e-Commerce businesses need to be on top of their game when it comes to platform development. Acting as a visual storefront, their website must be well designed, intuitive and function flawlessly.
To craft the best online experience possible and attract new users, players in the e-commerce field need to stay up to date with all the latest tech trends.
This is no simple task and sometimes requires reinforcements. Such was the case for Sensee before they turned to Pentalog.
It has been 7 years since Sensee, the No.1 French online optics specialist, entrusted Pentalog and our Cluj Delivery Center with PHP and Magento development for their eyewear and contact lens websites.
Technology has traveled leaps and bounds between 2005 and today. Sensee’s in-house development team had made adaptations to the contact lenses website over time but keeping up with the newest technologies proved to be an overwhelming task for their small IT team as business scaled up.
On top of that, the platform selling glasses launched in 2011 and functioned well but did not take advantage of the latest and greatest tech tools available. In order to update both their websites to better accommodate higher amounts of web traffic and take advantage of new tools, they needed more developers to reinforce their team.
In 2011, Sensee could no longer develop or maintain both websites independently, and faced difficulties with recruitment in France. The group decided to outsource their PHP development and Magento eCommerce site maintenance.
