The Challenge
The clients requirements were vast including for their ERP system Microsoft Dynamics Finance & Operation 365 to be integrated with their ecommerce online store; to search and view product information; the ability for plant dealers to request quotes on plant lists and for them to create quotes for their direct customers; ability for download and payment of outstanding invoices online.

The client also requested the development of their Native App to be functional on both Apple and Android;  for the full functionality of the website replicated in the App; the ability to scan products and check out / payment white on site; and separate supplier and customer Kiosk.
