Challenges

Alex – the Post Projects Inc. Founder reached us to get a reliable Sylius B2B eCommerce 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. We had to face the following challenges as fast as possible:

  • Providing the B2B solution
  • Migrating from the Shopify-based website
  • Front design implementation
  • Integration with WordPress, SAP database

Solution
& Outcome

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 the scope according to business requirements and matched them with available extensions. We have provided a Minimum Viable Product under the conditions set by the customer in the shortest possible time. The client received a high-tech, reliable eCommerce platform, which easily integrates with the internal structure. Moreover, is cheaper in hosting and simple in maintenance and further development, which we also took over in the eCommerce context. The whole platform is now far more flexible than previous Shopify and is ready to face business challenges without technology limitations it has been facing before.

After working with BitBag closely over the past 12 months, I can confidently say that they are the premier option to work with for the development of a Sylius-powered e-commerce platform. They have a deep knowledge of the software and are highly competent with the implementation of custom features and functionality. The experience of working with them has also been excellent-clear, timely communication, transparent billing practices, and a potent sense of urgency towards the project. We would gladly partner with BitBag again.
