Softeq qualified for prompt RFI turnaround time, solid subject-matter competency in advanced web stacks, extensive e-Commerce solution implementation experience along with demonstrated project management process transparency.
The team was to develop an e-Commerce platform for pharmaceuticals trading that would provide a common ground for matchmaking among private and government sector pharmacy laboratories, as well as distributors, and hospitals along with pharmacies.
The system is positioned as an online stock marketplace leveraging the B2B model of direct sales. The alpha version of the portal has the following features:
The portal is integrated with a payment and shipping gateway.
To ensure the solution security, the system utilizes the SSL security technology, the MD5 message-digest algorithm, as well as Base64 encoding and decoding algorithms.
The team employed Scrum, an iterative and incremental agile software development methodology, to be able to flexibly address the emerging requirements.
Softeq successfully delivered the alpha version of the system in line with the client’s requirements. Further implementation plans include platform extension with Auction and Live Chat capabilities. Once released, the solution is set to become an efficient sales and marketing tool that allows identifying key pharmaceutical product suppliers and buyers on the market, while tapping insightful industry statistical data invaluable for leveraging the best business opportunities.
