Toy-StoreYoung at Heart Toys started in September 2014 from the owner’s home, selling game and toys from leading brands like Playmobil and Fisher-Price from a mobile, pop-up shop at local markets. They used basic spreadsheets to manage sales and inventory, but knew as their business grew that would want a business management solution that could not only manage sales, but also integrate with their existing 3rd party eCommerce portal and support their mobile business needs.

Since the project was a greenfield project started from scratch, planning had to be precise, keeping in view both the existing business and future business plans. Another challenge was that the project had to be completed within a short span of time.
