BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the CEO and CTO of Ekomurz, a service-oriented company that specializes in Magento (1 and 2) development and services. We also build links with external solutions that need to communicate with the e-commerce sites we've built. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire UPDIVISION?

We've worked with UPDIVISION on several projects. However, their main tasks are related to a web application that ties together inventory systems from a Dutch retail company, providing accurate information for e-commerce sites.

What were your goals for this project?

The goal was to migrate everything from a Zend Framework-based approach into a Laravel-based application. We wanted to make it more open and accessible for other developers, and integrating newest technologies (logging, frontend javascript, etc.) were secondary goals.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We initially started in 2016 with a proof of concept project, exploring their Laravel-based Backpack product. It was a success, so we intensified the relationship.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

UPDIVISION provides state-of-the-art tools and technologies to build various web apps that are highly complex. The product for the Dutch retail company evolved into a centralized product information management (PIM) system and also supports information from all local shops. The UPDIVISION team also assisted in refactoring older web frontends into a brand new Magento 2 design.

What was the team composition?

We work with a small team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Customers love the new sync tool, using it on a daily basis. This successful project also gives us the opportunity to open other business deals.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We keep project management lean, communicating mainly through Slack and using a Git Workflow.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They provide a direct line of communication and consistently spend the time to provide the best technologies possible. They're flexible and always have the right people with the desired skills for each part of the project.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They're improving themselves on a daily basis. They understand how business models are built and how web apps should support users.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We use a proprietary EDI system to help online shops in Scandinavia automatically create shipping labels, track shipments, and automate their shipping processes.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire UPDIVISION?

We hired UPDIVISION to help us build an API-based Laravel web service that integrates webshops with shipping companies. We used Laravel services to manage user subscriptions, and Backpack for Laravel to manage the admin elements. However, we soon also needed a lot of custom work.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to redesign our app so it could manage tens of millions of shipments. We also wanted to provide a standardized service that worked exactly the same for every carrier and webshop. We needed one API that integrated seamlessly with multiple e-commerce solutions.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We wanted to use Laravel, but didn’t want to start from scratch. Instead, we searched for a framework that met our needs. Backpack for Laravel is a solid, well-designed framework, so we contacted UPDIVISION, its creators.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

The app handles the whole shipping process, from webshop to carrier, with just one click. It generates shipping labels, sends customers their tracking info, creates multiple shipments, finds the closest agents, and more.

During the first stage, they managed the API integration and implementation so users could test the app without entering the required information. They made it easy to set up a subscription and try the demo. They also customized Backpack for Laravel features to facilitate aggregated reports generation and automated scanning.

During the next stage, UPDIVISION analyzed the performance of the codebase and developed features that reduced order processing time. They optimized every part of the app to keep things running smoothly, regardless of the load. They also completed benchmarking and performance auditing, which included automated testing, unit testing, feature testing, and integration testing. 

What was the team composition?

We had one senior web developer and one project manager

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

They delivered everything flawlessly, always met deadlines, and helped us release the product faster. They fulfilled our initial goals: the app can handle tens of millions of shipments each quarter, including thousands of simultaneous shipments, with smooth API integration. Both are massive accomplishments.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

UPDIVISION integrated seamlessly with our in-house developers. They felt like part of our team, always available to discuss issues and work on fixes.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was constantly impressed by their professionalism and the creativity of their technical solutions. They aren't a yes-sir company; they're willing to say no when it matters. Our constructive arguments led us to much better solutions. They were crucial to the success of this app.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Overall, they did an impeccable job. One challenge of remote development is that external contractors must become familiar with a new codebase and an existing team of developers. UPDIVISION could allocate more time to getting familiar with the technical details. Before starting the project, they should ask detailed questions about the codebase and the overall logic. I'm not saying that UPDIVISION didn't do this, just that they could set aside more time for it.
