Itransition implemented a web-driven community-based e-Commerce platform for local growers, processors, distributors, and food retailers.
Driven by the mission of making natural and organic products more accessible and affordable across the world, while improving the overall health state globally, our US-based Customer planned to support its effort in the given direction with a portal solution. The platform was to provide a variety of services for SMEs willing to profitably grow their business in the Organic and Specialty Foods market.
Targeting growers, processors, distributors, and retailers, the solution was expected to eliminate the inherent market inefficiencies, providing the future participants an opportunity to promote the growth of sustainable businesses by accessing qualified and verified partners.
Having evaluated offerings from a host of service providers, the company selected Itransition thanks to demonstrated expertise in e-commerce platform development, proven web design and UX skills, as well as strong delivery capabilities across multiple locations.
Itransition implemented a web-driven community-based platform offering the portal users a comprehensive suite of services and solutions. The system provides advice on ways of improvement for conducting e-Commerce locally, regionally, and globally.
Some of the key features of the system available for registered users are the possibility to trade in organic and specialty food and evaluated partner search.
In fact, Trade Support Partner evaluation is periodically performed within a proprietary Quality Assurance system that leverages the latest search, relationship mapping based on a role-focused questionnaire-like algorithm, and inferential technologies. They allow to assess the partners against e-Commerce trade readiness, financial and operational integrity, product and service quality along with social responsibility.
Other solution features include:
The portal was designed to be able to store and process thousands of concurrent users and millions of records, while still providing fast response time.
Itransition’s e-commerce platform development team ensured that the solution meets the Payment Card Industry Data Security standards with all the due cardholder data protection and vulnerability management mechanisms in place. Augmented with a role-based access control, the portal serves as a robust and secure e-Commerce platform. It is now used as a powerful commercial leverage that assists SMEs in the Organic and Specialty Foods market across the globe in managing their key business functions online — from filling the excess capacity and disposing of excess inventory to exercising member buying power, while extending their supplier and distribution channels.
