About this customer story
Van Bavel was looking for a Partner to create multiple e-commerce platforms that can be quickly personalized for its customers.
The first of these is a corporate B2B e-commerce platform. With this platform, called Rumi, customers can order personalized promotional products in just a few clicks and offer them within their own brand environment.
In addition, we created a gift platform, Felicitas. On this platform, users can log in with an individual access code and choose a gift. All products can be dressed up with the company’s branding or provided with the logo or name of the staff members or customers.
Firstly, the wishes and requirements of the stakeholders were mapped out during several workshops. Based on these insights, a list of requirements was made and the final scope and functionalities were determined over multiple sessions.
User-friendliness is very important for customers, such as when setting up the webshop, choosing products, and completing the order. Therefore, it was necessary to simplify these steps. Administrators want speed and ease of use when setting up, and end-users of all ages should be able to order products without any problems.
With an eye to the future, the decision was made to adopt a mobile-first approach to make the platforms user-friendly for mobile users as well.
We advised choosing WordPress in combination with WooCommerce. This makes the platforms easy to maintain for the webshop administrators. In addition, payment and shipping methods can easily be added for customers.
The result is two easily maintainable platforms. Webshop administrators can set up and manage user-friendly and personalized webshops in no time.
