B2B and B2C hybrid webshop

The online store serving both companies and individual customers or you could say a both B2B and B2C portal can offer a wide variety of comfort and business functions to partners and resellers on top of regular webshop functions.

One of which is the B2B solution of the merch branding procedure that offers customization of an uploaded logo on any selected product. The created design goes straight to production speeding up the delivering process by lightyears.

Turning off webshop functionalities can make it work as an online catalogue.

The administrator interface is a great solution to load core product structure, import and manage numerous possibilities caused by the wide selection of products. The personally developed complex interface designer modul makes the Anda Present webshop one of a kind and through it all products can be customized by the user to the smallest detail.

Technology

The implementation was carried out on the following technological bases:

  • PHP Symfony Framework
  • Bootstrap
  • MySQL
  • Apache Lucene
  • Node.js
  • Angular

Implementation of a new ERP system

Right at the beginning of the development began the enterprise resource planning system’s update. The Microsoft Navision ERP system they had was replaced by the Virgo Corbis supported Business Central version.

Project timing and continuous task-reprioritisation was key when connecting them to the new enterprise resource planning system. To do that agile methodology was a great solution, because it helps us flexibly manage and accommodate newly appearing client needs during our development process.

The greatest challenge of the project was to connect and ensure continuous communication between the 3 systems (ERP, online store, production support). We gained valuable experience through learning of the industry’s characteristics. It was great to see how the client and developer team worked together in finding solutions to suddenly appearing problems. The most exciting part of the project was developing the web to print process.
