SUPPORTING LOCAL GROCERIES ACROSS THE UK
BUILDING THE MULTI-VENDOR MARKETPLACE
The Hourstore concept developed out of the idea to provide the UK’s local small businesses with a place to reach their customers 24/7, quickly and easily. As Codex Software and the Customer joined forces, the concept turned into a web platform architected as a combination of several interconnected web apps – united by design, but different in features.
TOOLS FOR STORE OWNERS AND CUSTOMERS
CREATING MEANS TO BUY AND SELL ONLINE
The Hourstore platform was developed as 3 separate web apps – for Vendors (shop owners), Customers and Admins. each with the respective standard set of eCommerce features (e.g. browsing stores and items, creating stores and adding items, making and processing orders, payments), extended by some extra functionality (search the stores by ZIP code or geolocation data, dispute resolution, and more).
ENSURING GREAT USER EXPERIENCE
UI, UX AND FRONTEND
We performed a series of UX inspections and architected the fast, intuitive and minimalistic React.js-based interface that fits users of any Internet literacy levels and allows making, processing and delivering grocery purchases as simple as possible.
