Βecoming an international e-commerce company.
Sami Sacha Flowers is a flower delivery company founded in the highlands of Cotopaxi in Ecuador. They grow and wholesale flower crops with a community-driven ethos, and profound respect for nature.
This native Ecuadorian floriculturist is also conscious of eliminating waste and has created a harvest-on-demand business model that is accurately aligned with its ‘make beauty not waste’ commitment.
Sami Sacha Flowers’ next natural step was to expand into an international market, positioning themselves as an agile company that delivers on time, and with a positive environmental footprint.
Sami Sacha Flowers had a goal to reach the U.S., and become a leading flower delivering company in North America. To achieve this goal, they partnered with BACKBONE to digitally transform their services, facilitate the elevation of their operations into an e business, and to get them in front of a larger and broader audience. In order to guarantee timely and safe delivery to homes across America - which translates into expanding their services and product delivery - Sami Sacha needed an eCommerce platform.
After thorough discovery sessions, BACKBONE created a roadmap that would help Sami Sacha handle all of its traditional operations and logistics, digitally!
Opportunities & Challenges
BACKBONE’s high-end digital solution needed exceptional integration planning and demanding project management, ensuring that at no stage of the process would the business’ operations be interrupted.
The project required customer management software, ERP integration, ecommerce design and website development, as well as specific e-commerce logistics systems that take every supply chain process into consideration, from the Ecuadorian fields to American homes within a four-day timeframe. Additionally, the design had to showcase the core values of the brand: sustainable and environmentally responsible production, a creative, joyful attitude, and a go-getter mindset.
The BACKBONE team of professionals brought together its talent and expertise to make this digital transformation project a success. The team aimed to secure an outstanding customer experience, seamless data integration, and brand aligned design.
Vital for this project was an impeccable and unique design that provided a balanced and user-centric digital experience. The main focus areas of this project were:
- Going all-in on digital, to fully digitize the company’s traditional operations and logistics in order to easily expand to a North American audience.
- Smart and memorable UX through the development of an automated customer management platform
Key features of the project
Custom integrations with ERP, CRM & high-quality payment gateways:

Customer subscription system:
The new Sami Sacha Flowers ecommerce platform offers a monthly subscription system, which affords flower lovers the opportunity to receive a different, personalized package on their doorstep every month.
