Brødboksen

One of the fastest growing companies in Norway.

Raised NOK 25 million in 2017.

Named "The Wizard of the Year" in Norwegian online shopping.

Customer base of 33000, growing rapidly.

Brødboksen is one of the fastest growing companies in Norway which supplies freshly baked bakery products and other grocery items at the doorstep early in the morning.

Vinsol shifted their entire 'then existing' business to a Spree based application where Node was used for API and React for frontend. The system was launched in merely 6 weeks time! For growth and further expansion, experimentation of business ideas is a must and thus we took rapid iterations through the development-release cycles along with managing focus on quality and devising multiple ways and algorithms for making the overall supply chain management more efficient. During this period the customer base grew from 6000 to a whopping 68000. The business experienced exponential growth in other ways as well.

Key features/highlights : 

  • Single click order placement with order creation being done within a second’s time.

  • Advanced packaging system considers parameters like dimensions, temperature, isolated products etc resulting in reduced usage of packing resources.

  • Procurement via intelligent estimate algorithm which uses machine learning and calculates sale/purchase estimates for all products.

  • 'Dynamic routing' prepares custom delivery routes daily, based on demography and count of orders.

  • Automated stock management with power to admin for any overrides (if needed).

  • Dashboard for real time business monitoring and data analysis.

  • Driver App (Android) for well guided and easy deliveries.

CHALLENGE

Initially, to build an interactive and scalable system in a very short span of time and eventually to support the highly agile nature of business, achieve automation in various processes of the supply chain management and deliver a seamless and faster customer experience.

RESULT

A spree commerce based solution in combination with node for API and react for frontend. The application is supported by a robust and extensible architecture coupled with sophisticated algorithms for automation.
