Lesershop24 is an established subscription shop of BILD GmbH & Co KG.
BILD is Europe’s biggest newspaper and Germany’s largest online news portal. BILD accompanies their readers throughout the day - no matter where, on paper, smartphone, tablet, smartwatch, or internet-enabled TV.
INITIAL SITUATION & PROJECT AIM
The software of the existing lesershop24 no longer met the current technological standards. For this reason, BILD approached dotSource with the desire for a new shop with the following objectives:
- modern web technologies
- contemporary online appearance
- simple, effective, and very variable product data maintenance
- technically flawless, fast, stringent, and visually appealing purchase and payment process, without a separate customer area
With the migration to Magento Enterprise Edition 2.1, a base was created for the shop according to the latest technological standards. In order to enable a simple and less complex design of the web shop interface, dotSource used a page builder plug-in. With the help of this, in the BackOffice, widgets can now be simply dragged and dropped and filled with content.
Thanks to the versatile configuration options make the pages easy to customise. In addition, dotSource implemented an SAP interface.
AGILE PROJECT APPROACH
In order to respond flexibly to the requirements of BILD GmbH & Co. KG, dotSource, completed the project within eleven two-week sprints accord to the Scrum principle.
True to the idea of the agile project approach, the team was on-site every two weeks for joint sprint planning and review, and provided constant support in refining the requirements.
