We created an “enrichment interface” through which editors can now complete the “bare” products that we sync from the company’s ERP with rich media contents like geopoints, descriptions, media galleries, and videos.
We created a custom checkout flow built entirely on the Vue.JS framework capable of handling the many variations of such a complex product.
We integrated Elasticsearch and built a “type-ahead” search engine with the ability to group results geographically.
We created a balanced cluster architecture that makes horizontal scaling a breeze and currently offers response times of approximately 200ms.
