What was the scope of their involvement?
We picked an open-source technology and Foridev designed and developed our e-commerce website on top of it, creating several backend functions for our business. This includes a backorder feature for when a product is out of stock and it notifies clients when the product is available again. This doesn’t exist on regular websites.
Of the several other features we created with Foridev, there’s a specific one for products that will soon expire. We’re an online grocery store and have 1,000 products that will all expire, so when a product gets close to its expiration date, the website moves it automatically to a different category with a different price.
Overall, the website is highly customized to the way we do business. We also created a pick and pack feature with which we can scan all the products. This is included in our backend. We also just finished a specific API integration with other software, and overall, the website is working well. With open-source technologies, there are no difficulties in integrating with the cloud or with a different system.
What is the team composition?
There are three people involved, though the project manager is my main point of contact.
How did you come to work with Foridev?
I looked at 5–7 companies and found Foridev on Upwork. I saw that they’re excellent in feature development, backend operations, database, and programming. I was looking for a company with strong backend development abilities and they had that.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent $25,000 so far on their services.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in March 2018, and the collaboration is ongoing.
