Due to the changes on the automotive market and the desire of Volkswagen Group to start selling parts online, we have prepared a concept for creating a B2B sales platform operating throughout the country. Poland was selected by Volkswagen AG as a pilot country to test this sales model.

Key challenges

  • Developing a modern, e-commerce platform in the NORA sales channel
  • Adding integrations with existing systems: accounting, financial, parts base, VIN decoder
  • Creating a mechanism for assigning parts to a brand, model, year, engine type and many other features

Technologies and methodology

PHP 7.4
Symfony 4.4
Angular

Project outcome

In the pilot version of the project, the system was supplied with 1 million parts. We took care of the platform's efficiency, assuming a load in the form of a large number of orders, communication between multiple systems, exchange of huge amounts of information and work based on up to several million items. One of the key features was the potential for scalability - we have prepared the final system to be ready to receive several million parts in future.
