How we worked
This project was built on a long period of time, with gradually launched functionalities and modules, based on market feedback and in pace with the growth of the business and its marketing strategy.
Being built on a custom PHP framework with a monolitic architecture, 2 full-stack developers and 1 QA tester were involved.
The communication between the client and the development team was on our Project Manager responsibility.
Agile – Kanban was the way of doing the development process, with periodically releases in production and feedback sessions.
Working with BottegaVerde since it first launched on the Romanian market, we have developed a complete eCommerce platform capable of meeting the company’s needs and offering customers a simple and fast way to enjoy brand products.
ControlF5 is still a trusted partner for BottegaVerde, developing new functionalities while providing support and maintenance services for the smooth running of applications.
