Client Overview
Located in Australia, the client needed to build an e-commerce portal to maximize its reach. Since 2010, the client has offered LED lights with classic and contemporary designs to augment the look and feel of any decor. As an e-commerce development partner, we chose open-source technologies - Odoo and Python - to design the digital commerce solution. With the e-commerce portal implemented, the client attracted many global customers and improved its bottom line.
Business Needs
The client had a successful physical store. Besides having a physical store, the client wanted to capitalize on the e-commerce segment and build its digital footprint. For this purpose, the client planned to launch a dedicated e-commerce store that will cater to the demands of the always-on generation. For implementing its migration strategy, the business had the following needs.

  • Building an intuitive e-commerce layout
  • Developing a personalized in-store shopping capability
  • Creating a fluid omnichannel e-commerce experience
  • Integrating with third-party payment gateways
  • Executing proven speed-to-market strategies
Strategy & Solution
For making sure that the client successfully met its business needs, it leveraged our development expertise. The team continuously worked toward improving the existing coding standards so that the e-commerce ecosystem's development gets as streamlined as possible.

Our team understood different scripts provided by the client before integrating them within the e-commerce portal's reporting module. The team improved the performance of the scripts. Besides improving the e-commerce platform's reporting module, the team fine-tuned the performance of other modules as well.

Front-end To make sure that the e-commerce platform is ultra-intuitive for its visitors, the team used different front-end technologies such as jQuery, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and Ajax. By doing so, our team introduced the following improvements in the e-commerce portal.

  • Deployed transformative yet elegant e-commerce themes
  • Delivered seamless web performance including sign-ups
  • Created device-optimized design for tablets and desktops
  • Used JavaScript for implementing the product-zoom feature
  • Improved backend integration with Ajax

Backend The backend developers working on this project used Odoo and Python frameworks for creating a robust e-commerce ecosystem. The team developed a fast, robust e-commerce landscape by using different backend technologies. As a database, the team leveraged the robustness of PostgreSQL. Below are the backend highlights of the project.

  • Enabled fast data storage for managing different users
  • Integrated with a third-party payment gateway
  • Ensured complete transparency of digital transactions
  • Built robust inventory and shipping tracking modules
  • Reduced ecosystem downtime

Development Process We used an agile development methodology for developing the e-commerce portal. The development process was executed by a team of cross-functional teams that followed a collaborative approach. The following steps were followed for carrying out the development process.

  • Analyzed the e-commerce platform's objectives
  • Executed the information-gathering phase to finalize the technologies to be used
  • Designed and deployed prototypes while collaborating with designers
  • Implemented different front-end and backend processes
  • Handled compatibility issues and tested the ecosystem

Business Outcomes
Our developers worked along with the client's internal teams for making sure that e-commerce store's development is in line with customer expectations and requirements. The ecosystem went live as per the decided time frame, which helped us earn the client's trust.
