QATAR DEVELOPMENT BANK
Expanding Qatar’s marketplace online.

Developing Qatari Economy

Qatar Development Bank (QDB) was founded to grow Qatar’s private sector and diversify its economy. Now, Qatar Development Bank is a centrepiece to achieving the Qatar National Vision 2030. Qatar Development Bank worked with a large number of Qatari entrepreneurs and enterprises, providing financial and non-financial support to both fresh startups a well-established as well as SME’s.

Our challenge was to design and develop a multi-vendor e-commerce website that is user friendly and easy to navigate (matajercom.qa) for Qatar Development Bank, which is a free platform for small to medium-sized enterprises to establish and drive their products. Furthermore, spreading the importance of online business and creating a portal in English and Arabic.


Extracting the requirements

QDB wanted to create a platform where sellers from - Food, Fashion, Gifts and Stationary could work under a single platform to improve the efficiency of the business. Under the initiative, micro-business owners can utilize the services offered by different entities to grow their business and create an impact on the overall economic development of Qatar. The initiative empowers business owners to access information and resources, to develop and sustain their businesses.

Qatar Development Bank approached Excrin to develop a multi-vendor e-commerce marketplace. They had one thing in mind, and that was to improve the national economic development cycle by providing local entrepreneurs, small and medium-sized ventures with a wide range of financial & non-financial, promotional, developmental, and advisory products under one roof.


Sophisticated e-Commerce Website

Since the scope of the project was very extensive and the client had many ideas regarding additional features, the key to success was focusing on the main functionality of the website. We adopted an efficient approach and divided the project into versions. As it was a multi-vendor marketplace, different modules were developed to attract the vendors, resellers and affiliates to the marketplace.

Our team built a scalable architecture that is fully responsive and user-friendly. Furthermore, we integrated multiple things such as creating an easy shopping cart template which allows users to display items based on the different categories, multi-vendor portal, improved navigation, better overall UX design and a dedicated omni store page among many others. The website also featured strong navigation and effective fulfilment and payment options.

Under the initiative, micro-business owners can utilize the services offered by different entities to grow their business and create an impact on the overall economic development of Qatar. The initiative enables business owners to access information and resources, to grow and nurture their business.
