The Policy Press

2000 - 2008

The Policy Press website was the e-commerce book sales system and main public website of the publisher.

The system was based on PHP OS Commerce but extended in a number of ways. A basic general CMS was added. The catalog system was greatly extended and customized to fit with printed publications, and various themed groupings of them.

In addition the web MySQL system was integrated with a Microsoft / SQL server desktop based stock control system. As part of this a desktop Windows application was written to enable better data synching.
