The Problem

While expanding its eCommerce reach, Konga recognized the need to offer access via mobile platforms (Android and iOS).

The challenge was now to build a great mobile experience and also develop all associated web services. Konga approached Net Solutions in 2013.

Before choosing Net Solutions as its eCommerce partner, Konga conducted a thorough market search. They initially wanted to build an iOS app and associated web offerings. Impressed with our services, Konga later decided to work with us to develop an Android app as well.

The Solution

Process and Engagement Model

The project was executed on a fixed price engagement model and with a team of six people. Net Solutions was involved in both the design and development of the app.

Collaboration and Communication

Project collaboration was done using Basecamp. Project communication was done using Go ToMeetings and Skype. An Account Manager coordinated between Konga and Net Solutions teams.

Technology Stack

The mobile apps were developed in native iOS and Android frameworks.

Since the Konga website was developed on the Magento eCommerce platform, web services were also launched using Magento.
