Although the vetting process wasn’t long, the team at Sprii had previous experience working with other nearshore software development companies, so Poland was a safe bet for them. They wanted to ensure that the communication flow between their team and the technology partner would be effortless and conducted without any interruptions.
While the ELISA team was confident about the technologies they wanted to use for developing the application (Vue and Ionic), they also wanted to differentiate themselves from the competitors. They decided to do that by targeting not only larger companies but also small and medium-sized businesses. Sprii is an ideal live selling tool for this type of enterprises which is unusual as they're not in the target audience for other similar ecommerce solutions available on the market.
The team at ELISA wanted to support local companies, and that’s why the planned tool had to be easy to use and accessible to almost anyone, even people who are not tech-savvy and have not used similar products before.
Key challenges of the project included:
- Integrating the product with the Facebook API for an accessible live selling experience
- Developing a plug-and-play solution that could be used by any business owner
- Reaching local businesses, regardless of their size and scale
