DabDental, the leading distributor of professional dental products and equipment in Latvia since 2005, is renowned for its extensive and quality range. Their project “Tavam Smaidam” (For Your Smile) stands as a prime example of how e-commerce can enhance business growth and reach a broader audience.
DabDental faced a challenge – their e-commerce platform was slow, impacting customer experience and sales. Additionally, they struggled with API data exchange issues with their main warehouse system, SKALA, creating further challenges.
Involvement of REDZI Digital:
REDZI Digital was chosen as the new technical partner, thanks to their previous experience and positive reviews. Before the first meeting, REDZI Digital conducted a thorough pre-analysis of the project to precisely understand and identify the existing issues.
Solutions and Improvements:
REDZI Digital took a series of strategic steps to enhance the performance of DabDental’s e-commerce platform:
