We worked with the team at the BCLDB to design and develop a pricing model for the province’s liquor stores and the LDB Product-Price application architecture based on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). We are currently part of the team to maintain the province-wide system.



The core challenge was developing a robust, reliable, stable and large-scale pricing model and Product-Price application architecture that would allow the BCLDB to sell liquor in stores across the province.


The final solution was the development of a robust pricing model and LDB Product-Price application architecture.
