Building a platform without code to buy cars completely online!

We are happy to announce that the HuggyStudio team was behind the building process of Farie.ch! Farie is the platform where you can buy a car completely online and have it delivered to your home. If during the process a condition is not met, you can also return your car within 14 days. Farie was launched in October 2021 and was entirely built with no-code tools.

More about Farie.ch 

Farie.ch was born with the idea of supporting users buying cars online with the thought of everything being done as digitally as possible. 

HuggyStudio leveraged the power of no-code tools —like Bubble.io and Webflow— to build the whole digital infrastructure in just three months of intense collaboration! 

In a conversation with Pascal Kappeler, Chief Product Officer of Farie, he highlighted the value of working with HuggyStudio and how no-code supported the main features built for the platform.

Building and launching a platform in three months without code

What you can currently see at Farie.ch is just the tip of the iceberg. The process of selling cars online is actually a complex one that requires a wide variety of procedures behind the scenes.

What were some of the things built with no-code tools in Farie?

  • Customer facing marketing pages with CRM functionalities
  • A marketplace / inventory of cars with filtering functionalities
  • Detailed car listings with 360 degree images
  • An online checkout process allowing users to add services and car specific add-ons
  • Integrating finance partners with a fully functional leasing calculators
  • Integrating swiss payment providers for down payments
  • Fully integrated logistic process / Integrating logistic partners & real time communication by providing a custom API

"HuggyStudio’s interdisciplinary mindset and the fact that they knew what they were doing helped us implement very quickly what needed to be developed. From speeding the time to market, to having a team actively thinking about the product itself and not only staying in the role of receiving and adapting the features; but also further developing the platform."
Pascal Kappeler, CPO of Farie.ch

The power of no-code for innovation teams

For Pascal Kappeler, many goals have been achieved since the beginning of the intense months of collaboration. Working with no-code tools, having the right technology for an MVP, effective communication channels, as well as keeping in mind the time to market was key to the success of the project. 

Using no-code tools can smooth the process when working with innovation projects at any corporate level. “If you want to build a minimum viable product (MVP) and easily start at low costs, Bubble.io is a good option, I do see possible paths of how Bubble can boost innovation”, added Pascal, who also said that the speed to launch to market was pretty astonishing.
