Online Portal Development for Software Distribution

About the Client

The client was the market leader in commercializing its free web browser during the 1990’s and the early part of 2000’s.  The client was the pioneer in developing the concept of accessing the internet through web browsers.

Business Challenge

In the early 2000’s when internet speeds were slower, ssers found it difficult to download and install their browser over the internet. The client wanted to offer its users an option to request the browser software installable through mail for a small convenience cost.

The Client decided to develop an e-commerce portal for this purpose, and was looking for a software development partner. Silicus was chosen for the following reasons:

  • Strong track record of developing high-traffic e-commerce solutions
  • Offshore software development capabilities to deliver within their budget constraints
