Konga is a Nigerian eCommerce company founded in 2012. It offers a third-party online marketplace as well as direct retail in various categories including consumer electronics, fashion, home appliances, books, children's items, and personal care.
In 2014, Konga recorded a sale of $3.5 million, its revenue increasing by 450% over 2013. In January 2015, Konga was rated as the most visited Nigerian website by Alexa Internet.
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 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.
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.
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.
