Hemmalivs is an online store letting people in the Helsingborg area of Sweden do their grocery shopping from home. In addition to being very convenient for the customers, the efficient deliveries are also more friendly to the environment than if people were to drive to and from the supermarket themselves.

When the developers of their original system went out of business, Hemmalivs asked us to help them design and develop a brand new system to replace to old one.

We simplified the user interface and made the design feel more open and welcoming, while still being familiar to old customers. We used Javascript and Ajax to streamline the shopping experience for customers.

The Ruby on Rails-based backend integrates with the payment gateway Netgiro to allow customers to pay with credit card or direct payment from their Swedish bank accounts. The backend also integrates with Hemmalivs existing order and logistics system.
