Business Requirements

Lack of digital
No access to local farmers
Creating a global network

What was the Problem?

South Africa is home to some of the best agriculture produces and enterprises from around the world trying to get access to the produce of the nation. While international enterprises have access to the South African markets and merchants, client saw that there were no platforms from which the local farmers could directly connect with these enterprises as well as local traders.

What was the Need?

To ensure that the Agriculture domain of Angola gained traction from the world traders, client wanted to create an online marketplace that can give farmers and traders a secure platform to trade. With a long list of pain points identified, client wanted to create a platform where farmers can find all the relevant services from the platform. With this vision, client connected with Zealous System to create a web platform where farmers can not only trade their local produce with the traders and vice versa, but the farmers can also get farming equipments and raw materials, get financial services and legal advice from verified service providers and create an all inclusive digital platform.

A Tough Fight

Business understanding gives you a competitive edge

The client was a non-technical person and he only had the pain points in consideration for the platform. Thus, not only was the scope of the project undefined, but it was also huge as client had an entire e-commerce platform like features in mind. Along with that, to make the platform truly all inclusive, there were also a few third-party software solutions that clients wanted to integrate into the system.

To ensure that the client had a clear vision of the project well before the execution, we helped the client in making informed decisions by converting requirements into well-defined features and then creating detailed wireframes of all the features and functions. With this process not only did our experts helped our client in envisioning and planning the application, but they also conducted the technical feasibility of the project for the client and helped him in effectively planning his agriculture marketplace.
