Customized Product Sorting

TNG developed a sorting algorithm for one of the largest European online shopping communities in the fashion market. The algorithm reorders the displayed products in real time, taking into account the community's buying behaviour as well as that of the individual customer. Visitors to the shop are shown the products that fit their individual size profile first, so that customers no longer need to use a size filter to find a suitable garment.

The size profile management can be accessed, thanks to AWS, via a simple REST API. To ensure the best possible performance, an elastic search plugin was also developed. This is installed directly in the shop system and is responsible for sorting the results list.

Marketing Automatization / Retargeting

We integrated Google Tag Manager for a large eCommerce client. This enables the retargeting of customers using automatic targeted ads and mailings. The campaigns are based on data from product views, carts and orders. Using Google Tag Manager also allows integration of further services, as well as supporting detailed data analysis.

Major Upgrade

We upgraded the basic platform for an eCommerce client. This platform forms the heart of the application, offering solutions for customer and production managements as well as the possibility to model the entire commercial process.

As well as migrating the database to be able to meet new requirements, we performed the necessary adaptations to the interfaces of the Java application running on the platform platform. This enabled a modern software configuration with more up-to-date versions for Tomcat, Spring and Java.

Replacement of a Legacy-Web-Application

We supported a client with an online platform in the development of a website, using ES6, React and Fluxible with high test automation. The backend employs a microservice architecture with Scala, Kafka and MongoDB. After several months of development, the legacy version of the top entry page was replaced by a newly developed page with responsive design.

Modern Customer Portal for eCommerce provider

We supported an eCommerce provider in the migration of more than a million customers to a new customer self-service portal. The new portal comprises a single-page application (SPA) in JavaScript that accesses the Java backend via a Hypermedia REST API (HATEOAS). Parts of the existing portal were integrated into the new portal to retain the complete functionality in corner cases.

Relaunch and migration of an eCommerce shop

We fully integrated an acquired eCommerce store into an existing Hybris shop system, migrating the complete customer account data, including addresses and vouchers. The goal: to allow expansion of the international customer base. The migration was performed without any need for downtime in the target shop, with the fully automated Hybris import running on multiple servers. By migrating the password-encoding algorithm, the migration was also transparent for customers. CMS content and individual icon sprites allow the new integrated shop to be individually branded.
