About the Client

The client is a Canadian company that develops and markets premium natural health products to healthcare professionals and select health food retailers. With the goal to create the world’s most effective natural health products, the company’s product development effort combines critical thinking with the latest scientific research. Established in 2005, the company’s R&D and scientific advisory panels comprise experienced and licensed natural healthcare practitioners in natural ingredients as well as nutraceutical manufacturing. Its sales, customer services, operations, and administration teams work tirelessly to provide its customers with product information and impeccable distribution services.

Business Challenge

The company is progressively revamping its internal business systems to enhance its capacity to quickly process orders to support its growth and scalability. The company’s existing CRM solution was built with older technology that lacked several capabilities. Existing off-the-shelf solutions lacked the features or integrations required for seamless order processing. They decided to invest in a custom-built Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application that would ensure agility and flexibility in order processing.

The company looked to provide its employees a single view of the status of all their existing orders and real-time insights with regard to sales and marketing of their products for demand-focused promotions and better market reach. The company also aimed to leverage the insights to modify its business operations and strategies. The next-gen CRM application needed to be:

A robust, enterprise-grade cloud application

Fluid User Interface to receive, process, and execute orders across channels

Compatible with multiple browsers such as Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari

Trigent Solution

The company partnered with Trigent to develop a ground-up web application customized for their specific business needs. Leveraging the Trigent AXLR8 Labs, the team expeditiously participated in a knowledge transfer effort to understand the company’s existing data flows and processes. The phase further included a series of collaborative discussions regarding software architecture, technical stack, among many other aspects.

Leveraging Trigent’s Product Engineering expertise, the company developed an end-to-end bespoke solution. Trigent’s ninja team transformed the legacy applications into a modern, scalable Cloud Native application. The enterprise-quality application was insight-driven, well-integrated, easy to use, seamless, and agile.

Furthermore, leveraging the Trigent AXLR8 Labs, enabled the organization to streamline and simplify the company’s workflow by providing a connected digital experience in the following areas:
User Management
Order and Credit Management
Product and Pricing Management
Promotion Management
Customer Management

The software architecture was built on the PHP Laravel framework, and tools such as HTML5, VUE.JS, and CSS3 were used as the UI layer.

To enhance user experience, improve efficiency and simplicity, AXLR8 Labs’ team integrated several disparate systems such as Freshdesk, Dataninja, Quickbooks, Moneris, Zapier, and Google Maps, into the framework. The seamless integration ensured continuous scalability, seamless performance, increased agility, and reliability, thereby reducing uncertainty and risk.

Furthermore, Trigent’s team went a step ahead and integrated several marketing tools and platforms such as Mail Chimp and Zoom, to name a few, into the framework. The integrations were instrumental in developing and orchestrating several product promotions and marketing campaigns for better market reach.
Multiple dashboards to analyze CSR, Sales, and Warehouse performances were created leveraging MySQL within the framework. The dashboard included customized reports, providing valuable insights to several teams such as sales, marketing, and operations. Leveraging the Product studio, the team also created a VP Dashboard leveraging Advanced JSON that provided insights to the leadership regarding Year To Date (YTD) sales and other account-specific insights.
