Introduction

Franklin Energy’s marketplace is a platform that connects users with energy-efficient products and provides access to government incentives. It offers a wide range of high-quality products, valuable information on energy-saving practices, and streamlined installation arrangements with trusted contractors.

The goal

My goal is to create a new marketplace that implements a user-friendly site using the latest design system. This platform will serve as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) tool, providing utilities with a range of utilities-focused features and functionalities.

Challenge and approach

The primary challenge for designing a marketplace site SaaS is creating a seamless transition to the client’s style guide. To address this, the final UI should be properly linked to the external style guide, ensuring consistency with the client’s branding and visual identity. Additionally, since the project involves a diverse range of teams, including product and marketing, it is crucial to cater to the specific feature requirements of each department. To facilitate effective collaboration, scheduling regular design meetings and promptly addressing any questions or inquiries from stakeholders will be essential.

SaaS Model

Our marketplace-as-a-service offering not only promotes utility clients’ green energy incentives locally, but also provides high adaptability and customization. Clients can easily personalize the marketplace to match their branding guidelines, including customizing colors, typography, logos, buttons, headers, footers, and more.

Design System

As our platform is built on a SaaS model, a centralized style guide facilitates quick and efficient customization and integration with clients’ specific style guidelines.

Wireframe Design

In collaboration with the product manager and marketing team, we utilized wireframe design to finalize the design requirements for the website. By working together and using wireframes, we were able to effectively communicate and visualize the different elements of the website, ensuring that all design requirements were met before moving forward with development.

As part of the website design process, I created a sitemap to help organize the content and make it easier for the product manager, marketing team, and engineers to navigate the website. By outlining the structure of the website and the relationships between different pages and sections, the sitemap ensures that all stakeholders have a clear understanding of the website’s layout and can easily find the information they need. This helps to streamline the development process and ensures that the website is user-friendly and easy to navigate for all users.

This layout is designed to provide a user-friendly and informative shopping experience, allowing users to easily find and compare products based on their individual needs and preferences.

The pricing page displays the prices of products in full or with the available incentives. To encourage sales, a countdown timer is included on the page.
