Client Pain Area

The client did not have a consolidated system that would benefit to small and medium sized businesses for selling their products to discrete consumers. They hence required a portal which enables sellers to add discounted products on site so that consumers can download discount coupons from the site and purchase the product from seller’s physical store.

Business Objectives

The client needed an integrated online portal that would have the following functionalities and features:

  • Management of products and discounts by suppliers/sellers
  • Registration and login functionality for suppliers and consumers
  • Download discount coupon of products
  • List of featured products and news on home page
  • Vertical menu on left side that shows all categories and sub-categories of products
  • Advanced search by product name, category, and supplier’s store location in distance of miles
  • Management of supplier’s account by administrator
  • Integration with social networking sites Facebook and Twitter
  • Compatibility with mobile device
  • Integrated payment gateway for supplier registration
  • Search suppliers by pin code and distance in miles

The Solution

Silver Touch as the development company has proposed to develop website in ASP.NET C# 4.0 with backend as MS SQL Server 2008 and web server as IIS 7.0 or 7.5 based on the client’s requirements. Silver Touch also has proposed to integrate the application with 3rd party extension of:

  • Intuit payment gateway for online payment
  • Social networking site Facebook and Twitter

LanguagesASP.Net, C# 4.0
