Changing business environments require enterprises to consider cloud technologies to remain agile and ﬂexible. However, multiple factors such as costs, infrastructure, security, interoperability and compliance, impact business decisions while migrating to cloud.
eCommerce platform providers are looking at solutions to drive customer loyalty and increase transactions. They need to take advantage of cloud to offers the desired scalability and operational agility through a ‘pay as you go’ model.
Here’s how Mindtree provided a scalable and secure eCommerce platform on cloud, for the largest online gift card exchange provider.
The customer offers an eCommerce platform that connects over 400 merchants with their customers. They operate in a USD 30 billion market of unused or unspent gift cards. The customer wanted to provide a robust, secure and scalable architecture model for their online portal, to meet the demands of the expanding trading community.
The platform needed to support multiple currencies and payment methods. It needed to meet the spurt in demand, optimize inventory and create various promotion and pricing schemes. The customer also needed to optimize card processing time during high seasonal traffic.
In addition, the platform needed to integrate with a third party inventory management system, support customized payment authorization and workﬂows.
More importantly, the customer wanted to make the new platform operational in six weeks before the holiday season.
Mindtree designed and developed the entire eCommerce platform for the customer to enable online transactions. We built catalog, order management and workﬂows to handle new modes of payment, like Amazon Credits. We built the user interface to enable users manage their accounts online, search for cards, checkout and purchase / sell / exchange cards.
Mindtree provided third party integration for inventory management, shipping labels, fraud detection, email notiﬁcation and payment gateway interfaces. Our eCommerce expertise and extensive cloud experience helped the customer launch their portal in time for the holiday season.
