The client, a successful restaurateur in Italy saw a tremendous opportunity to bring exotic Italian coffee beans and coffee machines to restaurants and consumer homes across North America. The client chose a pure-play e-commerce business model to gain a competitive edge over other players in the market, and to ensure swift delivery to his clients.
They were already working with a graphic design team based in Italy, and they wanted to retain them for delivering design assets. After evaluating several e-commerce solutions providers based in U.S, the client decided to partner with our team because of our experience working with startups and our in-depth knowledge on leading e-commerce frameworks.
The client was looking to build an e-commerce portal with the following sophisticated features to sell coffee beans, pods and machines:
Our team developed a feature-rich e-commerce portal using Broadleaf Commerce, an enterprise class e-commerce framework built on Java, Spring Boot and Dockers. Using Broadleaf Micro Services, we customized many of the framework’s components to accommodate client’s business needs. We then integrated the solution to stripe payment gateway to facilitate e-commerce transactions, and FedEx shipping module readily available as a plugin with Broadleaf Commerce, to facilitate auto-shipping. Here are the key features of the solution we implemented.
The sophisticated e-commerce portal built by our team provided a superior online shopping experience for Momento Italiano’s customers, and served as a platform for the business to market the products successfully in U.S, starting from New York.
