The goal of the project was the development of a modern online store with the most comfortable and responsive interface, as well as integration with the existing in the company document management system based on IBM Lotus. We had a task to implement the modular system, the components of which will be subsequently used to implement the future online features (partner stores with the referral system, etc.). It was necessary to ensure cross-browser compatibility in the following browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer 8+ and scalability of the project on mobile devices and tablets. It also required CMS for content management in an online store.
Also we have used in the project the following technologies and services:
- jQuery (and numerous plugins)
- authorize.net API
- Mailchimp API
- Amazon SQS
- Amazon SES
- Amazon CloudFront
- Google Tag Manager
- Fedex API
- Designer – development of the website design;
- Project-manager - communication with the customer, distribution and control of tasks implementation;
- 2 PHP programmers – development of the server site of the system;
- Tester – functional and cross-browser compatibility testing.
After all details were discussed with the customer, we have made an evaluation of the project and work plan. The project was divided into several independent parts; each of them has been divided into functional components. As a result, the project was estimated in 2 calendar months of development. Thanks to competent management the development of different parts of the system was conducted in parallel, which allowed completing the project in time.
