Our client is a producer and distributor of high-end, hand-crafted furniture. Their custom-made, original and curated furniture is built to meet the demands and unique tastes of our customers, providing a high-quality product that will be enjoyed for a lifetime. Following their quality-over-quantity policy and customer-centered approach, they has set out to change the way people buy furniture online.
On their mission to transform the online furniture shopping, our client experienced major obstacles soon. The transformation and rebuilding of the e-commerce platform didn’t progress as expected. Two years from the project start had passed, but the progress was still far from satisfactory. Similar to some other projects, the management realized they need an experienced partner to take the lead in the project and push the development in the right direction. This is why they choose us.
Fist, a detailed analysis followed. It became clear that the e-commerce platform backend was old-fashioned, difficult to maintain, and non-scalable. After two weeks we had a proposal for a new architecture of the backend that would be a cornerstone for the years to come. It provided a new technology, scalability, and much better maintainability. After only 7 months of development, the new platform went live. Since then end customers enjoy a modern, state of the art e-commerce platform.
Using the new platform, our client is now on the way to transform furniture shopping online. The benefits are manifold:
- dramatic acceleration of the shopping experience
- the new, simplified and comfortable payment process
- full automatization of all backend processes
- maintenance costs down by 70%
