THE CONTEXT

Client’s needs/goals

Get in touch with our e-commerce team for a free estimation + consultancy session.

We provided consultancy in tailoring the technical solutions to be used and determining their infrastructure and performance optimization needs, while maintaining their products, orders and customers database.

We provided Homex with consultancy on how to:

  • Create a flexible and stable architecture.
  • Optimize their database and code.
  • Import and reuse their old product catalogue and structure it better.
  • Maintain their performance on search engines.
  • Improve the user's shopping experience.
  • Create a robust checkout experience.

We analyzed Homex’s old application and database architecture and managed to replicate all the processes their old website was managing in a new custom-built platform.

The client had permanent access to the development team, allowing them to be in control of the development process and allowing us to implement the best solution to any issue.

Their online store was built using a modern open-source architecture, at the best value for their budget.

While building the new Laravel-based e-commerce solution we created:

  • A reliable and scalable e-commerce solution with added flexibility that would adapt to their growing business requirements and their customer-centric philosophy.
  • A migration process from the old website to the new platform, avoiding negative impact in terms of SEO.
  • Full range e-commerce functionality.
