SearchBAR was requested to create a custom solution for RCL Food Partners, converting an unwieldy spreadsheet of formulas into a dynamic calculator that could be easily accessed on a mobile or desktop device. Using a combination of the WordPress REST API, Custom Fields for data capture and a modern UI using React JS, we delivered a useful and modern tool that has greatly assisted RCL sales agents.
WordPress has proved to be a useful platform, not only for websites but as a great source of information and data capture. WordPress has matured to such an extent that it has shown how extensible it can be in the realm of software development. The WP REST API has truly been a revolution, allowing developers to easily create and adapt an API quickly.
