For SELISE, successful collaborations are not those that end upon delivery, but those that perpetuate through time to develop into partnerships. As such, we have always stayed strong in our motive to help partners adopt emerging innovations and reimagine the way they could function.
With that very mindset, SELISE was given the challenge to simplify the transactional complexities that lie at the heart of the cooperative business domain. The primary goal was to take over the share calculations and transaction monitoring to a modern platform. The platform would eventually make subscription to shares easy and attractive, thus allowing the cooperative owners to manage their businesses more efficiently.
This particular challenge, provided to SELISE by the Vienna based CCF team, was proving to be rather exciting. CCF, which is an abbreviation for Crowd Cooperative Funding, is an initiative launched by employees of the Austrian Cooperatives Association (ÖGV) who founded a separate cooperative named “CrowdCoopFunding eG”. Since its inception, it has been dedicated in the purpose of the revolutionising the cooperative business sector with its propitious business model.
After a series of intense discovery sessions, SELISE developed the Coop Center– a modern marketplace for cooperatives and potential investors. The Coop Centre has been built on Django- a framework developed using Python. With this backend, CCF is equipped with better scalability as they grow. On the front end, Angular JS has been adopted, giving the platform a state of the art user interface which is clean and modern. With PostgreSQL for database, the technology stack is complete.
