With many vendors facing difficulties in engaging with their client-base due to the current crisis, DIMO digital developed an e-commerce platform to fill in the void. In the space of 4 days, the team developed a fully functional platform that allows customers to register, purchase products, and pay instantaneously via credit or debit card.
The platform allows vendors to increase their customer-base, reduces the need for phone-call orders and also allows them to utilise Pick My Load deliveries.
This is the first e-commerce development carried out internally by DIMO and is currently utilised in conjunction with the Pick My Load operations for Laugfs (LPG gas), Gamu Gamu (essential items), with several non-essential vendors queued for launch after the curfew period.
Users can visit the site at store.dimodigital.lk, add their items to the cart and pay for them instantaneously, safely and securely.
The platform offers built-in banner ads, and in-depth analytics into what products were viewed the most, which times were the most popular for the site, allowing the ability to better position products on the site.
Shortly thereafter, the team developed another e-commerce solution for TownChic to provide essentials to the Maldivian expat community in Sri Lanka, who are facing logistical challenges in sourcing essentials.
