We all know that Tata Coffee is one of the largest Coffee and Tea brands in India. It is a subsidiary of the Tata empire. Tata wanted to own an eCommerce platform of its own where it could sell its products and jump-start its expansion in the eCommerce sector. Hence, the Sonnets by Tata Coffee development came into place. With this platform, Tata starts offering Tata Coffee exclusively on its own platform and making its official entry into the eCommerce Sector.

Tata Coffee never had a dedicated platform from where they could sell their exclusive coffee products. Tata needed a robust platform that can be used to boost the already hyped coffee products and further can be used as a platform to launch new products later. After the initial discussion, Tata with OrangeMantra decided to create an MVP version of the originally planned eCommerce platform. MVP because Tata needed to understand the customer base they had and hence, wanted to launch only 4 best of their products from around the world on the eCommerce platform.
Furthermore, Tata wanted to create a brand presence with expert SEO practices and digital marketing to let their consumers be aware of their new platform and a better ranking on Search Engine Pages. A proper eCommerce platform would ensure that only the Original Tata products are being delivered to their consumers and no extra is charged for the services. This platform further allows Tata to offer a glimpse of their vast estate to the consumers.

After considering the requirements of Tata Coffee and our experience in developing in the eCommerce industry, we mutually decided to create the eCommerce platform in Magento. Magento is an Open-Source CMS written in PHP language and is supported by PHP based frameworks like Laminas and Symfony. Why Magento?
Magento is a highly robust and flexible framework and is the best option available in the CMS environment right now for eCommerce development. Although a bit Complex to handle, Magento-based platforms are easily scalable and offer merchants to develop a feature-rich, high performing platform that allows them to provide an exceptionally well User-experience.
Another reason for adopting Magento was because, for Tata coffee, This was just an MVP product. Once the platform’s performance is measured, it needs to be converted into a full-fledged eCommerce Website with a lot of customizations and a lot of memory. Magento’s enterprise version is able to handle such a level of heavy customization and memory usage by offering cloud-storage and cloud -hosting, allowing us to develop a high-performance, enterprise-level platform.
Before carrying out the actual Development, Our team of designers created a PSD as a prototype for our client. This helps us in communicating our understanding of their product and depicting how an actual platform would look like. This also helps in saving a lot of time on the development process as our expert developers are skilled enough to convert a PSD to a fully-functional and pixel-perfect Magento Website in no time.
After the development and deployment process, OrangeMantra provided the service of SEO that includes creating backlinks, creating XML, Sitemap, Robot.TXTs. Furthermore, our SEO team spends quality time enhancing the speed and page load speed of the website while ensuring that the platform is completely responsive to attract all sorts of users i.e. from desktop to mobile devices.
Our service further included kick-starting the sales process on the website. In order to achieve this task, our team created a number of social media channels across every major platform to create a brand’s presence. To be fair, we already had an upper hand in this process as Tata Coffee is already a known brand across the country. Still to lure consumers from traditional shopping platforms to a newly created and dedicated Coffee platform is a challenging task. Yet our team handled the project with ease and leveraged the power of digital media as well as paid marketing to jump-start the selling process.
