Dealini

ABOUT:

Dealini is an ecommerce platform for buying various products in auctions, where the products are presented on a ‘daily deal’ basis. Their project, e-catch, is an auctions-based market survey site.

CHALLENGE

The biggest challenge for Dealini was a limited timeframe. They reached out to us with the hope that we could deliver a complete product from scratch and go live in just over one month. From the technical side, we had to ensure that the auctions are safe against concurrent bidding. For example, we had to make sure there is always one winner even if someone used bots to bid in the last second.

SOLUTION

STX Next provided Dealini with a full development team consisting of backend and frontend devs, a QA tester and a Product Owner. Thanks to close daily collaboration and thorough documentation provided by the client, STX Next’s team could start working at full capacity from day 1. The program features implemented by STX Next include a responsive, mobile-ready single page web application; bidding on auctions; buying related products; and email notifications.

TESTIMONIALS

Author

Thanks to sprints lasting only one week each, close cooperation and very good contact with the client, STX Next succeeded. It would not be possible without the dedication of the Dealini team, the availability and countless third-party services provided to us in order to minimize the effort needed to build a complete product. We also highly value the feedback we received after each review meeting.
