Project Overview

SriKaya Enterprise had the idea of building a B2C e-commerce platform that helps users buy books, uniforms, and stationery relevant to their school. Having multiple chains of schools, initially, they had an idea to offer to their students; gradually, they wanted to expand to all users of different schools across the country.

Design Process

The advent of the online marketplace has made it easier than ever for students to get their hands on the necessary school supplies. It can be hard to know which platform to use with many options available. Fortunately, the online marketplace has eliminated many of the barriers that used to exist with school supplies, such as long waiting times and high shipping costs.

Noetic designed a scalable system architecture to access the online marketplace to make it easier for students to get the supplies they need for school.

The Challenge :

Kitaabshoppe wanted to offer a wide variety of products from different schools, and users can search by subject, brand, or category. The platform also needs an advanced cart system that makes it easy for users to select items. Once they have chosen, they can pay for their purchase using various credit and debit cards. Kitaabshoppe also wanted to offer a wide range of delivery options, including doorstep delivery and onsite pickup.

Prototype Testing

Once the design was ready, we created a prototype app to test the performance. The application provided students with school supplies. He wanted to launch a valuable product with scalable and predictable RoI on the growing market. We tested all the user flows and journeys of a user. Additionally, they were concerned about the application's security due to burgeoning cybersecurity threats and attacks in the e-commerce sector.

The Solution :

Noetic analyzed the competition and decided on the client's list of features, and we installed Hotjar to analyze user behavior with heatmaps and recording in the application. We followed agile methodology and created a wireframe, and It was essential to make sure there was an existing final user's pain. We decomposed the project and budget into miles, finalized the idea with the customer, and came up with the last fixes.

After delivering a project to the Client that brought the Customer's project to life, the Noetic project team brought KitaabShoppe to a new level of interaction between students, parents, and publishers. The platform offered centralized processes, standardized interfaces, and optimized retailer-ERP communication. As a result of the platform's implementation, sales at KitaabShoppe increased by three times while providing discounts on School supplies.
