This allowed them to add a number of custom features not possible with existing platforms like Shopify and also made it a breeze to integrate with their custom ERP system running the production lines.
The site continues to tick along allowing them to grow their product line without needing to integrate a heavy-duty shopping platform like Magento or WooComerce.
