Goal Oriented Design
Carol defined their initial requirement, the rest was left to the hands of experts at our firm. Our scope was to deliver a complete online package which included IOs, android and web application.
A dedicated team was assigned which was then further split in to three groups – Design, UX and backend. One of the teams dived in the backend using PHP platform to integrate payment gateway and other third party services. The second was engulfed in creating an interactive UX. The last of them churned up the most epic and visually stunning designs, making the platform standout among all other e-commerce stations.
The project was executed using agile and scrum.
The deadlines were constricted and we delivered the final engine within 10 weeks.
State of the Art Technology Deployed
For the web application, we chose the laravel framework of PHP. This particular framework has many advantages like abstraction of complex functionalities, model view controller that separates code logics from HTML, security which Is necessary since ecommerce relies heavily on the trust of customers.
In order to improve the performance cap that is prevalent with e-commerce sites, we deployed the following solutions:
- Used only those extensions and modules which were meant for the site
- Optimized images and content in order to make the site responsive
- Using full page cache
