Who are Schweizer Päckli?
Schweizer Päckli offers a culinary tour of Switzerland in a box. The company was founded in 2013 as Walliser Päckli by Anna Widmer and Fernando Carlen. They aimed to provide the very best in Swiss regional specialities by partnering with local suppliers. While their business was born from passion for the produce, they recognised the commercial viability of expansion.

Since the early days of the business, the ordering process was mostly manual. A simple WordPress site allowed users to order their package and this would trigger a manual background process for preparing and shipping the parcel. The founders knew their systems inside out, but in order to scale their business, they would need to standardise and automate their business.
What we did
We built a fully automated Laravel platform that would not only streamline the customer experience of choosing and paying for their parcel, but also streamline the background process. We designed a frontend and backend component that would automatically coordinate with suppliers to let them know what is needed and when. The custom admin panel gives the team complete oversight and control.
