JCommerce specialists are supporting the development of a business system for their Swedish client from the e-commerce industry: Boozt Fashion AB, owner of the Boozt.com online store, with a base of over 1,606,000 active customers.

The beginning of a long-term partnership

Cooperation between JCommerce and Boozt began in 2017 when the client needed support in the field of software development. Earlier on, Boozt had been cooperating with outsourcing companies in India and Vietnam, but over time the company began to require more control over their technical roadmap. Therefore, they decided to start cooperation with IT partners located nearby; the decisive factor when choosing Poland was access to developers with good communication skills. The first project JCommerce was involved in concerned the implementation of a dedicated system using PHP technology. The solution was designed to streamline processes, primarily in terms of ordering. The system is integrated with other systems in the client’s infrastructure that are based on PHP technology. We take great pride in being one of the best PHP development outsourcing companies with many satisfied clients in different countries.

“The developers have provided an excellent service to our full satisfaction and have all been highly skilled and communicative, although the assignments have been very complicated and ambitious. JCommerce has been a professional and flexible partner with a full understanding of our requirements and priorities.”

Jesper Brøndum, CTO Boozt AB
