Business Requirement:

The automotive industry in Lisbon is quite competitive, the same as in other regions. It was getting highly difficult for an individual with a garage to manage the entire operations efficiently. In an effort to bring together all the functions of the garage under one umbrella, the client had a requirement of website app development to keep all the information precisely and can be used as and when required.


We at RailsFactory selected Ruby on Rails as the ideal technology for achieving this objective. Leveraging cutting-edge programming languages and frameworks, intuitive UI/UX designs, and agile development practices, our team crafted a high-performance, feature-rich website that is user-friendly and secure.

The Company:

Client SA is part of the Auto-Industrial Group, serving as the official distributor and repairer of new and used Renault and Dacia cars in Lisbon. Established in 1970, Client SA has been dedicated to automotive services for nearly half a century. With facilities in Alcântara (Western Lisbon) and Olivais (Eastern Lisbon), the company offers personalized service delivered by a professional and highly qualified team.

Challenges Faced:

A reluctant start it was! In addition to business requirements, there was a series of technical requirements which were vital for the very existence of the business. The team had to overcome the difficulties related to precarious aspects of domain research, besides building up a team of domain experts and SMEs in a short duration of time, while making the client understand the technical scenarios of the project. Moreover, the proposed project was meant to empower customers on a day-to-day basis.

The main task was to make a smooth, easy-to-use, convenient system which can be useful, even for people who are totally unaware of any kind of technical stuff and cannot use websites for registering the car, making payments etc. all into the system.

Our Approach:

In an effort to give the client a complete makeover of the project from integrating all his manual maintenance of all the car dealers to shifting them into an online platform, our developers created a website which included all the specifications and functionalities the client was looking forward to.

Our dedicated team conducted research on understanding the local market- what most of the people in Lisbon were looking for in a car in their own area. Some of the things our team did was to optimise the site for location specific keywords and that helped the search engines to understand what the site was all about.

Solution Offered:

The client has chosen RailsFactory as the solution partner for this project due to the all-round technical expertise and years of experience in developing scalable, user-friendly applications solutions in RoR. We provided the requisite end-to-end online setup solution for the client’s requirement.

Technologies: RoR, Ruby, HAML, Kendo (Plug-ins)

Benefits to the Customer:

The adoption of Ruby on Rails code and the use of HAML instead of HTML have proven highly effective, providing the client with exceptional visibility into car dealings in the region. Moreover, the project has significantly expanded their customer base, much to the client's satisfaction.

Following are few benefits client had after using our services:

  • — This new site has allowed the client to push the envelope for selling cars online and do a larger percentage of the sales process on their website
