Business challenges

During peak season the client identified an inconsistency between the orders placed and the items in stock, which negatively impacted customer satisfaction and led to a loss in revenue and market share.


Low sales conversion from online commerce.


Excessive calls to the application server presented order entry performance issues.


Operation stability was at risk due to legacy technology in use.


Lack of a scalable and test-friendly platform.

How Softtek comes into play

Softtek enabled an immediate in-stock shipping solution and implemented an automatic shipping hold for out-of-stock items service to release the products as they are restocked.

Improved the server performance by retrieving only the necesary information and showing the correct delivery options in the shopping card.

The Company now uses modern and easy-to-use frameworks.

Unit testing for the front end is implemented with Angular, which ensures that developed application is working as expected and is easier to modify or argument as needed.
