Since 1938, Vivi Kola, a Swiss classic with 100% Swiss ingredients, has remained a local favorite.
ViVi Kola and what is unique about it?
Vivi Kola is a caffeinated, carbonated soft drink with a natural cola-nut flavor. It's made with 12% less sugar than conventional colas and only natural flavors, including wild kola nuts from Cameroon and Fairtrade vanilla from Madagascar.
Vivi Kola has been proudly crafted in Switzerland since 1938, an unwavering testament to their commitment. Distinctive and bold flavor, the essence of Vivi Kola, is derived from their original recipe that exclusively employs natural ingredients. For instance, kola nuts are sourced from Cameroon and vanilla from Madagascar, adhering to both quality and ethical standards in our beverage production.
TECHNICAL CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS
WordPress – Frontend
PHP – Backend
Enhancing Website Security
The site was getting hacked with malicious code, and detecting the malicious code among thousands of files appeared almost impossible. To address this issue, we took several security measures. We updated the backup files to ensure data integrity. Furthermore, we improved the site’s security by upgrading the plugin and theme. Additionally, we initiated various security features, including blocking search engine spiders from indexing the admin section, setting the appropriate file permissions for the .htaccess files, and enabling a Web Application Firewall to fortify the site against potential threats.
Resolving Website URL Redirection Issue
The ViVikola website URL was experiencing unwanted redirection to another URL, posing a significant issue. To fix the issue, we changed server and FTP credentials, updated plugins and WordPress packages, scanned the website for impacted files and removed them, and restricted access to the sensitive wp-config.php file to prevent further issues.
Mitigating CEO's Inbox Spam Overflow
The CEO’s inbox was being inundated with an incessant flow of spam emails originating from the “Contact Us” feature on the company’s website, creating a significant issue. To solve the issue, we added Google security Captcha to filter out spam and automated submissions. We also improved the sanitization process of form inputs to prevent unwanted messages and maintain a clutter-free CEO mailbox.
Enhancing Elastic Search Functionality
Revamping the search functionality was a pivotal task. Our mission encompassed implementing the ability to select additional services (such as breakfast, extra bed, etc.) during hotel room bookings. These services featured distinct price options, and multilingual support was a crucial requirement.
SS4U’s customized CRM and ERP solutions have become the foundation of our Operations and Sales teams, greatly improving our processes.
