About The Client​

DERMPRO is a hosted e-commerce and marketing platform designed specifically for the aesthetics services industry.

The client’s eCommerce system was based on a complex cumbersome infrastructure, which required plenty of time and resources to support. They were looking for a reliable DevOps consultant, who would help them set up a much more efficient process. Specifically, they needed our assistance to automate some of the tedious routine operations, reduce deployment time and enhance application build and release process to make the system more resilient and transparent.
