The main objective of USnaPP was to provide an online platform to seller and buyer. Our team also realized that the customer needed a lot more: a platform that would become the marketplace for individual operations.
It was, therefore, necessary to provide an extensible and sufficiently robust technology so that the platform remains viable in the long term, that it is a real investment. We decided to build the platform on a base Laravel 5, a modern open-source framework written in PHP.
An important feature of the platform is the location alert system that alerts the buyer when a selected product is available at nearby. It is the ERP behind the transactional site that bridges the seller and buyer of the selected areas and the list available to the user in the Android app.
In addition to the many features typical of an e-commerce site (order cancellation, etc...), the ERP which benefits the administrators of the USnaPP allows them to manage all the operations of the sale, post and buy thanks to the tools of 'automating. Critical data on sales, list updation and other reports are available in a few clicks thanks to intuitive and powerful administrative interfaces.
Created an Android app that provide access to free local classified ads. On the back-end side, Laravel 5 was chosen for its extensibility and for Eloquent, an object-relational mapping (ORM) system implementing Active Record. This ORM allows us to simplify the many complex queries to the database.
