Tech-Product Co. Service Offering: Technology Partner and Solution Provider
ClearForMe manages the most comprehensive ingredient database on the market. Their solution/product is targeted towards eCommerce retailers who wish to be able to map ingredients across SKUs so that customers can find or eliminate products – with or without specific ingredients – more easily.
The company’s founder approached Axioned (back in 2017) with the solution/product idea, stemming from her own personal experience with a painful skin allergy due to a specific dermatology ingredient.
Due to a lack of standardization in ingredient nomenclature used across dermatology products and eCommerce retailers, it was annoyingly difficult for her to figure out which products she could buy/use vs. not. For example: The ingredient “formaldehyde” is often disguised by up to 12 different synonyms and Vitamin C has over 35!
What They Needed
ClearForMe’s goal was (and is) to solve for a lack of standardization in ingredient nomenclature: providing an API-solution to eCommerce retailers that enables them to “tap into” ClearForMe’s proprietary database (of product ingredients, synonyms, and definitions), thereby enabling consumers to more easily find or eliminate products with a certain ingredient.
ClearForMe came to Axioned to support with the the initial development, as well as continued roll-out and enhancement, of their API/eCommerce solution.
The first engagement in the ClearForMe/Axioned relationship was to evaluate and establish an optimal path forward, aka:
- What will the MVP launch include vs. not include?
- How will it (the MVP) be executed, using what technologies, aka tech-stack?
- How will it be architected?
- Which Axioned team members will be needed to execute?
- How long will it take to execute?
Since this first engagement – as well as the subsequent build-out of ClearForMe’s MVP – Axioned continues to support ClearForMe with the ongoing scale and growth of their solution, using an optimal and efficient mix of Axioned developers (MERN stack) and testers, along with the support of a Project Manager.
Axioned was able to help ClearForMe go from “idea to launch”. Today, Axioned continues to support the scale and growth of ClearForMe’s solution, as well as their vision for the future when it comes to supporting eCommerce experiences that help consumers more swiftly find or eliminate products that meet their needs.
