The client operates an online platform for selling used books, CDs, DVDs, and games. They approached us with an underperforming e-commerce website and a set of objectives: redesign the website, introduce new features, create an admin interface, and develop Android and iOS applications. A key task involved building a scanning tool that enabled users to sell their old books and media, with our platform offering them a competitive price. The primary challenge was to streamline the book finding process and enhance overall website navigation for customers. Additionally, we had to address the issues stemming from legacy code and a struggling existing user base.


To enhance the user experience, we undertook a comprehensive overhaul of the website. This included restructuring the entire website, introducing new features such as a home collection service, a saved basket feature, and a QR-code scanner. Furthermore, we diligently addressed and resolved all existing bugs. A substantial portion of our work involved refactoring the legacy code to align it with modern technologies while ensuring the retention of the existing user base. Additionally, we integrated an admin interface and implemented a push notification management service. Our team also delivered UI/UX designs based on screen specifications provided by the client, further enhancing the platform's aesthetics and usability.


As a result of our efforts, the client's e-commerce platform saw significant improvements across various aspects: Enhanced User Experience: We redesigned the website, eliminated bugs, and introduced features such as a home collection service, saved basket, and a QR-code scanner. Compatibility and Modernization: We successfully refactored the legacy code to ensure compatibility with modern technologies, safeguarding the existing user base. Administrative Efficiency: The integration of an admin interface streamlined administrative tasks. Communication and Engagement: The push notification management service is enabled. Aesthetically Pleasing Design: Our UI/UX designs enhanced the visual appeal and usability .
