Challenges and Solutions

  • Provide SAP integration

    To integrate SAP Solvd engineers chose WooCommerce for more convenient order management, stock, and shipping control. We added new actions and hooks to start generating a request and sending it to the SAP API

  • Arrange a dynamic tax rate and shipping fee calculation process

    After considering several possible options, our team decided to create a new plugin for calculating the cost of payment depending on the country. If a user is from the USA, dynamic calculation of taxes and shipping charges are now calculated by state. Later we implemented tools for report generation

  • Provide Braintree integration

    We added a new payment gateway for better payment management and routing of cash flows depending on the payment currency

  • Add multilingual support to the platform

    The task was to enable multilingual support including right-to-left languages. Now it works like this: the language is selected automatically depending on the geographic location of the user. Currency/SKU is set based on the selected language

  • Adjust camera rotations to simulate real-life photography

    While integrating an interactive view, Solvd engineers faced the need to perform a real-life simulation and decided to use a wide video for rotation. To calculate the part of a frame that needed to be cut, we operated with current rotation and window sizes
