Abstract

The concept of a Social Shopping Website was the first of its kind. Their vision excited us as well. We knew there would be a lot of new features since the concept was a blend of social and shopping platforms. We analysed the best functionalities of both types of app and zeroed in on the ones that were compulsory for making it stand out.

Silkstaq needed a website that would list all the trending brands from the clothing industry and offer a chance to its customers to interact over their shopping zeal. However much complex it looked at the beginning, we were ready to take it on. Our in-house ecommerce experts and Web Developers brainstormed a customized solution only to deliver them what they wanted.

Challenges

Dynamic functionality of category blocks

Silkstaq wanted multiple category blocks on the homepage of their website. Also, these blocks were to be interdependent on the image sizes. Hence, implementing a dynamic UI was a must. This required complex coding. Our Web Development Experts cracked the complexity of this logic in no time and delivered an intuitive and attractive website to the client.

Adding more than one item to Cart

If user selects any particular item and wants to add more items to the cart, then they should be able to do that. Managing that was quite hard and challenging. Our developers managed this scenario by comparing Database value with cart ID and thus cart was managed.

Manage Payment Transaction

As per app scenario, we integrated payment gateway for transaction. At the time of development it worked fine but while moving the code from staging level to live, we encountered defects. However, our in-house team successfully fixed the issues in time.

“Green Apex’s approach to the overall development process was very systematic. They had proper project management tools through which we always got an update on the progress. This was the best part of working with them. Plus, the end product was precisely what we had envisioned. We would like to work with them again in the future.”

Our client was particular about the precision of the website. They were ready to adjust their budget and timeline accordingly. However, our developers completed and delivered the solution in three months of time. The website had every feature that we had promised them to add and even some extra which we had felt was necessary to make it the most effective one in the market.

Words from Silkstaq CEO

“We saw Green Apex’s portfolio and their existing case studies to have a rough idea about their capability to pull off a complex solution. We liked their profile and experience in the industry. However, it was only after the initial discussion with their team that we started having full faith in them. They were so swift and confident in presenting the solution that not even for a moment it seemed like they would struggle with the implementation.”
