Magento 2 Website Development Tender – Hardware and Software

Magento 2 Website Development Tender – Hardware and Software

We would like to develop a new B2B website on the Magento 2 platform incorporating both the Brand and store features on one platform.


B2B Magento 2 ecommerce site and Server with IT Hardware

Awarding body K-Tech Suspension Limited

EST. START DATE: 01/11/2019
EST. END DATE: 31/03/2020


Ktech Suspension LTD as a company has grown steadily since its inception in 1995 to a Global British brand today. To move the company forward further investment to our IT and Business Management System as outlined in this proposal is vital. Our workforce is located within a 20-mile radius so we feel with the right investment Ktech can continue to expand and be a reliable and increasing source of employment for the East Midlands, both apprentices, and industry professionals.

We have identified a core weakness in our business operations with regards to our full IT mainframe – both hardware and software. Our remote off-site access is limited, (or none existent), which is vital if we would like to expand the business in different areas. Our plan is to take on a further Design engineering apprentice in early 2020, which would also mean a requirement for an additional computer station and relevant software.

We would like to develop a new B2B website on the Magento 2 platform incorporating both the Brand and store features on one platform.
This tender consists of two parts, IT hardware, and B2B e-commerce site.
