B2B Portal- A platform to enhance business communication
Our client, Ashnoor, is based in India. Ashnoor is a leading textile manufacturer and exporter of terry towels across US and Europe. Our expert developers gave their best to come up with a robust and smart B2B communication portal that surpassed all our client’s expectations and is quite effective in carrying out timely communication.
Our development team created an effective B2B communication platform (Intrazap) that gets a complete control over the supply chain. All sorts of communications like asking for quotations, requesting proposals, placing an order, sending invoices, etc is now easier than ever for Ashnoor.
Our client wanted to create a one-stop station wherein user can communicate with each other without exchanging chain of emails. The main aim was to eliminate wrangling spreadsheets and pinging suppliers for constant updates. The portal was expected to have chat feature wherein internal members can chat within themselves as well as with external members.
From the interface point of view chat feature seems simple, but implementing a reliable backend to support it poses many interesting software design challenges. Our problem was even more demanding due to client’s scaling requirements: hundreds of internal members and thousands of suppliers, customers should be able to talk to each other in real-time. The core challenges include implementation of socket server using socket.io and creation of a multiple group chat function in the system.
It is an easy and hassle-free communication platform for the different vendors which provides the functionality to issue purchase invoices, source products and track shipments in one click. This is what we have come up with:
