Our Task

Full development from start to finish... quite literally, from sourcing platform designs to backend development, frontend development, DevOps administration, and ongoing technical support.

What we did

A full-cycle system support, starting with design, frontend and backend, and continuing with a full-scope administration needs analysis, server research, new version deployment and ongoing system monitoring. We also provide Tier 2 technical support and prepare regular system reports for the client.

Full-stack Development

The complexity of the Local Express e-commerce platform required a multi-faceted development approach that included frontend and backend, several programming languages, multiple databases, a desktop and a mobile version. The final product is a robust shopping platform with a host of features both for shoppers and partner stores.

Full Support

With the development of an ambitious platform such as Local Express, a full-cycle system support is a requirement, not a nice-to-have. We manage the ongoing frontend and backend development for every iteration of the platform, conduct new version deployment, and monitor the functions of Local Express continuously, sending regular system reports to the client. In addition, we provide Tier 2 technical support.

Fully Responsive

Mobile optimization is key to producing a seamless online shopping experience for customers who spend most of their time utilizing mobile devices, rather than desktop computers, for their online activities. The mobile use of the Local Express platform had to be quick, easy and enjoyable while maintaining its clean user-friendly vibe. We incorporated engaging animations from the desktop version while simplifying the overall experience to improve load times.
