Examples of Online Barter using iScripts eSwap

by Milan Mathew

iSwap is an online community with a common interest in swapping selected products. The experience is aimed at families with children involved in the swapping of collectibles. What this also creates is the chance for parents to be more involved with their child’s online activity thus creating the family experience.

Mr. Stefan, the owner of iSwap contacted iScripts two years back with the wonderful idea of a fully automated national swap shop. We found our online swapping software, iScripts eSwap as a preliminary business solution for iSwap.

That was a decision! Mr. Stefan was with a series of requirements for his website to be add-on to iScripts eSwap, and developers at iScripts put their effort to bring the best result to Stefan in meeting his business goals. Finally, we found the result in the form of https://www.iswaponline.com/

Our client, Mr. Stefan says about the project:

“In August 2016 I began a journey in bringing an idea about offering a fully automated national swap shop to life. Having no experience in web design, running my own business or project managing in IT I was reliant on a professional outfit with strong, knowledgeable and open advisors who I could trust to support me and drive the iSwap project with expertise.

Initially, I spoke to Jon Skulemowski, Who gave me confidence in iscripts ability to deliver the project. John took the time for a number of calls across from the USA to my base in the UK. He set out how the project would progress, be reviewed and the timescales involved. John was there throughout the project to iron out any concerns I had. He did a great job and I was impressed with the knowledge he maintained despite not being on the development team but maintaining the overview.

I then met Dalu B Raj, who leads the development team in India. Dalu and I spoke on a weekly basis via Skype. We set weekly goals that were consistently met. Dalu leads his team, making his instructions clear. I received detailed minutes of our meetings which gave me the confidence that the team understood my expectations.

The initial project utilized an existing iscripts e-swap package however whilst the principles were similar my end result required a lot more and iSwapOnline.com is a slick professional website that has exceeded my expectations and needs.

I ask myself three questions.

  1. Have I achieved everything I set out to with iscripts?  Yes
  2. Would I use iscripts again? Yes
  3. Would I recommend iscripts? Yes”

Thank you, Stefan, for the wonderful feedback!
