Capital Numbers’ primary goal was to build an online store displaying gifts for cancer patients.
However, when we received this project, we had to fix multiple challenges related to a poor codebase. The existing architecture was buggy which we had to modify with improved code.
We also had to decouple the UI into independent components for smoother integrations and better reuse.
Moreover, the portal wasn’t mobile-responsive, so we needed to make it mobile-friendly.
In short, this project required significant upgrades, for which we needed developers with sound knowledge of a variety of technologies.
- Front-end Dev
- Back-end Dev
Various areas needed fine-tuning. So, Capital Numbers began by removing the existing architectural flaws.
Our developers, well-versed in the latest tech, chose the following stack to rebuild the system.
Node.js was our preferred choice for the backend because of its scalability and code reusability.
Capital Numbers leveraged the above to retool the platform successfully. We fixed poorly structured legacy code and updated the system with modern solutions. Our team introduced new features and enhancements in terms of APIs and UX.
The final output is a scalable, responsive portal where patients (or caregivers) can register to send gifts or donate funds to those struggling with cancer.
Our main contributions included the following:
We could ensure a smooth delivery because of our talented, dedicated team that worked full-time in this project - from phase 0 to release.
As planned, we decomposed the entire architecture into smaller components to improve maintainability.
Caregiver and Patient Logins
We kept the caregiver and patient logins simple by adding a short registration form with just the primary input fields.
High-res Product Display
Our developers showcased high-quality pictures of all the eCommerce products, including post-surgery garments, head wraps, essential oils, anti-nausea tea sets, radiation shields, etc.
We also added online crowdfunding options so that caregivers can send financial support like hospital co-pays or payments for prescriptions for patients.
In addition, we included custom features to personalize gifts so that they are valued and treasured even more.
Our product filtering options narrow down the search and lead customers to precisely what they’re looking for.
We added fields for digital coupons to motivate buyers to purchase more at discounted rates.
Simplified Checkouts and Shipping
To improve order fulfillment, we simplified checkouts and shipment.
Material UI helped us add a mobile-friendly interface that looks great on all devices.
We embedded Google Analytics to get data-based reports on all visitor activities as they move around the site.
User-generated Content (UGC)
With Contentful, our engineers could update all user-generated content that includes stories of hope and survival, peer-to-peer advice, health tips, and other resources.
By implementing each of the above, Capital Numbers could perfectly modernize the legacy system. With multi-stage code review, we could eliminate all bugs and bring the system up to speed.
The platform’s component-driven design is now easier to reuse, maintain, and migrate. Thanks to our engineers who brilliantly tackled all deliverables - from code refactoring, architecture, test to launch.
A Revamped Gift Registry and Crowdfunding Portal
Currently, this revamped platform provides curated collections of gifts that cancer patients need to heal better. Well-wishers can use this portal to send unique gifts to patients while spreading positivity and cheer within the community.
By launching this website, Capital Numbers made gift giving more straightforward and simplified philanthropy for many.
