During the onset of this client's relationship with Chetu, they were in the beginning phrases of penetrating a new market.
The client a entered the reseller market as a secondary distributor of products from major electronic brands like Apple and Samsung, as well as smaller manufacturers of accessories for these products. The client wanted to have a business to business (B2B) website to support their new architecture.
At their request, it was necessary for the client's B2B e-commerce website to contain three major features. These features included a friendly user interface to add, remove, and edit complex business rules to the product pricing and security, the ability to easily import vendor products to the system, and compatibility with partner websites to redirect users to the client's B2B website.
To bring the client's idea to reality, Chetu conducted multiple sessions with SMEs from the client's side to understand the requirements and documented these requirements in a Chetu proprietary format with approval from the client.
Chetu channeled resources into matching the client with the code base that would work best for them; we vetted several technologies and weighed the pros against the cons.

Chetu seamlessly implemented the B2B website thanks to Magento's inbuilt features. The CSV file upload capabilities made imports incredibly easy and we instrumented a web service-based methodology for partner website "punch-in."
The final solution provided by Chetu featured a secure and practical B2B website that superseded the client's expectations. The deliverable is programmed with the following features:
