Enhancing e-Commerce Platform – IT Staff Augmentation Case Study

A leading distributor of high­end pumps, electrical motors and support equipment, that center on distribution to the construction industry and their supply chain. Their key goals are to increase sales, reduce structural costs, and improve the customer experience. We need to take the product line as supplied in a catalog and convert it into a e-commerce website, that provides the ability of the buyers to understand the complex nature of the products and match engineering blueprints. The site must display complete set of information tools including electronics, parts catalogs, diagnostic systems and operational reporting services and warranty management solutions.

In the past their e-commerce website, the project was assigned to a 3rd party offshore vendors. This low cost vendor relied solely on emails and phone calls to organize its work and maintain the existing website. Updates and new features were consistently late and of poor code quality, requiring additional internal client resources to manage the project. These quality and performance challenges strained the overall customer relationship leading the manufacture to determine an alternative solution.

Within two weeks of engagement, two of MVI's senior software engineers proceeded to analyze, evaluate and work with the current team to determine recommendations for the current web platform. Utilizing JIRA for agile project management, the teams were able to get organized and determine an efficient action plan. Weekly sprint meetings allowed for better communication between the teams and ensured a timely execution of the tasks. Processes were improved, bugs were resolved, and development of the e-commerce platform was put back on track.

The offshore team of 6 developers was replaced by 2 senior experienced MVI developers Reduced the bug resolution time to hours instead of weeks

  • Achieved a failure rate of less than 1%
  • Migrated the code base to a modern framework
MVI practically re-wrote the website over again with two man team of MVI developers in 3 months. The previous version took 7 off-shore developers 6 months; except this time it works properly!
