The challenge

Bowens was in need of help with improving and streamlining their existing web application. They were using a combination of various technologies, including VueJS, NodeJS, Kubernetes, microservices, and third-party integrations, which created a complex and challenging platform. To address these issues, Bowens approached Arcadian Digital, a company specialising in providing technical solutions for complex custom web applications. Arcadian Digital was an ideal choice for Bowens because of their expertise in delivering scalable and efficient solutions for similar projects

Our approach

Together, we developed a roadmap and integration plan for the new functionality and enhancements required to grow their digital capability. This would also enhance the user experience for both retail and trade customers.

This agile working arrangement allowed both teams to remain nimble on a large product that required fortnightly releases and changes based on market and customer demands.

The outcome

Since beginning work with Bowens, we have made substantial enhancements with functionalities such as:

  • A trade portal
  • Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) integration
  • New payment gateway integrations
  • Re-architecting infrastructure and database to support growth
  • Micro-service consolidation
  • A ‘buy now, pay later’ integration
  • A number of UX and customer journey enhancements

In addition to the booming building industry in Australia at the moment, the site has helped Bowens grow its digital offering and increasingly help them compete as an industry leader.

We continue working with them to further improve their website and our relationship with Bowens remains strong.
