Trying to balance technology with business can leave you spinning your wheels. Here, at SOFTWARED, we are excited about tech and we are more than happy to free up your valuable time for the more important work. Stop poking around in the little things and start focusing on growth by outsourcing IT to SOFTWARED – the e-commerce specialists.
Using a default e-commerce platform can be relevant to projects with limited time and budget. This is a good idea to test a notion and understand your niche. The catch is that platforms are usually not scalable and have many drawbacks during usage. One of the popular solutions is Shopify, which we are also working with.
You will need a custom e-commerce software development or an application in case if your business processes can’t fit into the template feature set. It will be hard to adopt a default solution and we recommend building a custom one.
How do you facilitate a project scope?
We create a WBS of the project and the acceptance criteria. Our analysis is based on the previously done jobs and industry standards.
Deliverable: a project prototype in the form of user epics and user stories; a ballpark estimate of your project.
Before we start project development, we gather, analyze, and specify requirements through our thorough elicitation process. This process includes stakeholder meetings and interviews, user observation, workshops, brainstorming, use cases, and prototyping. We define the objectives for the product, what needs to be accomplished, and how the product should be used.
