Website for 'ontronics' Using CakePHP – Online Mobile Phone Store

Client Brief

The client's area of operation is to buy used handset and to refurbish/recycle them. He approached SynapseIndia with a requirement to design and develop a website against his business which would work as platform for mobile buy-back vendors.

Our Endeavor

Designing the Site:

We have designed the whole website - starting from the homepage to the inside pages. Choosing the color scheme of the site was our preliminary approach; and we settled on using the lightest shade of gray, and dark gray. To match the base, other elements( buttons etc.) were designed in bright colors like orange. The banner, images have been patched in the website in such a manner, that a user who is seeing the website first the first time, will take no time to recognize that, the website is about electronics recycling.

Developing the Site:

Ontronics is a leading company focused on recycling, re-manufacturing and re-marketing of consumer electronics. Alongside, it also offers various other services like consumer electronics repair, consumer electronics refurbishment, custom packaging, software configurations, data/content removal, warehousing, and much more.

The website that we have developed, works as a system from where retailers or third party vendors can search for devices (mobile/smartphones) and check out their respective prices that the client is offering to them. The website is accessible to three types of users of users: retailers, sales representatives, store managers and warehouse staff.

On an outset...

The website allows a user to browse through the product categories and their details and choose a product for buying. Once a customer finalizes a product, retailer can create a shipment and can affix FedEx shipping label, which is to be generated from site. He can then ship the product to the client's warehouse. Apart from accepting trade-ins, retailers can manage all the users of their stores and can view sales report of their sales representatives and store manager. ON the other side, once device is received at the warehouse, the client can pull up the record from database by entering shipping ID to view the shipped devices and its details. He can even create discrepancies report if any device is missing from the shipment.

Let's now discuss the accessibility the four users are bestowed with...


Retailers can perform the following tasks:

  • They are given log-in credentials provided by the admin and can view the details of their retail stores and the details of store managers associated with their stores.
