Through this info viewer can analyses various products, select their desired product, view detail information on product features and place an online order by filling small response form at affiliate site.
The main challenge was setting up an affiliate system with CMS functionality to client in such a way that client can easily manage their own content for products, its affiliate link, can set order based on affiliate terms.
The content management system was also required to manage the various data in the different pages like about us, information, contact us, home page and other general pages.

We have integrated all the products with relative affiliate account by placing link on each product. From this link viewer will redirect to affiliate site, view further detail and place order by filling simple form.
