Project Services

Gifteefy is a website which caters to the gift sending needs and develops a service based web-portal for seekers. The website is used as a medium for buying gifts in form of online vouchers which can be transacted online as discounts on purchases. Users can send invitations to their friends on social media and attach other friends in order to send a combined gift. They can even send a video which can be sent over an email. The gifts can also be delivered physically or virtually otherwise. The web-portal is a one-stop solution with a secure facility to make online payments and buy the desired gift. The administrator of the website manages the purchases of the users of the website. Admin can update any page of the website and also add info of newer solution heads or additions to existing ones and also update any new services that the owner would like to extend to the customers. The admin cannot modify any order and can neither alter nor change any part of the order. Admin can manage website’s global type information like contact us sections, email id, cost of a gift item etc. Global settings are pre-defined so they can be modified only.

The user has the following workflow to use the website:

  • Login and register on the website
  • Follow the instruction to manage their profile
  • Select their Gift voucher
  • Select multiple vouchers from various categories
  • Create a gift card
  • Bundle the gift
  • Post-delivery address
  • Make Payments
  • Confirm time and date
  • Invite other friends through social media
  • Upload a video
  • Send it to the friend over an email

Industry Specifics

Gifts just lift the mood and emotions attached with any occasion or festival. Conventional gift giving is now rapidly changing and seeing a new outlook. With technology making everything extremely convenient, how can the gifting industry stay behind? People now demand an ecommerce platform where they can where they shop for gifts which are unique and different. Thus Gifteefy is a perfect way to do this. The customers have an opportunity to buy unique gifting solutions and extend them to friends online while the providers have an opportunity to provide quality services and have competitive pricing policy which not only enhances the overall experience but also helps in the progress of the industry.

Implementation Strategy

The purpose for making this website is to design a platform which provides a one roof solution space for customers for all their gifting related needs. The aim is to allow people to have an elaborate choice and only select the voucher card which suits them the best from a sea of options. While creating the website, we provided options for customer and admin, both who have individual monitoring handles from where the customer can make purchases and also use other services. The status of the orders and the course of payment which would be managed online would also be visible to both sides. The most challenging part of the project was to bring to functionality the transparent payment system and the individual monitoring handles that would be provided to both sides. Whenever, the user wishes to buy a gift they have to login & buy the respective gift solution. The platform would automatically monitor purchase and complete it/them. The user can also invite friends over social media and combine them in purchasing the gift collectively or make a video which can be sent over to the person reflecting the love they share for each other. The website is designed in Spanish but can be translated into regional language or English for customer comfort. The website was designed with responsive user interface as many users today prefer to view the website on their smart-phones.

Thoughts

By developing this website we gained experience in making a platform which not only provides solutions but also one to attach emotion to the products. Developing a selection management system and connecting it with social media was a big challenge. By working on this website, we had the pleasure of bringing people closer. The need management of the users who could have multiple requirements was also a challenge. We bettered our skills at client satisfaction, customer solutions and payment management, etc. We also gained experience with social media connectivity. We are thankful for the opportunity and proud to deliver with our technical expertise and implementation capabilities for this website.
