Major Milestones

In the beginning of April 2010, QSOFT was given the task to design and launch a new online shoe store in a very ambitious two months from start to finish. We completed the project successfully. Sapato has become a dynamically expanding project with consistent growth in sales and an ambitious plan to become a market leader.

With the 1C-Bitrix: Site management platform, we have implemented a scable solution that has been successful in growing alongside the company.

The online store is integrated with the 1C Trade management platform for shoe types, model names, and prices as well as a warehouse program which updates accurate stock numbers in the context of shoe sizes and ships approved orders.

In February 2012, the largest online retailer in Russia “Ozon” announced the acquisition of the online shoe store Sapato.ru.
