Minna Parikka designer shoes are known for their playful aesthetic as well as undeniably high quality. She has created near iconic shoes such as the Bunny Sneaker in 2014 and has since amassed tons of fans across the globe for her creations. We partnered with Minna Parikka to deliver a new online store serving a multitude of markets, currencies and delivery methods.
The stunning design was made in-house at Minna Parikka’s design studio and our job was to deliver a world-class technology solution to complement it using Magento as the platform, running smoothly in the cloud of course.
Working with Iona has been very quick paced and extremely flexible. Special mention for flexibility, they have reacted to important requests around the clock.
Kotipizza, Scandinavia’s largest fast casual food franchise, approached us in 2017 to develop a new mobile app experience to its customers that offered a new fun way to ordering pizza – the Pizza Button. Users could create their own favourite pizza in the app and get it delivered to them with a single click of a button.
“Kotipizza Äppi” quickly became the most downloaded app in it’s category for both Android and iOS. Kotipizza’s online storefront was also in need of a complete renewal.
The old IBM WebSphere-based solution was performing poorly and was expensive to maintain. We worked alongside Kotipizza’s main IT partner, Solteq, and their digital marketing agencies to deliver a state-of-the art frontend solution that scales endlessly and is easy to maintain. The new Kotipizza.fi is built using Node.js and Angular.js, that brings enormous performance benefits and personalization capabilities that regular off-the-shelf solutions can’t compete with.
