Die Herausforderung

Publio.pl is an online bookstore belonging to the Agora Group and operating since 2012. It offers readers a rich collection of electronic publications in formats specially adapted for e-reading (Kindle-MOBI, ePUB, PDF) and audio files for listening (MP3). The e-commerce currently contains over 44 thousand e-books and audiobooks, plus nearly 300 press titles.

Publio.pl asked Unity Group to optimize its bookstore to meet the varying parameters and challenges of different devices, such as computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.

  • Due to an increasing range of devices, responsive web design (RWD) was a baseline requirement.
  • This included adapting the service to mobile devices.
  • Better positioning in search engines was also a key objective.
  • Improved usability, while maintaining functional consistency across devices, was also essential.
  • Likewise, the user experience needed to be improved, as a simpler shopping path was a must.
  • Overall, the new site needed to increase sales conversions and lead to greater revenues.

"Our original plan was to only make changes to the front of the store, but Unity Group convinced us to complete a major overhaul. In fact, a new store was created, written in a different technology and using a different framework – a Single Page Application with a rewritten backend and new servers."

Die Lösung

  • From the start, a headless approach was taken. This way, each frontend of the E-commerce solution, regardless of device or platform, is managed from one CMS system.
  • To support mobile, we created a modern Single Page Application (SPA) using the OpenAPI 3.0 standard.
  • Through the use of popular frameworks and libraries, we also ensured Server Side Rendering (SSR).
  • Since SEO was important, SSR also helps content indexing robots to understand the site.
  • The website itself was also redesigned through User Centered Design.
  • HTTPS encrpytion and JSONWeb Token authentication both ensure securuty for customers.

"An undoubted advantage of Unity Group is that they have a team with extensive competences, made up of great developers, analysts and system administrators who can find a solution in a crisis situation with peace of mind, supported by knowledge and experience. They are people who listen to the client’s needs and flexibly adapt to the situation. There were moments when it seemed that the technology would beat us, but we did it and the whole team deserves big words of appreciation and thanks for carrying out such a complicated process."
