Panvia partnered with FATbit Technologies to start an online platform that can deliver fresh food from local farmers to the community. They chose Growcer- our ecommerce grocery software, to set up a web application where customers could buy local products and a mobile application for delivery staff to manage and track deliveries.
The main objective was to set up a platform that would enable the local community to order fresh food from local farms daily. The customers would, after selecting their products, decide about the delivery location, time and date. The last step in the process would be the delivery of the purchased products.
The FATbit team had a series of introductory meetings, where we explained the working of Growcer in detail to the client and his team. Then, we provided them with a demo server to test the software to make an informed decision.
We managed to launch the web application within four months, despite many requirements that were explicitly required for the client's region, including a specific payment gateway and integration with other third-party software for tax purposes.
FATbit Technologies managed to deliver the website powered by Growcer in a timely manner despite the extra requests for additional features that we gave during the development process. The team kept a daily communication throughout the project duration. They were responsive and approachable.
We liked the fact that the web application has an amazing admin interface that allowed us to modify most of our website without the need for redeployment or any other inputs needed from the FATbit team. We were also impressed with the large number of third-party integrations that were available as default. It is worth mentioning that the FATbit team helped us at every step of the way, and when deadlines were tight, they even worked on weekends. Some of the change requests were made free of charge, which is something we appreciate.
