Challenge

Sendcloud approached STX Next with a critical challenge: they needed to integrate new carriers and expand the capabilities of existing ones within their ecommerce shipping platform. Their internal team sought to supplement their capacity to deliver the task within the required timeframe. Recognizing the importance of this integration, we offered our assistance in finding a solution.

STX Next has become our trusty partner in the early stages of a multi-year project of transforming a large part of our application into a fleet of microservices. This project has been completed, but we’re happy to retain our partnership. Over the years of our cooperation, we have been most pleased with the consistency and expertise of STX Next’s people. To add to that, we have been constantly surprised by how easy it is to do business with STX Next, even through more difficult conversations.

Solution

To overcome this challenge, STX Next expanded an innovative solution that involved integrating carrier microservices individually through a REST API and developing new microservices while maintaining the existing monolith. 

This involved creating proof-of-concept (PoC) solutions for carrier APIs, supporting self-integrating carriers, as well as developing testing tools for the new integrations that automate and speed up the whole process. In addition to these core tasks, STX Next’s team played a critical role in creating documentation and improving programming standards for Sendcloud’s entire organization, ensuring that the platform operated effectively. 

Our solution enabled the client to add new carriers to their portfolio quickly and efficiently, improving the quality and expanding the range of their services. By partnering with STX Next, Sendcloud was able to significantly reduce their time-to-market and offer better and more comprehensive services to their customers.
