Denis Kostenko - CEO of the Fifth Element (Fivel).
Fivel was founded in 2012 by a group of engineers. At first, they had only an offline store. Over the time they decided to expand. So, Dmitriy - a co-founder -   came to us with a request to create an online selling platform to reach new audiences and expand their presence. He asked for an easy search and navigation through the large amounts of components they sell to ensure smooth user experience and profit increase.
We made an e-commerce store with a convenient system for searching for goods (BOM), placing, and monitoring orders. The system also provides a possibility to grant individual discounts based on the volume and history of purchases. The process of updating the information about the number of components, their description, and prices was made fully automated, which saves time and optimizes the processes.

Business Tasks We Have Solved

Competitive Advantage

The availability of multiple suppliers and a simple but comprehensive BOM search system among them makes it stand out.
