E-COMMERCE APP

Solution

IntexSoft specialists developed a mobile app for both platforms - iOS and Android. Working with the backend, our developers synchronised the app with XML-system and loaded all the information (cost, balances, size, color, style) in the app. We configured the app such that the buyer could pay in one click. After clicking the order button, the system automatically transfers the user to a web application where the shopping cart is formed in the backend. After entering payment details, the user is redirected to the mobile app. On client's suggestion, we simultaneously developed a product - a mobile e-Stores constructor. Its main function is the ability to customize the UI of the mobile application via the backend settings. As a result, a user can change all the data (logo, images, text, menus, etc.) and apply the solution developed for the eShop when creating new mobile e-commerce apps with much lower budgets. At all stages of interaction with the program, HTTPS protocols and modern authentication techniques are used.

Methodology & Transparency

During the development, the IntexSoft team used an iterative approach. In parallel with the fulfillment of tasks, we analyzed the results and changed the workflow if deemed necessary. We also provided the client with access to the project management system.

Communication was carried out between project managers by IntexSoft and by the client. They organized weekly calls, where all the current issues on the project were discussed.
