Written by Laura Rojas

12.22.2021

More than a Digital Transformation Agency, our team is dedicated to creating technological solutions for those problems that most on the market would deny or say can’t be solved. Our 8 years of experience with Cloud Transformation, Web and App Development, Optimized eCommerce, and many more have let us always find a way to solve our clients’ problems and exceed their expectations by creating permanent solutions.

This year, we smashed the phrase: “That can’t be done” and replaced it again with the words: “Let’s go for more”.

Highlights of this year: 

  • Winners at the Square Unboxed Hackathon 2021
  • Speakers at the Square Unboxed 2021 event 
  • A subscriptions payment platform 100% integrated with BigCommerce and Square
  • A real-time inventory sync App for BigCommerce and Square 
  • Platform Migration from WooCommerce to BigCommerce for WordPress
  • Delivering a Headless Content ecosystem for a traditional corporation
  • Transforming a traditional business into a SaaS platform.
Year 2021 review

1. Winners at the Square Unboxed Hackathon 2021 

This year Square decided to challenge developers to come up with different solutions using the new components they were about to announce, and so, we built two different products that were selected as winners in two different categories. 

FIRST WIN:

  • Best Snippet for Square Online: 
  • Photo Review App: Photo Review is a social validation app that allows online sellers to post or repost original content from their customers on their product pages, using Instagram and a hashtag. 

Here’s how it works:

SECOND WIN:

  • Most impressive technical integration: 
  • React Square Web Payments SDK: We built a library that helps developers quickly build secure payment forms by only passing some parameters and a Square account. 

Here’s how it works:

2. Speakers at the Square Unboxed 2021 event

At the Square Unboxed event of this year, we talked about how we are using Square platforms to build omnichannel solutions and all the opportunities that the pandemic brought that helped accelerate digital transformations.

3. A real-time inventory sync App for BigCommerce and Square 

For an online store that handles massive orders and users, dealing effectively with inventory sync is always a real challenge for business owners. That’s why we decided to build PIIM Cloud, a real-time inventory sync App fully integrated with BigCommerce and Square, that business owners can install on their stores, and quickly sync all their inventory without having the need to do it manually. 

This solution works perfectly even for Shopify users that are having trouble keeping up with the growth of their business.

4. Platform Migration from WooCommerce to BigCommerce for WordPress

Digitalization is the move from analog to digital, and Procurement processes have undergone Digital Transformations. As a result, digital procurement is the use of digital technologies to better the procurement functioning of a business. 

According to a survey done by the World Economic Forum, 80% of businesses are digitizing their work processes. Most companies’ entire procure-to-pay cycle has been digitized. 

This is due to digital procurement being more efficient, effective and less time consuming than the traditional procurement process. It has maximized productivity while minimizing expenses. 

Also through the use of artificial intelligence (AI), real time information has been captured and used to inform decisions pertaining investments. 

Digital procurement has streamlined routine tasks which had in turn freed up time for procurement teams to concentrate on more value driven and high impact tasks. 

Automation and digitisation go hand in hand. Automation coexists with digitalisation because one’s adoption leads to the others. Procurement processes such as purchase requisition, purchase order and invoice management are simplified by procurement process automation. 

As a result, productivity and efficiency improve and staff are no longer bogged down by redundant tasks. The time these processes usually consume is also lessened to a great degree. 

5. Delivering a Headless Content ecosystem for a traditional corporation

Whenever a client needs to expand their business and create side projects that are part of their brand, going Headless is the tool that provides that permanent solution and makes everything work in the simplest way possible. And so, for our client Diproinduca Foundation we delivered them a Hybrid Content Management ecosystem that allowed them to easily manage all their content. 

With a Headless infrastructure we also built a platform with interactive content for their annual World Environment Day Drawing Contest, that could also support hundreds of participants and all their information, as well as function as a classification and voting system.

6. Transforming a traditional business into a SaaS platform

Our client AVWAVE Interactive Solutions needed a platform that could help their customers show their real estate properties using 3D renders, 3D tours, and even options like countertops types and wall colors to provide an entire new sales channel for their customers. As a traditional business model, we decided to transform their business into a SaaS business model. 

We created a multi-tenant platform that could handle large files to be uploaded and displayed eCommerce data, features, and descriptions, while accumulating customer data like selections, taste, percentage of completion, etc. This platform works as a virtual showroom for developers and builders, allowing them to incorporate site plans, floor plans, exterior, and interior renderings, 360 tours, and animated tours of their developments to their websites and showrooms. 

Thank you to the team and every client who put their trust in us. We are very excited to see what 2022 is going to bring for all of us. 

Here’s to a new year full of more achievements.
