International Connections Academy is an accredited, online private school serving students in grades K–12 throughout the United States and abroad. In search for a modern, mobile-friendly, and accessible shopping cart solution, the International Connections Academy management chose eZe Store by Ida Apps. eZe Store is the most comprehensive shopping cart solution for Salesforce. eZe Store is built on Force.com platform and is seamlessly integrated with Salesforce.com, the world's number one sales and CRM application.
As part of this initiative, the built-in eCommerce user interface in eZe Store was replaced by the accessible templates offered on http://accessible-template.com/ by Sharon Shaked. This template complies with Section 508 & WCAG 2.0 AA and is built based on Assets framework, Bootstrap 3.3, and jQuery-ui. As part of the collaboration between Ida Apps and Sharon Shaked, the accessible template was further customized to better fit the specific needs of International Connections Academy. It took approximately 4 weeks to complete this project, and the new online store https://store.internationalconnectionsacademy.com went live on January 2016.
