Matrix Group Redesigns The Endocrine Society’s Online Store

February 20, 2013

Matrix Group, an award-winning web design and development agency in the Washington DC area, announces the launch of The Endocrine Society’s (TES) redesigned online store.




TES wanted to completely overhaul how members and non-members could purchase publications, resources and gifts on its website. The Society also wanted a solution that made it simple for staff to update the online store’s products, pricing and discounts.




As a longtime Matrix Group partner, TES called upon our expertise to make this vision a reality. Here’s what we did:

  • Helped TES select OpenCart, an open-source e-commerce solution. We recommended OpenCart because it met most of TES' requirements out of the box and is integration-friendly.
  • Implemented OpenCart for TES, installing the admin pages for managing products, configuring the search and search results according to TES' requirements, and configuring the shopping cart with the proper rules for collecting sales tax, shipping and handling fees.
  • Integrated the new store with the TES member database. Members do not log in twice when accessing the store or the main TES website. Members are automatically given the member pricing.

TES is the world's oldest, largest and most active organization devoted to research on hormones and the clinical practice of endocrinology. The Society works to foster a greater understanding of endocrinology amongst the general public and practitioners of complementary medical disciplines and to promote the interests of all endocrinologists at the national scientific research and health policy levels of government.
