In Part 3 and our final edition of 11.11 Highlights, we now place the limelight on our Foxes in the Tech & Innovation team! Being part of a fast-paced, ever-changing industry; UrbanFox faces the growing demands of eCommerce and urban logistics.
Technology enhancement and system robustness is the foundation of a strong tech-driven company, and here at UrbanFox, we are proud of the achievements of our Tech team!
Our Project Managers, Full-Stack Developers, Infrastructure and Multi-Channel Commerce Platform teams took on the daunting task of keeping the company up to speed this 11.11!
The first team comprises of Project Managers; often, they are the key personnel involved in overseeing projects and development testing for our back-end systems. Trust us when we say they have it tough, coordinating with the other functions and business partners on assessing and understanding their needs, process flows and system upgrades!
While we first started with integration to Lazada, today we are integrated with Qoo10, Shopee and Zalora as well! Our Project Managers were the fore runners in developing the internal systems and programs to the ever-growing needs of the marketplace(s).

Working closely with our Project Managers, Full-Stack Developers are placed in charge to maintain and develop our multi-array of systems (Transport Management System, Warehouse Management System, Order Management System, etc.)
Taking on an important function, they are our first line of defence against threats during peak seasons and especially so this 11.11!
A day-to-day in the life of our Developers also includes the maintenance and enhancement of system uptimes, reviewing and troubleshooting any system flaws.
Game on! Our Full-Stack Developers are really friendly! (just them being serious at work here)
Another key function in our Tech team comprises of our Foxes in Infrastructure. They ensure system robustness during the peak campaigns, allowing for spike in transactions and the surge in loading of our network.
Are you a new hire or looking for an equipment upgrade? Our Infrastructure team is also in charge of equipping our Foxes with the correct equipment and resources to handle the 11.11 peak campaign.
With a key focus on network security, we rely heavily on Infrastructure for mission success this 11.11!
Multi-screens? Multi-task? Most certainly, multi-talented Foxes in our Infrastructure team!
Multi-Channel Commerce Platform (MCCP) Team
Our last and final team in our 11.11 Highlights is none other than our MCCP team! With the need to manage several marketplaces and back-end systems, our MCCP is the key Order Management System that allows for multi marketplace integrations.
Managing a myriad of requirements – simple, complex and combined listings (just to name a few), the team coordinates with our internal developers and Merchandisers to determine the best course of action for system upgrades.
While shopping this 11.11, our Foxes at MCCP team ensure your orders flow smoothly within our system, communicating with our back end for a complete end-to-end mapping.
