The platform offers retailers the most comprehensive software solution for planning and shopping, together with mobile, social and marketing tools. For brands, it represents an extensive advertising network.

The client is a USA provider of software services for the eCommerce and retail sectors. Its software platform, established over a decade ago, has grown to be an industry leader in digital grocery.

Collaboration

When approaching Fortech in 2008, our client needed a trustworthy, committed and flexible long-term software engineering partner that could build the required capabilities and would have the capacity to scale them up as its digital business grows.

The relationship started with a small prototype that would prove Fortech’s technical abilities, as well as validate the cultural match between the two parties: the already existing development team on the client’s site and the remote team at Fortech.

Soon after that, in 2009, with no prior knowledge in iOS and Android, Fortech built from scratch the Mobile team, touching both platforms.

Currently, the team comprises more than 150 dedicated people, covering a multitude of disciplines in the areas of software engineering and support & operations.
