Partner offers are also available such as a flower shop, the Netto photo world, the Netto media shop, a gift card selection, and wines.
Tengelmann E-Stores GmbH approached dotSource with the goal of fundamentally modernising their technology stack. A first requirement survey was initially provided for the rollouts of the individual shops GartenXXL and Plus. As part of the Kaiser's Tengelmann acquisition by Edeka, Netto eStores with the shops Netto-Online24.de, Plus.de, and GartenXXL.de was formed.
The extended scope presented the project team with a real Herculean task: For the Netto online shop, a complete technology change from Oxid PHP to Intershop 7.7 including the connection of all relevant interfaces had to be designed and implemented within three months.
Nevertheless, in order to be able to provide the shop on time and thus avoid customer and sales losses, the team-oriented itself on the principle of minimum viable product (MVP). The establishment of modern tools and agile techniques in the development process was an essential part of the knowledge transfer. Thus, NeS GmbH’s team got valuable tools for accelerated and error-free software development.
