Solution from agora:
  • AGORA-based cloud B2B portal able to handle heavy loads, high trade volumes and the simultaneous activities of hundreds of dealers.
  • A dealer portal is specifically designed around the needs of the tire market: lots of small buying companies and urgent book tires for a specific customer.
  • Initially, Tire Solutions LLC preferred a standard AGORA backend with a basic interface for its B2B portal. It was customized in design and usability in a short time. A modern SPA application model with React JavaScript was used for this purpose.
  • A standard component base was used for comfortable implementation. In this way, the development of custom components was avoided, thus speeding up the implementation process.
  • A personal account with personalized prices, catalog, contracts and special offers is provided for each user in a one-stop shop.
  • The wholesale portal is integrated with 1C. Balances of goods are available in real-time. Reservation is available. External API allows dealers to integrate into a B2B personal account on the portal.
  • Electronic document interchange for sales transactions and other documentation is available within the portal.
  • Export Manager module (PIM, or Product Information Management) to upload or export data to other systems, for example, to external marketplaces or online shops. The selection by assortment and filter to upload the required content in different formats (Excel, Yml, or others) is available.
  • Automatic collection of analytical data and generation of reports.

  • Export Manager (Product Information Management) to upload product information to external marketplaces, online shops, or other systems. Sorting by item and by categories is possible. Different export formats are available (Yml, Excel, etc.).
  • The intelligent search engine ElasticSearch allows selecting items by wheel size, vehicle model, manufacturer and other characteristics.  A proprietary compatibility database (product-matching) is used to ensure the most accurate and fastest search.
  • Automatic analytical data collection and report generation.

Solution features. Within this b2b e-commerce case study a new model of implementation was carried out for the B2B portal of AutoExpert. A personal product manager was assigned by AGORA. Full outsourced technical support for the project was provided: from obtaining customer needs to delivering specific technical solutions. The convenience is in direct communication with the developer. A specialist from the AGORA side was provided, instead of a manager from the customer's company. This results in a direct and correct solution to the customer's request, with control of the final technical solution. Maximum professionalism and experience in implementation support.
