You.gr is the flagship eCommerce portal of Quest Online, a member of Quest Holdings. In order to stay competitive after several years in the greek market, Quest Online decided to go ahead with a complete re-platforming project instead of incrementally enhancing its existing infrastructure.
- Performance scalability. Transition from an in-house hosting infrastructure to a cloud based service
- Platform flexibility. Better control of processes and workflows; modernization of frontend maintenance
- Platform extensibility. Ability to natively extend the new platform with both frontend and backend functionality
- Back-end management capabilities. Streamline the product maintenance workflows, require less IT staff for maintenance work
- Enhanced end user experience. Add modern web features to the end user
The project development scope included
- full reimplementation of the front and backend functionality of the website using ASP.net
- complete integration with the company’s ERP system (SAP R3)
- a tool suite for catalog batch updates
- delivery of the complete solution through the Windows Azure cloud service.
You.gr is the first greek eCommerce portal to be hosted on Windows Azure Platform as a Service, helping bring down infrastructure costs while providing for an infinitely scalable service.
