Nukomeet's role was to analyse the current approach, to identify the possible optimizations in that process and then to build a new solution. We started with a consulting sessions to understand the problem. Then, we transform those learnings into wireframes describing the new optimized process.
We decided to build an internal e-commerce platform with notions such as a product list, a cart or a user account. The application allows sales people working in different departments across Freyssinet to coordinate their work as if they were using Amazon. They can to add products to carts, confirm its content and generate quote with a pre-invoice.
Our analysis showed that the the communication and legacy external systems were major problem. We addressed the problem using a solution with two, independant components: a simple REST API and a regular web application written in Rails.
