Key Challenges

This project was a rather ambitious one from our client, thus there were a few challenges on the way of our development team:

  • We had to build a feature that allows suppliers to calculate the time & cost of machines to be purchased by consumers for rent.
  • Another challenge was to build a feature to digitally sign contracts for renting machines between suppliers and consumers.
  • MachSteel is a full-fledged eCommerce portal for manufacturers in the mechanical engineering industry. However, our client also wanted this platform to help visitors avail post-sales services such as training, consulting, programming, application and service .
  • Aside from the requirements mentioned in the above point, our client also wanted this to be a platform for manufacturers to connect with each other through discussion threads, blogging, and creating goal-oriented communities.

Our Solutions

We leveraged our 14-year expertise to meet our clients’ requirements for the MachSteel eCommerce platform. The project required integration of a diverse variety of features, and we found a neat way to arrange all of them into a functional eCommerce portal.

  • First, we coordinated with the remote backend team to understand the flow of the website. This helped us integrate the backend to the front-end and completely change the website design for good.
  • Once we had an understanding of the website design and layout, our development team built an eCommerce portal at the core.
  • Then we proceeded to implement other features such as blogging, discussion forum, among other sets of features which facilitate social connections between manufacturers.
