About Implosa

Implosa is a leader in the construction market in Panama, dedicated to the import and sale of plumbing products, electricity, fire protection systems, water infrastructure, gas, hardware and more.

Challenge

Implosa joined Rootstack to develop a complete custom ecommerce, adapting the old system they had previously and including new functionalities.

The adaptation and integration of the new platform with the previous systems in Oracle with the registry of the complete product portfolio was a challenge, not only because of the wide variety of products but also because of the archaism of the structures.

Our Solutions

The final product was an ecommerce platform where the user can view the products by categories, apply filters, manage their shopping cart, and carry out the complete checkout process, with integration with the payment and shipping method, and users management.

Insurance

About SURA

Seguros SURA is a subsidiary of Suramericana S.A., one of the leading companies in the insurance industry, with a history of more than 75 years and with offices in 9 countries. They offer various insurance solutions to their affiliates and year after year they have been characterized by having a technological openness, automating more and more the service they offer to the public, being pioneers in increasingly enhancing their efforts thanks to technology.

Challenge

Just as users can buy all kinds of items online, such as clothing, footwear and food, it is now also possible to purchase health, car and all kinds of insurance through innovative websites such as SURA's. With just a couple of clicks, users can create their policy quote and make the corresponding payment without leaving their home.

But this insurance company needed to enhance its mobile application, so that it would be as functional as its web application. That is why they turned to Rootstack with the need to improve the appearance of their application, also adding a couple of functionalities to raise the quality of the service provided to their affiliates.

Our solution

The UX experts from our Rootstack team evaluated the existing mobile application and made substantial improvements to the graphical interface, modernizing the design and positively transforming the user experience, which translates into greater user satisfaction and conversions.

The client needed the mobile application to be cross-platform and we succeeded, making it work optimally on both iOS and Android devices, covering two of the main operating systems in the mobile device market. Features such as facial and fingerprint recognition were also incorporated, adapting to the characteristics of the most modern smartphones.

What we did was reorder the elements that the application showed on the screen with a more functional and user-friendly design, since there were buttons and certain functionalities that existed, but that went unnoticed by the user due to an ineffective and confusing distribution.

About R4V - OIM
 
R4V is the Regional Interagency Coordination Platform for Refugees and Migrants from Venezuela, a website associated with the International Organization for Refugees (IOM), the United Nations agency for migration. In this web portal, they reflect statistics and information on the aid provided to Venezuelan refugees in South America and the Caribbean in different areas such as education, food and health, among others.

Challenge:
 
The R4V website, while complying with presenting graphics, data, and documents related to its management and collaboration with refugees in countries such as Colombia, Chile, Peru, Argentina, Ecuador, Brazil, Panama, Mexico, Uruguay, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Bolivia, Paraguay and Curaçao, the platform was difficult to navigate and displayed the content in a cumbersome way, since it was dispersed and clustered in a confusing way on the site. In addition, sometimes the way of displaying the graphics was not the most functional for the end-user.

Our solutions:
 
Rootstack completely improved the R4V website, creating a new platform that provides a better user experience to its visitors. It is a site created in a Drupal 8 CMS, quite functional and flexible that allowed the implementation of numerous data widgets to illustrate the statistics with graphs of different styles of tables, bars, pie type, among others.

The visual improvement was considerable: by condensing the statistical information in different types of graphs, the navigability of the web page was transformed, making the task of consulting the available information easier.

The structure of the R4V website is quite particular, totally adapted to the client's needs: when the user enters the portal, they find the general site, which shows all the condensed information of all the South American and Caribbean countries in which the organization collaborates with Venezuelan refugees.

About Minfo KYC
 
Today, many companies are interested in automating data to streamline processes within a company, improving workflow, and at the same time, raising the quality of customer service. This is the main objective of platforms such as Minfo KYC, to be a solution for companies and institutions that need to verify and validate the data provided by their clients, quickly and easily, without complications or delays.

Challenge
 
Minfo KYC is a platform that assists financial institutions and companies in Panama in the task of analyzing and verifying their clients' data, based on the “Know Your Client” policy that is part of Law 23, enacted on April 27, 2015, in that country, against money laundering. To carry out this task, this organization turned to Rootstack, requiring the creation of a website and a mobile application, which would facilitate user registration and allow the creation of a data center that could be accessed by clients affiliated with the Minfo service.

Our solutions

Roostack developed for Minfo a website and a mobile application, both easy to use and with a clean and simple design, which allow the user to enter their essential data to be verified and validated by specialized agents. For this validation, it is necessary that he provide information about his basic personal data, nationality, residence, work, and occupation, as well as other references that may be required.

After the person's profile is validated and confirmed on the platform, their information is available within the website's data center, which can be accessed by any company or institution subscribed to Minfo that requires it. For example, if a person wants to open a bank account in Panama, this banking institution can verify the data of the potential client in Minfo to make sure that he has a good profile and does not have a history of financial crimes.

Challenge:

At Rootstack, a team of expert web developers is always ready to solve the needs of the companies that approach us. In the case of Panamerican World, the head of this news company needed the creation of a modern and functional website, full of components that would allow it, on the one hand, to display textual content and, on the other, to enrich navigation with video modules, photographs, and social networks.

Our Solutions:

We love challenges. For this reason, we supported Panamerican World in the development of their first website, helping them with the design of this, as well as with the implementation of a robust and widely functional CMS, fully adjusted to their business and editorial requirements.

We developed this first version of the site in Drupal, an open-source CMS that has the particularity of adjusting to any need a company has, regardless of the area in which it operates, be it a communication company or e-commerce. Our web developers implemented a robust content publishing system, which offered a user moderation system: it allowed to create a profile of editors, who were authorized to publish the articles uploaded to the CMS by the basic profiles of the platform.

The website had several sections or categories that allowed administrators to define the content according to their area. The layout had a featured news component, which could be changed to suit the editorial needs of the website through a simple function in the CMS. This type of functionality gave the option of customizing the website, displaying tailored content on the Homepage.

Since Panamerican World is a website aimed at a wide audience, we developed a multi-language platform, being available in both Spanish and English. Likewise, a geolocation functionality was implemented, which allowed segmenting the contents according to the IP and the origin of the user who entered this web page.

Heineken was looking to develop an ecommerce store in Shopify to sell its products in Panama. The goal was to work together with some gas stations in Panama and courier service to make the shipment from the store/gas station to the delivery location indicated by the consumer.

Heineken sought help from Rootstack because there is no postal code in Panama and addresses are difficult to identify. In Panama, “corregimientos” are used to be able to indicate the exact address. However, Shopify needs to use the zip code data and does not allow you to create custom fields on the payment’s last page. To add a field, you have to pay a very expensive monthly subscription, and Heineken did not want to subscribe.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

I appreciate the level of communication that exists with all the teammates who interact with me, making it easy to identify and manage needs promptly. There is a clause in the contract that prohibits hiring resources from Rootstack internally within the company. Many times, I have chosen another provider solely because of this condition.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

Also, what we've been improving is the quality of our delivery, ensuring that we conduct sufficient testing to avoid affecting existing workflows with new developments.
