Breaking down the project on these 3 main key phases & further in weekly modules to get the project on track and accountable.
Throughout the course of developing this project, we have come across several prevalent issues and challenges that have required our attention and problem-solving expertise.
Database ManagementManaging a large product database during development can be difficult. To ensure fast and smooth performance, care must be taken to ensure that the database is efficiently structured and that the appropriate indexing and caching strategies are used especially when you are managing the database for products by syncing the client’s existing database.
While syncing the database from the existing database, it is important that the data doesn’t get lost, if it gets lost then it can affect the consistency and the user’s needs.
Custom CMS DevelopmentCreating a custom CMS that can manage the content and data of an ecommerce platform necessitates a high level of technical expertise. The CMS should be simple to use, intuitive, and capable of handling large amounts of data and products.
User ExperienceAn ecommerce platform's success is heavily reliant on its user experience. Creating a user-friendly interface that allows users to easily navigate, search, and filter products necessitates careful planning and execution.
ScalabilityThe ecommerce platform must be able to handle increased traffic and transactions as the business grows. The platform's architecture and development must be scalable to accommodate an increasing number of products, users, and transactions.
Below are a few simple and effective solutions we found for the challenges we encountered:
Database ManagementTo manage a large product database, we have implemented a database management system that can handle a large volume of data while also providing quick and efficient querying. To improve performance, the database should be optimised for fast read and write operations, and caching and indexing strategies should be implemented.
User ExperienceOur UI/UX designers adhered to the effective principles for creating a user-friendly interface that is easy to navigate, search, and filter products to improve the user experience of the ecommerce platform. To improve the user experience, we have also implemented features such as autocomplete search, product comparison, and personalised recommendations.
ScalabilityWe have used cloud-based hosting services like Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure to ensure the scalability of the ecommerce platform. These hosting services provide scalable infrastructure and on-demand resources, enabling the platform to handle increased traffic and transactions as the company grows.
