I was asked to be a technical consultant by Ibiza Delivers, an exciting Ibiza-based start-up, that aims to be the Balerics answer to Ocardo. They wanted a robust eCommerce store with real-time functionality to enable a multitude of advanced requirements including Multiple suppliers with perishable stock, Warehouse packaging, Member based services and Lorry distribution management.
With my significant eCommerce experience, having technically directed the likes of All Saints, Reiss and Gants eCommerce stores, they came to me seeking professional advise on the best approach to take.
I setup a Lamp testing server running Magento, researched and installed the suitable extensions and created a test site in order for them to assess the proposed route of action albeit with some bespoke advanced functionality missing.
Having proved the concept to them in was then responsible for the selection of a suitable company to facilitate the remaining advanced, bespoke customisations and host the service with watertight SLA.
I am retained on an ad hoc basis and continue to offer technical and creative advise.
