The project scope covered managing products from affiliates, for visitors to easily review the 'essential weekly edit' of featured products or to browse the online catalogue to shop by category and/or brand.
Integrated video and text chat platforms allow for managing chat sessions in the browser with no dependency on software instals from either party.
