The client is a furniture distributor developing a distributed, multi-channel, multi-vendor e-commerce ecosystem for vendors, retailers and affiliates.
The California based distributor approached Armia Systems to develop a B2B multi-channel, multi-vendor e-commerce marketplace. They wanted to create a platform where their customers’-- brick and mortar furniture stores, furniture manufacturers, distributors, resellers, and sales agents could work under a single platform to improve the efficiency of the entire furniture business value chain.
The Armia Systems team was able to develop a multi-channel, multi-vendor e-commerce marketplace for the client. As it was a multi-channel, multi-vendor marketplace, different incentive modules were developed to attract the vendors, resellers and affiliates to the marketplace. Resellers can create their e-commerce stores using the platform, and the vendor products are promoted through these stores. Resellers can sell their products as well as each other's product through this platform. Brick and mortar furniture stores can create privately labeled e-commerce stores with their existing inventory as well as inventory from any of the approved vendors. Payment was processed through a central processing platform, and the company was charged a monthly fee as well as a small processing fee.
The marketplace platform was developed in PHP, Angular and MySQL stack and implemented in AWS cloud. The team created a robust SaaS platform which suited the client's needs; the client expressed appreciation for their efforts.
