The client

The product range includes award-winning glass pipes, hand pipes, vaporizers and diverse CBD accesories. In the last year, WCG reached over 13$ million in revenue and hired 35 employees working for its success.


Challenges

Alex – the Post Project product owner reached us to get a reliable Sylius B2B platform in no time. The time pressure was caused by creating a new opportunity on the Canadian market – cannabis has become legal. Owners of the WCG company wanted to hit the market before their competitors would do it. Our mission was to provide B2B solution, integration with WordPress, SAP database and front design implementation as fast as it was possible.


How we solved the problem?

At the beginning we did a demand analysis and chose the elements that we could implement directly from our open-source and know-how. Thereafter, we optimized part of scope according to business requirements and matched them with available extensions. Then we carried out a number of features, such as:

  1. Search engine extended by author's elasticsearch plugin with autocomplete function
  2. Faceted navigation module (setting a couple of filters at the same time)
  3. Quick order module (adding products to order by entering SKU numbers in a quick form)
  4. Customer groups visibility toggle module (creating customers groups e.g. retailer/wholesaler/VIP and then adjusting which part of products might be visible for them)
  5. Exclusion of tax calculation for specific groups of users
  6. Shipping zones and tax rates configuration
  7. Content Management System setup
  8. Support in front WP integration

Solution & Outcome

We have provided Minimum Viable Product under the conditions set by the customer in the shortest possible time. The client received high-tech, reliable eCommerce platform, which easily integrates with internal structure. Moreover, is cheaper in hosting and simple in maintenance and further development.
