OCEANFLEET was looking at how it could tackle the new digital economy using digitization to extend its reach as a company, improve its management decisions and accelerate the development of new products and services. Indeed, in a world where physical and virtual environments are rapidly converging, and with consumers expecting more sophisticated interfaces, companies such as OCEANFLEET expressed the necessity to meet customer needs anytime and anywhere. Therefore, OCEANFLEET tapped QPSOFTWARE to create and develop a desktop and mobile ecommerce experience worthy of the seafood company’s expectations in order to remain a player in its competitive market.
To meet the extreme challenges of the OCEANFLEET website design and development, QPSOFTWARE utilized a team spanning three countries (China, Australia and India). We applied a highly collaborative approach to communicating with QPSOFTWARE’s development team, QPSOFTWARE’s project management team, and QPSOFTWARE’s creative and design team. Together, we developed a responsive, cross-platform and mobile-first Ecommerce website, including associated coding and deployment, using Drupal Commerce, Wechat User Authentication and WeChat / AliPay / UnionPay / Paypal Payment infrastructures, as well as the implementation of a Refund System. The site allowed for optimal viewing and interaction on desktop and various mobile devices. QPSOFTWARE also provided consulting and guidance around chinese Ecommerce regulations.
