The Business Need

In an effort to have customers purchase more accessories with each plant, the company wanted to host a platform (mobile application) in which the customers are not only shown the new line of products but they can also see beautiful settings & Arrangements (Inspirations) made from the available products.

This will inspire the customers to buy more finished product and associated products. The whole idea was to cross-sell the other products by posting inspirational setups and also engage the app users by offering various activities that they can do for themselves.

There comes FLORA AND MORE platform including mobile applications and minimalistic backend providing administration and support facilities.

The Solution

FLORA AND MORE is already married to III Party System for management of its customer, inventory, orders and transactions. It’s a fully developed system which is involving and is the backbone of the complete system.

The new solution has to work in tandem with the existing III Party System for all its operations and needs.
