Challenge

The Underwear Expert wanted to create a subscription model business in the form of a custom underwear-of-the-month club. The challenge was to automate the process of ordering and managing stock, processing payments and developing tools to manage the business on the e-commerce platform.

Solution

Nopio team created a custom-built solution by using Ruby on Rails, ElasticSearch, Postgres, and MongoDB to:

  • Sync inventory between the e-commerce platform and multiple warehouses
  • Manage and optimize the inventory
  • Perform advanced subscription processing
  • View the state of the business via custom reporting and analytics suite
  • Track company financials in a custom accounting solution

The system has been designed in such a way that most of the common tasks are performed automatically. Additionally, we provided a design support to create an eye-pleasing and useful user experience.

I’ve worked with Nopio for years because of their ability to merge business strategy with technical strategy. Managing outsourced technology partners can be challenging but Nopio has an english speaking staff with good communication and project management skills. I’ve done very difficult projects with them and every time they deliver because they understand the project inside and out.
