Rijad, Saudi Arabia
Software Development and Team Augmentation service for a high-volume B2B e-commerce platform targeting global suppliers and manufacturers.
Client & Challenge
Shabic is a startup based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, aiming to streamline the purchasing process for businesses. They approached us to develop a secure and reliable B2B e-commerce platform capable of handling high volumes of orders.
The customer, who is Chief Executive Officer of Schabic, approached us in Q1 of 2022 in search for a company that could build a farshore development department based in Europe. The customer was looking for a team that would be able not only to manage and develop the project of the SaaS, but also to prepare business analysis and act as a product owner, suggesting solutions based on our internal experience.
The customer was initially looking for a UX/UI designer, a frontend developer in AngularJS, one backend developer in Java and for a technical project manager that could help in business analysis and in owning the product. The Job of the business analysis and of the UX/UI designers was to prepare a design that will fit the requirements of the customer, and frontend and backend developers had to put those requirements in practice.
The main challenges faced during the project were:
Reliability – Creating a secure and reliable service capable of handling high volumes of orders.
User-Friendly – Implementing a user-friendly interface and powerful search features.
Credibility and Transparency – Integrating with Government services for quick user/company verification respecting all rights of the final user.
Upon receiving the project inquiry, our team provided the client with suitable candidates from our development team. After a series of interviews, the client selected two Senior Frontend Developers to start the project. Over time, the team expanded to include additional frontend developers, a backend developer, a QA engineer, and a project manager. This dedicated team worked closely with the client to ensure the successful development and ongoing improvement of the Shabic platform.
