Technical Challenges Overcome

We used Magento and tweaked the backend to expose REST API’s. These API’s were used by a custom admin backend built on PHP. The two2 technologies – LAMP and Magento were deployed side by side and kept in synchronization to ensure smooth operations.

Many plugins were also developed and customized in Magento.
