Challenges of Testing B2B2C Supply Chain Analytics Tools

The domain of food and beverage supply chain platforms has its unique and complex challenges, as this sector, while being diversified, lacks a comprehensive and user-friendly approach to effective and timely ingredient sourcing. That’s why our client wanted to solve these problems by building an all-in-one handy solution that can seamlessly connect SMEs, suppliers, and buyers on a global scale.

Thus, Opply decided to create a highly reliable tool for supply chain management that will not only smooth out the sourcing of ingredients but also creates a transparent and sustainable food and beverages supply chain ecosystem throughout the world.

They started to build the product with their in-house engineering team and soon realized they need additional on-demand specialists in quality assurance to strengthen their team. To ensure the utmost quality and performance of Opply's platform, the chosen QA team needs to overcome the following challenges:

  • Collaborate effectively with Opply's development team, manage project timelines, and provide accurate task assessments to guarantee the project's smooth execution;
  • Thoroughly test the robust back-end system and the admin panel of the future platform, handling complex computations and a massive amount of data on the costs and descriptions of the goods;
  • Test the user-friendly interface and ensure that it simplifies complex supply chain processes and provides a seamless experience for both buyers and sellers;
  • Propose timely optimizations and give professional advice to the project’s QA strategy and development process;
  • Test the system's security measures and performance to safeguard sensitive information and guarantee a seamless user experience across the platform.

To tackle these challenges, the client scoured the internet for a competent on-demand QA team and chanced upon our company's online profile. They were impressed by our portfolio with numerous unconventional web applications, deep expertise in the eCommerce domain, and Cloud solutions.

Opply set an introductory call to delve deeper into their ambitious project, and after the call, they entrusted Fively with the task of turning their innovative supply chain mapping tool idea into reality. That’s how our fruitful partnership commenced in the middle of 2022.
