About the project
SIKO is currently transitioning from a traditional retailer to an e-commerce presence in both B2C and B2B divisions.
They have partnered with Cassovia Code to migrate B2B e-shop to the SAP Commerce platform and work on further improvements of the digital CX.
The company needed to offer a superior customer experience on their e-shops, but the legacy technology no longer met the speed requirements and hindered the development of customized functionalities. Additionally, the new solution needed to align with the SAP Commerce development roadmap.
How we proceeded:
During this stage, we have diligently gathered the client’s requirements and effectively aligned them with SAP’s best practices. This meticulous approach enables us to seamlessly implement new storefronts using cutting-edge technology, specifically SAP Spartacus.
2. Development of MVP
Following a comprehensive understanding of the client’s needs, we proceeded with the development of a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). This MVP showcased the future benefits of the proposed solutions, allowing us to validate the appropriateness of our chosen technology. We strategically selected out-of-the-box functionalities that not only address the client’s immediate requirements but also offer intriguing opportunities to enhance the customer experience in innovative ways.
3. Migration to New Storefront
4. User Testing
Throughout the development process, we conducted user acceptance testing (UAT) to ensure that the implemented features aligned with the original requirements. We actively engaged employees from the client’s side to participate in this validation process. Their valuable feedback and insights helped us fine-tune and refine the solution to meet their specific needs and expectations.
5. Refining and Performance Tuning
Any issues that arose were diligently addressed by our development team. Our skilled developers proactively refined the codebase to optimize performance and enhance the overall user experience.
6. Continuous Development
Following the successful go-live phase, we adopt a continuous development approach. We actively monitor the performance of the system and maintain a close collaboration with the client to identify opportunities for further enhancement. By leveraging ongoing feedback and insights, we continually work to implement new functionalities that enrich the system and align with the evolving needs of the client and their customers.
